ST - ECommerce Statistics

Ecommerce continues to accelerate at a rapid pace, now accounting for about 10% of US retail sales and much more than that in other countries. While both start-ups and long-established brick and mortar businesses are relying on ecommerce for growth, logistics has become a major impediment. The shipping of orders is fraught with operating issues and a big drag on profits:-    Should shipments originate from a retail location or a separate warehouse?-    When should additional shipping locations be added and where should they be located?-    What parts of ecommerce operations can be outsourced?-    How can ecommerce operations be made more efficient? -    Returns: a big problem every business must contend with-    Managing and measuring logistics costs: difficult for the big players, a death knell for start-upsThis course will provide answers to all of the above and will outline how more successful ecommerce companies manage logistics.
