The 2020 COVID-19 pandemic has caused widespread disruption in every industry, but it’s also ushered in some unique growth opportunities for merchants.
As the pandemic upended consumers’ lives and work routines, this led to a whole host of new-found needs, with many retailers suddenly finding themselves in demand like never before. According to BCG, e-commerce sales in late March 2020 were 58% higher than during the same period in 2019 – and this surge shows no signs of easing as we head further into 2021.
A boost in sales is always a welcome development, but can only become lasting if a brand can pivot its fulfillment and distribution strategies to meet increased order volumes head-on.
This is where a strong 3PL partnership can make all the difference to your prospects.
