The pandemic has driven movement to happen. One of them is online retailing. In Vancouver, British Columbia, the store retails are failing to survive through the pandemic and the reasons are simple. Constant revolving of government restrictions, safety protocol, and factory shortages are all accountable for being the biggest factors in the past 14 months.

Food establishments turn to food couriers. The store retails turn to local logistics dispatch. All are done through mobile channels. This is the big year where internet fulfillment is advancing unprecedentedly. Many vendors are seemingly setting up their own online stores. Whether it is for appeal, furniture, or food, undoubtedly it is a giant leap for the traditional market.

Spontaneous experiences and instant services are in demand, and they have become must-haves for service providers nowadays. In logistics and trucking markets, EDI is commonly used between B2B.

Act proactively will increase the chance to survive in the e-commerce driven markets and pandemic.
