LOGISTICAL CHALLENGES IN E-COMMERCE The market volume of the e-commerce sector continues to grow unabated.
Both technically and in terms of distribution, online trade has reached a high degree of maturity. Nevertheless, not all goals have been reached by a long shot. Visions and new areas of activity jumped again throughout COVID-19.
Current trends in the e-commerce industry include cross- and omni-channel approaches, including even further selections in the world of DTC (direct-to-consumer) subscriptions. Warehouse space is at a premium. From bricks-and-mortar retailers, such as Media-Markt and Saturn, to supermarket conglomerates, such as Rewe, many have conquered the e-commerce world with their online shops. For the customer, this offer means above all more flexibility, choice, and convenience. They can conveniently view products online or in store and then order them to home or work at their desired time. For retailers, choice creates intense cost pressures.
