COMPANIES are struggling for storage space as available storage space in the city is becoming scarce.
Brighton was sixth in a list of UK cities with the lowest amount of warehouse space per registered business.
Only 3.33 square meters of storage space is available for each of the companies in the city.
It’s one of the worst-hit areas at 56,617 square feet for the 17,010 registered businesses.
Orderwise, which analyzed the data, said the pandemic was partly responsible for the shortage.
Jon Roberts, Sales Director at Orderwise, said: “While much of the industry is trying to return to some normality, industrial companies continue to grapple with the hangover from Covid, Brexit and general supply chain issues that have been around for years.
“It is important that companies learn to use the space available to them more intelligently.
“This could be done through automation or by investing in a warehouse management system that can help.
“Even in the areas with the most space, it is important that warehouse operations are efficient so that companies can achieve their goals.”
Brighton even ranked ahead of London, which ranked seventh, while Slough stood out as the area with the least available storage space per business.
The 50 most populous cities in Great Britain were surveyed.
