    Industry Report - Industry Investment Chapter

    Capital intensity is low for the Fresh Bread and Bakery Goods Wholesaling industry. For every dollar the industry spends on labor, IBISWorld estimates that only $0.10 is invested in capital expenses. Even as automation increasingly represents a cost-effective alternative to some industry jobs, wholesaling is inherently labor-intensive, as taking, filling and shipping orders still require a significant amount of manual labor. Furthermore, human labor will always be necessary to undertake the decision-making about what product lines to carry and how to create an effective business strategy. Consequently, wages are expected to account for 4.3% of revenue, while depreciation costs are anticipated to represent a small 0.4% share in 2016.
