U.S. Online Shoppers Click With International Retailers

Over the past 10 years, E-commerce and online shopping has completely altered the landscape of the retail landscape.  The newest part of this trend is that international retailers are making huge headways into the domestic E-commerce market.  From Inbound Logistics:

“Nearly half of avid U.S. online shoppers bought items from international retailers, demonstrating the need for retailers to offer more personalized services as a way to compete against lower prices, according to UPS’ sixth annual Pulse of the Online Shopperstudy.”

 

“The lines that separate domestic and international retailers continue to disappear,” says Alan Gershenhorn, chief commercial officer for UPS. “Retailers are now competing across the globe. In order to win, retailers can distinguish themselves by providing value through personalized experiences.”

 

Clearly these trends indicate the importance of having a modern and responsive supply chain.  Valley Distributing & Storage provides logistics services to those companies who take advantage of E-commerce and omnichannel integration.
