According to Ecommerce News, France has announced plans to pause the development of warehouses used by e-commerce companies.

The Minister of Environment wants to stimulate a broader discussion about e-commerce in France. She explained that France wants to protect small retail businesses, by helping them survive the expansion of major e-commerce companies.

A moratorium would allow for the commissioning of a parliamentary report to probe the impact on jobs and local areas linked to warehouse plansrn
