Online shopping has made shopping so much more convenient for the retail lovers.  With just the click of a button shoppers can make purchases without having to leave their homes.

According to, a report by a real estate research firm, ” Retailers online and offline will need a combined 25 million square meters combined in additional space over the next five years to handle the stuff they sell.”  There is going to be a growing demand for “mega e-fulfilment centres” in the style of the million-square-foot warehouses that anchor Amazon’s operations.

Retailers are looking to build smaller warehouses closer to cities and stock them with a more limited inventory of commonly ordered goods.

Online shopping is opening doors for the new kind of spread of retail infrastructure.  Shoppers now have the option of  having their packages delivered to a place where it is more convenient for pick up.  These warehouses are going to be guarded by robots that can navigate through these intricate mazes of consumer goods.
