CHICAGO—The expansion of e-commerce has transformed the US industrial market in ways large and small, and fueled a remarkable expansion that has already outlasted any other in the post WW II-era. Many investors and developers have begun to wonder just how much longer this stupendous growth can continue. But most seem to agree that the nation’s supply chain still needs a lot of work to make it compatible with the needs of e-commerce, and that means there is every likelihood that this expansion will continue for a relatively long stretch, even if a few cracks have begun to appear.
