Kentucky’s Distribution and Logistics Industry Slated to Take Off
9 Jun 2021
After a year rife with disruption and unprecedented challenges, America’s businesses are gearing up for a rebound. But one industry never slowed down, and Kentucky is uniquely poised to capitalize on its continued rise.
The industry, distribution and logistics, stepped up in a major way amid the pandemic, as online ordering and home delivery grew even more essential. The Bluegrass State, in the most literal sense, sits at the center of those efforts.
E-commerce helped drive the industry’s growth across the past two decades, as online shopping became an integral part of modern life. While e-commerce comprised less than 1% of all retail sales in 2000, that number climbed to more than 11% by 2019.
