Welcome to the Warehouse & Logistics News Annual 2024, an extensive study of some of the leading companies and trade associations in the warehousing industry, who have demonstrated their excellence in the sector. This publication will help you make purchasing decisions and provide an indispensable resource for anyone looking for warehouse equipment and logistics solutions. We extend our thanks to all the supporters of this title.


Warehousing and logistics continue to be one of the fastest growing sectors in the UK economy, thanks to the continuing growth of e-commerce.

This high online spending has helped the industry have another successful year, rising to meet the challenges of both domestic and global business. The resilience demonstrated by the warehousing and logistics industry is one reason why the UK is the sixth-largest national economy in the world measured by nominal gross domestic product (GDP). The nation has earned a reputation as one of the foremost countries in which to do business, with foreign firms wanting to set up shop here, partly because of Britain’s thriving warehousing and logistics industry.

The Annual demonstrates that the UK warehouse and logistics market is a place for quality innovators in every sector and will always welcome new players with a strong customer proposition. Simultaneously, British firms are expanding their business both in the UK and around the world.

The trend towards autonomous operations within logistics continues to develop as businesses look for ways to improve efficiency and productivity, while reducing costs and environmental impacts. More than a quarter (26%) of warehouses are expected to be automated by 2027, from 14% just a decade earlier, according to Interact Analysis.

Warehouse & Logistics News, the industry’s only fortnightly title, will keep you updated with all the news and features to help you meet the challenges and opportunities of 2024.
