THE ROLE OF LOGISTICS AND INTERNATIONAL TRANSPORT IN THE ONLINE BUSINESS ARENA

March 22, 2016 0Air Cargo

In recent times, Ecommerce has grown to become a multi billion dollar industry valued at a massive $1.5 trillion at a global scale. The escalation doesn’t stop there; the industry is expected to grow 20% in the next year alone. This major development is attributed to the increasingly evolving technology and the changes in consumer behavior. However, the key factor in the drastic expansion is the latest evolution that is m-commerce.

Having an online presence has made it much easier for customers where they can effortlessly evaluate performances, features and prices, read feedback and reviews by other users and easily assess functionalities. While this convenience is great for customers, it has proved to be an additional burden for providers because the products being ordered online need to be delivered in a suitable manner. Conversely, this has also enabled the growth of massive online ventures like Amazon and eBay.

In a recent study it was revealed that 71% of people prefer to shop online and the reason for this is that they feel that they can get a better deal. This is a direct contrast to the situation when people some time back preferred their purchases to be present at a store. This significant growth has been even more pronounced in the last couple of years.

With the boom of online shopping, every market is facing huge challenges in completing online orders efficiently. The international logistics business has proved to be answer to these challenges. Handling their own delivery is not an option for most businesses as it brings its own set of difficulties and with this in mind, the majority of businesses have turned to outsourcing or partnering with trusted logistics providers.

A number of logistics providers have advanced up the supply chain to provide added features such as special transport conditions like eco friendly options and temperature control and warehouse facilities while maintaining optimum service standards.  This outsourcing to logistic providers is a giant leap from a few years back when delivery was handled by businesses themselves.

A satisfactory fulfillment of an order placed is the most important objective as this will translate into the success of your brand image in general. Finding the best logistics provider who fits the criteria is vital for the success of your business and that’s where AKV can help you. With years of experience and expertise, we guarantee that all your logistics requirements are safe in our hands.
