A couple of decades ago, what we now call “warehouses” & “Fulfilment Centres” used to be a dilapidated building called “Godowns “. The Industry has come a long way from those days to become a backbone of the business and burgeoning e-commerce industry.

The sector is evolving at a pace, with both the nature of the business and technology driving it and undergoing dynamic changes. In the face of regulatory and infrastructural challenges, warehousing industry-changing gears rapidly to support the growth that the Indian economy is trying to achieve.

One of the Key instrumental players in this rapid growth is the upliftment construction standards of the warehouses in the country. Construction standards have evolved from Godowns to Grade A type of warehousing infrastructure which is at par with Global Standards.

A few initiatives from the Industry to follow global standards in Pre-engineered metal buildings, flooring, firefighting, and so forth have facelifted the warehousing outlook in India to Global standard.

We at FWS are continually striving to uplift our construction standard in each of our upcoming logistics parks.
