This paper formally analyzes the role of e-commerce revenue in explaining the changes in industrial rents in the 206 largest Metropolitan Statistical Areas. To analyze this connection, I match commercial real estate data from CoStar, market data from the U.S. Census Bureau, and an estimation of MSA level e-commerce. The results from the generalized least squares model indicate that e-commerce revenue positively affects asking rent and rent growth. This suggests that new fulfillment practices from e-commerce companies are disrupting metropolitan area industrial markets.
