Our world is experiencing the greatest online integration, and perhaps the most visible shift due to this is that consumers have to move less to trade.
In 2015, about 46% of sales were made online, particularly on mobile phones. Interestingly, a majority of these shoppers desired so badly to enjoy their shopping before dinner time. In the UK, for instance, online buyers were willing to pay up to 12% over the product value for same day parcel delivery from companies such as Atomlogistics.com.
This is a trade that is easily available for everyone.
The goal of same day parcel delivery providers is to build a supply chain that serves a global generation that lives in small households, works long hours and can access the internet on their phone, but struggles with declining income. A good delivery model cannot ignore climate change, terror, counterfeits or cyber-threats.
Business-to-Business (B2B) is still one of the greatest assets of parcel delivery services. Although companies usually secure an overnight sorting system and fleet, the e-commerce model is built to go beyond modern cities, into the country. A courier should emphasise listening, sharing data, training, subsidising equipment and facilities, and most of all, ensuring profitable and equitable contracts.
Products are solutions. Sadly, however, their access is denied by oil prices, unfair foreign policy and insecurity. The fastest growing parcel movers in the UK partner with the world’s greatest couriers to provide cheaper inputs, zero warehousing, insurance and security, and faster delivery of high-quality products to consumers.
As service providers realise this goal, communities are already noticing less wastage, unnecessary consumption, and a cleaner and healthier planet.
Has it worked so far? Yes, and every single part of the community benefits from it.
