Over the past few years, the warehousing and distribution industry has gone through major shifts. The sizes of these infrastructures got smaller, their locations became closer to the markets they serve. Instead of catering to stores and other businesses, they are now committing to the consumer directly and promising shorter and shorter delivery times.
At the same time real estate has gotten more expensive. So the practical solution is to build vertically. Warehouses and distribution centers are getting higher and higher. The use of spiral conveyors for vertical conveying is critical in this small footprint, higher elevations scenario.
