Big Factors in E-Commerce Market

by Michael Kotendzhi | Logistics, Warehousing, Food & Drink

After a giant leap in 2020, all the e-commerce businesses to show and prove they are holding up the supply chain on the West Coast of Canada, the operation appears to be matured enough to adjust. What improvements can be foreseeable to anticipate trajectory?

E-commerce fulfillment takes a big role amidst the pandemic for the citizens in Vancouver, British Columbia. With lockdowns and safety protocols in place, people remain indoors and rely on the online market giants to take care of the essentials.  Orders, reorders, and returns are done seamlessly, or at least so it seems. The cost and the speed are what drives the market to expand at an accelerated pace.

Speed means availability and transportation. Speed consists of inventory management and flexible logistics. The time between the time when customers press “pay” and the time when the products arrive in customers’ hands. It is a critical factor to the rate of returning customers relying upon.

Cost means sustainability in a company’s finance whether it can keep up the game or not. The shipping costs, return costs, and logistics costs are the crucial factors in e-com businesses as they take an enormous portion of the operating costs.
