Peterborough has been known for their role in the Industrial Revolution since the 19th century, just after the railway network around that area was completed. Up until the Second World War, Peterborough was the go-to city for brick manufacturing. However, after the war, employment in this industry fell as more of a workforce was needed to build and restore housing in the city. Unfortunately, employment in the manufacturing sector fell even further, with more people than ever before moving to jobs in the finance sector or distribution.

Due to the rise of employment and interest in the distribution sector, more people than ever before are now working in warehouses, distributing a variety of goods across the country and, in some cases, around the globe. In 2006, the Gateway warehouse and distribution park was opened, generating nearly 9,000 jobs – mainly to compensate for the rapid decline in employment throughout the manufacturing industry.
