E-commerce is growing in popularity year by year. Last year in particular, the corona pandemic increasingly steered Finns to online shopping. To support successful e-commerce, companies need quality partners and well-functioning supply chains.
Finns have been shopping online for several years now. A recent digital trade survey carried out by the Federation of Finnish Commerce shows that, for example, the digital purchase of retail products increased by 22 per cent last year and the number of active digital buyers in Finland clearly increased.
With the pandemic, more and more Finns are shopping online and the network is establishing its position as a shopping channel. According to a report by the Federation of Finnish Commerce, in addition to groceries, books, home furnishings, household appliances, household goods, cosmetics and pet products were bought online more often than before.
Outsourcing e-commerce logistics to a professional brings savings
Growing consumer demands for product delivery times are increasing the pressure on the online retailer. The success of e-commerce is affected by the logistical process specified by the company for purchasing, warehousing and delivery. The order-delivery process must be thought through to the end, from the click leading to the customer’s purchase to when the product is in the customer’s hand.
Outsourcing e-commerce logistics is one of the keys to success. Maintaining and managing your own inventory requires a lot of resources. When handled by professionals, logistics run smoothly and the company can focus on its own core competencies. When handled by a logistics partner, the products are delivered to the customer in the agreed manner and on schedule. Successful logistics behind e-commerce affects a company’s profitability.
