The Pandemic Tests the Limits of Ecommerce

Posted by Speed Commerce on December 1, 2020

During the pandemic, retailers have had to switch from in-store shopping to curbside pick up and delivery placing more burden on their ecommerce and logistics teams. 

Analysts had projected that shoppers would do most of their shopping online following Thanksgiving this year. As reported by The Washington Post “in-store shopping fell 55 percent on Thanksgiving and 37 percent on Black Friday, compared with a year ago.”

Ecommerce sales hit an all-time record high with Americans spending $10.8 billion online during Cyber Monday. That’s up 15 percent from last year and is the largest online shopping day in U.S. history. 

The trend in online shopping is expected to continue. Retail establishments have already made sweeping changes to their supply chains. Many still struggle with order fulfillment from their retail shops.
