Amazon is leading the competition for fulfillment centers and last-mile delivery locations, and the e-commerce behemoth is also pushing the new supply pipelines as developers scramble to complete large facilities. 

“When it comes to e-commerce, there is Amazon and then there is everyone else,” notes a recent report from CommercialEdge on the state of the industrial sector. “Between the behemoth’s direct sales to consumers and third-party sales through its platform, it is by far the dominant force in online retailing. Even as other companies, like Wal-mart, surpassed it in e-commerce growth in 2020, they are still playing catch-up.”
