Global E-Commerce Logistics – Christoph Stork

Over the past two decades, the world has witnessed significant growth in e-commerce, initially led by Western countries such as the US and Europe, and more recently by emerging markets like China. The rise of e-commerce has prompted companies to adapt and start selling online through various channels including their own websites, distributors, and online marketplaces. The COVID-19 pandemic further accelerated the shift towards online shopping, as consumers were confined to their homes and turned to the internet to fulfill their purchasing needs. This surge in online shopping presented both opportunities and challenges for brands, forcing them to rapidly scale their online operations to meet the increased demand. Looking ahead, while the growth rate of e-commerce might taper off post-pandemic, the trend is expected to continue as companies increasingly invest in their online presence to cater to consumer preferences for online shopping and to establish direct relationships with their customers.
