Europe E-commerce Logistics Trends Analyzed in Research Report by Transport Intelligence
06 Mar 2013 • by Natalie Aster
Despite a weak economy, European e-commerce activity is flourishing. In 2012, the region’s e-commerce market grew by 12%, despite a decline in overall retail sales for the same period.
According to report “Europe E-commerce Logistics 2013” by Transport Intelligence, online-only retailers, known as “pure plays”, initially benefited from the swift increase in e-commerce sales. However, now brick & mortar retailers are fighting back and as a result, some are experiencing double-digit growth in their online offerings.

The ability to not only adapt to a changing retail industry, but also to respond to these changes with a flexible, agile supply chain is now a necessity for retailers to survive. Some retailers, such as Jessops and Comet in the UK, have been too slow to adopt a multi-channel approach and this has, in part, resulted in both companies being declared bankrupt.
Logistics providers and postal services have also had to respond quickly to the rapid rise in demand for ecommerce solutions. Although providers have developed tailored solutions for transport, fulfilment and returns, few have developed the sophisticated services which eretailers demand. Therefore, a large proportion of e-retail logistics functions are still not out-sourced.
Ti’s new report Europe e-commerce Logistics 2013 provides unique analysis of the latest trends in the region’s e-commerce market; including a breakdown of the market by individual countries. The report also provides overviews of major retailers’ supply chains as well as profiles of the key logistics providers and postal services providing e-commerce solutions in Europe.
