Why Warehouse Wages are Up & Workers in Short Supply

By Robin Siekerman, Vice President Marketing & Customer Solutions

Wages in the supply chain industry are increasing at the fastest pace seen in years in response to a shortage of labor. Prior to the pandemic, warehousing and distribution providers were already struggling from a labor market that was close to full employment, especially in high density distribution markets such as Atlanta and Dallas.

Compared to other industries, record job losses during the pandemic did not impact the supply chain industry as workers are considered essential to the movement of food, consumer packaged goods, and healthcare. However, today’s labor shortage in the warehousing industry is worse while the unemployment rate sits at 5.4%, with over 1 million more job openings (across all industries) than people looking for work at every skill and salary level.
