Standish, MI -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/16/2017 -- Magline, the leader in material handling solutions, sees e-commerce as a main driver of growth across retail, wholesale, and manufacturing alike., specifically when it comes to last mile delivery. E-commerce retail sales in the US grew at nearly 15% last year, about 10 times the 1.5% growth rate for retail overall. To seize this opportunity, shippers need to integrate their e-commerce fulfillment with transportation management capabilities.
e-commerce is driving increasing complexity in logistics and more companies are learning how to build an integrated approach that enables omni-fulfillment, increasing customer service, while controlling costs. The changes to shipping are continuously evolving, with shippers accommodating increased home delivery, drop shipments, and international customers. The opportunities are exploding, but transportation needs to have an integrated strategy, and in many cases the additional revenue growth will be offset by higher costs. A path to profitable and flexible growth is essential.
Online retailers are combating costly logistics issues with innovative ideas in order to reach their consumers and win in the market. Online consumers in India pick up packages at metro stations, as opposed to opting for a more complicated at-home delivery. And JD.com, one of the largest online merchants in China, has been working with drone delivery to better serve its rural online shoppers.
