This interesting piece from IT Pro Portal assesses the role warehouses can play in the development of a more agile supply chain. It suggests the inflexibility of warehouse deals has become ever more apparent against the increasing flexibility of the wider supply chain. Going further, it claims these spaces could present a perfect source of revenue and wider flexibility still, with excess space being rented out. All this, however, hinges on a move away from “long drawn-out” searches and “complex” negotiations for the space in the first place, and instead adopting a “warehouse as a service” model.
