Lockdown-induced e-commerce shift here to stay for supply chains

As an international logistics service provider, Davies Turner's presence in the e-commerce logistics arena is growing and we note that more than a third of businesses believe that the move to online shopping seen during the COVID-19 pandemic is now a permanent shift, according to new research from international supply chain and logistics consultancy SCALA.

From surveying business leaders across the grocery and homeware industries, 36% of companies believe that e-Commerce will now remain at the inflated levels seen during the COVID-19 pandemic, wherein enforced social distancing restrictions prompted a surge in e-Commerce activity.

Notably, the majority of businesses also reported a belief that e-Commerce levels will increase further still over the coming months, with more than two-thirds (67%) of grocery businesses, and 89% of non-grocery businesses predicting that more growth is yet to come.
