Meeting the Inland Empire’s Community, Economic and Environmental Needs
Inland Empire’s warehouse and logistics facilities are ideally situated to meet growing U.S. demand. We support the largest consumer base in the United States and, at present, have a vacancy rate of less than 1%. The IE’s goods movement industry is an integral part of the global supply chain that provides a number of regional benefits, including:
- Economic: Local warehouse and logistics centers are uniquely located to serve our nation’s growing consumer base due to our proximity to the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach and our ability to efficiently move goods to seven western states.
- Jobs: More than 200,000 jobs are attributed to the warehouse and logistics facilities in the Inland Empire. Entry-level warehouse positions provide good-paying jobs, as well as a path toward higher-paying employment with opportunities for career advancement.
- Environmental: The warehouse and logistics industry is focused on enhancing air quality and reducing emissions by developing and operating the cleanest facilities in the United States. Working collaboratively with lawmakers and environmental groups, the industry has established good neighbor policies to ensure the industry meets and exceeds environmental and community standards.
- Community: The warehouse and logistics industry is a strong community partner, improving neighborhood infrastructure (schools, parks, habitat preservation plans, libraries, public safety facilities, sidewalks, and more) and providing an array of community benefits that extend beyond the physical boundaries of each project.
