The Furniture Industry and the Advent of E-commerce Fulfillment
For nearly two centuries, the American Furniture Industry’s distribution system was largely unchanged. Most furniture manufacturers were located in the Carolinas and Virginia, where they had easy access to an abundance of various hardwoods and a multitude of shipping options to deliver their goods to retailers across the nation.
