The Shippers Group Chronicles 120 Years in Warehousing

Evolution of 3PL, Innovation & Supply Chain

By Robin Siekerman, Vice President Marketing & Customer Solutions

At the beginning of the 20th century, the average annual wage was $432, a postage stamp was $.02, and the cost of 5 pound bag of flour was $.12. So much has change in 120 years, including how we purchase goods and how they get to our homes.

When Shippers Warehouse was founded in 1901, warehousing existed mainly for commodities storage, and the grocery distribution industry was still decades away. Food distribution was handled by small local farmers through the 1940’s. Chain stores and supermarkets emerged and grew quickly in the years between 1910 and 1960, but it wasn’t until the 1960’s that we saw the growth of grocery warehousing and food distribution centers. 

Warehousing, Transportation, and Inventory Management have undergone dramatic transformation in the past century. Read on as we explore the evolution of an industry and The Shippers Group.
