Weber Logistics’ EVP, Strategy & Marketing Fred Gilbert is featured in an article from Transport Topics which examines the current state of warehousing in relation to space and labor scarcity. Gilbert observes that “product is not leaving the warehouse as quickly as expected, leading to very full warehouses.”
The article also deals with the ramifications of the recent container ship logjams at US ports. In many instances, these logjams resulted in missed retail windows, which means that inventory that should have gone from ships to store shelves is instead stored in warehouses across the country.
