The trend is toward outsourcing in general, said Tom Lauterback, marketing and public relations manager for the International Warehouse Logistics Association in Park Ridge, Ill. "Manufacturers want to hand off certain functions, things terribly important in getting the product to the customer," Lauterback said."Certainly the most popular is logistics services." Third-party logistics is a "lucrative industry," growing 15 percent to 20 percent annually, Lauterback said.It is a $45 billion to $50 billion-a-year industry in the United States, he said. Lauterback, of the International Warehouse Logistics Association, noted the importance of today's logistics companies being focused on state-of-the-art facilities and technology. Warehouses might be perceived as dank buildings "with forklifts running around trying to find products, but the reality is they're high-tech businesses," Lauterback said."It's very software dependent."

Sales have almost doubled in the last three years, according to Tom Lauterback, vice president of communications for the Electronic Industries Association, a trade group representing the manufacturers of electronic gadgets such as answering machines.
As a result, the average price of a machine for home use today is $70, according to Lauterback. Prices also have been greatly reduced by the volume of sales in the last few years, said Lauterback. "I don't think it's home business so much as people's busy lifestyles," said Lauterback.
