Beautiful problem !

The circle has more area.

If you have a circle and a square, with the circumference of the circle equal to

the perimeter of the square, then the area of the circle is always

(4/pi) = 1.27324

times as much as the area of the square.

If you have some length of fence in your warehouse, the most land you can

enclose with it is to set it up in a circle.

It is not. If you draw yourself a square then inscribe a circle with a radius of half the length of a side of the square, the circle will fit inside the square but the corners of the square will be outside the circle. Thus by inspection the area of the square is larger than the area of the circle.
