E-commerce is one of the fastest growing sectors when compared to other business sectors, Coronavirus pandemic has accelerated the e-commerce growth to 25% in 2020 compared to the previous year.
The pandemic has forced e-commerce onto many consumers who have rarely or never shopped via the Internet previously and expanded the use of current digital shoppers.
Retail e-commerce takes the lion’s share in the total e-commerce sector, the total sales in this sector has reached $ 3.9 Trillion and this is expected to reach $ 6.8 Trillion by 2025 with a year-on-year growth of 12%.
Most of the large e-commerce are marketplace models like Amazon.com and Alibaba who have transformed their business to an e-marketplace connecting large pool of customer with vendors across nations and even cross border. Third party logistics service providers are trying to grab as much as market share provided by these marketplaces.
E-commerce logistics market can be segmented as follows:
The global e-commerce market is expected to grow at the rate of CAGR XX% by the year 2026 to be worth $XX billion.
The number of companies investing in the e-commerce business is increasing which increases the outreach of existing companies and enhances the growth of the market.
The logistics companies have been implementing innovative technologies to expand their business and offer a greater number of delivery options.
The most recent trends used by logistics companies are drone-based delivery systems, GPS enabled tracking orders which helps the customer to track orders, tie-ups with local vendors to deliver products on the same day.
Generally, e-commerce companies sign agreements with logistics companies to enable widespread delivery systems which help them in efficiently monitoring and managing their services.
Amazon has established a new standard, with many customers expecting things ordered online to arrive within 48 hours. Other major retailers, such as Target and Walmart, are now competing with Amazon by making two-day shipping a basic feature of their platforms.
Organizations will need to invest in their warehouses and distribution centers, as well as boost the development and implementation of innovative supply chain and logistics systems, to keep up with increased demand from e-commerce channels and match consumer expectations.
New technologies like augmented reality, drones, advanced robotics, and smart glasses for hands-free pick, pack, and ship are essential for lowering costs and ensuring the company’s competitiveness and customer satisfaction.
The ongoing rapid growth of e-commerce marketplaces will necessitate a similarly quick and imaginative response from the transportation and logistics industries. To be competitive in today’s market, businesses must invest in predictive software that is based on inventory sensing and linked to customer browsing and product interest in order to manage and expedite warehouse procedures.
Software-driven improvements, such as AI/ML, drones, autonomous machines, and analytics, will improve order fulfilment time, minimise inefficiencies, and substantially increase production and effectiveness.
The COVID-19 pandemic resulted in lockdowns and a halt in manufacturing activities across the world. Due to the lockdowns placed, people could not go out to buy products and necessities such as groceries and medicines. The lockdown implementation resulted in closing of the non-essential retail shops which promoted people to turn to e-commerce and shop online.
The demand for same-day and last-mile delivery increased tremendously for groceries and other essential necessities. The e-commerce platforms saw an increase in sales, for instance, in Italy the supermarket chain named Carrefour reported that their orders doubled during the lockdown. The logistics company Glovo, which was just a start-up, saw a 10-fold increase in the order for deliveries.
As the lockdowns lifted, customers started to return to the conventional way of shopping. However, the demand for e-commerce has still flourished due to the convenience customers have of ordering products sitting at home. The additional discounts serve as incentives for people to shop online, increasing the market of e-commerce logistics.
