In the 1980s, 20-foot clear heights for warehouses were common. Today, most newly-constructed Class A distribution centers have clear heights of 32’ to 36’ feet, increasing the capacity of an e-commerce warehouse, for example, by 10-25%. This chart is going to look a lot different in 12 months. Currently, there isn’t a big enough delta in pricing between an 18′ and 32′ clear height product. But it makes sense that clear heights will eventually have price discrepancies between higher and lower, unlike we’ve had in the last three years. Pricing will drop for the lower clear height, making price correction for the right product paramount.
