Warehouse space in the DFW area is skyrocketing. One study estimates that the area will experience 46.3 million square feet of new warehouse space in the next two years. This rapid expansion is due largely to the dramatic increase in e-commerce spending by consumers, which has led to a steep increase in the amount of inventory that needs to be managed through warehouses.
