Nelson, New Zealand -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/23/2015 -- IMGR Capgemini, e-Retail Sales Index, have released figures of online sales for 2014 rising as high as £103 billion. This figure is estimated to further increase to another 12% across 2015, meaning in every £4 spent, around £1 of that would be accounted for by online sales.
Online retail is becoming so popular that more and more retail giants both UK and internationally are thinking of branching into online sales; these companies include anything from worldwide supermarkets such as Aldi, to upmarket designers Chanel.
This leap in online sales has also influenced the increase in van and lorry sales due to the increased need for home delivery availability. Shrink wrapping and packaging specialists Adpak have made comment about the stark increase in online sales, and the significance of high quality and reliable packaging to aid this rise.
"With the vast surge in online retail in the past few years, there is a greater need for sturdy, supportive and trustworthy packaging. As there is a lot in the way of passing items from hand to hand, van to van, the packaging needs to be sustainable and able to ensure said items are in perfect condition when they reach the buyer,"a spokesperson from Adpak commented.
"In order for online buying to retain its prestigious position in the British market, sellers need to instil confidence in their shoppers that their products will arrive in mint condition. The highest class shrink wrapping is one of the best ways for products – and its packaging – to remain unaffected and undamaged during transit. It helps to keep the products clean, unmarked and tamperproof ensuring online sellers are delivering the quality its customers deserve."
