The retail apocalypse is pushing more and more logistic operations into the metros.

Traditional shippers need more and bigger facilities to handle the constant rise in volume, and stuff like Amazon Same Day is only viable if they have major warehouses inside of population centers. Right now it's an industry that is labor heavy, but that'll change.

Pretty much every warehousing/logistics automation video I've seen on youtube is either robits or complex conveyor systems.
