Is it just us or did 2018 go by way too fast? Feels like yesterday, watching the New Years fireworks overhead. And yet here we are, days away from 2019. That is precisely what we wanted to discuss with you.
E-commerce continues moving toward becoming the most popular shopping medium as each month goes by. In September 2018 e-commerce expanded by 11.4%. Today, since nearly all brands have a solid online presence, companies have been looking for ways to differentiate and get a leg-up on competition. Often times this falls into having extremely fast turn around on their shipping time frames and costs.
A study conducted recently has found that in 2012 people were willing to wait an average of 5.5 days for free shipping. Whereas now, that same study found that people are willing to wait only 4.5 days on average. Programs like Amazon Prime have made two-day shipping the standard, so cutting down on shipping time is vital for any e-commerce business looking to stay afloat.
Most importantly, this trend is definitely going to continue throughout 2019 as brands look for new ways to differentiate themselves from an increasingly saturated crowd through packaging & shipping.
