Why Demand for Warehousing Space is Soaring And How Technology is Maximizing Usage

November 21 17:24 2019

The continuing rise in e-commerce around the world has had many benefits for various markets, with transport companies and packaging firms in particular receiving a boost from the increasing popularity of online shopping and subsequent national and global shipping of goods. Another industry reaping the rewards is the warehousing and storage sector, with demand for warehousing space skyrocketing as firms look to emulate the Amazon model of large-scale storage and shipping. Anyone looking to establish their own warehousing in Toronto will find high rents and diminishing space.

As vacancy rates tumble to some of their lowest figures in nearly a decade, more real estate firms are planning to invest in warehousing space. And as 2019 continues, more firms are buying up available warehousing space to support their own endeavours in storing and shipping goods for online customers. It’s small wonder that warehouses are being described as “the future”.

Finding ready-made warehouse solutions

Firms that are finding warehousing in Toronto increasingly hard to come by can look to other companies that provide tailored storage and shipping services, such as RTL (Reliable Transportation Link), which is based in Vaughan, Ontario. In addition to providing trucking services across Calgary, Edmonton, Halifax, Montreal, Regina, Toronto, Vancouver, Winnipeg, plus other major destinations across Canada and the US, RTL have extensive warehousing space for customers to store items on both a short and long-term basis.

RTL has warehouse space of over one million square feet, with both inside and outside storage. As well as its warehousing in Toronto, RTL provides distribution services and order fulfilment, management of inventories, cross docking, truckload and less-than-truckload transportation throughout North America, a small parcel service and expert transportation for cross border shipments.

Creating smart warehouses through technology

Whether or not a customer will opt for a particular warehouse will depend on how well it has embraced technological advancements. Fast delivery of items sits alongside secure, tracked storage and distribution of items as priorities for customers when looking for a logistics provider.

RTL uses its own web-based information management system to fully track drivers and cargo, which also provides a comprehensive tracking facility for customers’ inventory from the point it’s received all the way through to its shipping. This inventory count continues to work on an ongoing basis to ensure the count is as accurate as possible. This tracking system also covers intermodal shipping, adding extra security while navigating busy ports and terminals.

With heavy duty vehicles to lift goods weighing from 999lb to 99,999lb, the RTL warehousing in Toronto can also store hazardous and dangerous goods if required. With 24/7 security and surveillance by CCTV and security guards, customers can also be reassured that their goods are safe and secure.
