Conveyors for Logistics
Over the past few months and with so many people working from home or on furlough, with our normal trips to the shops on hold, there has been a dramatic increase in online shopping and many logistics and distribution companies across the UK are dealing with thousands of orders on a daily basis.
Online retail sales grew by a staggering 23.8% year-on-year in April 2020, a 10-year high with a 25% increase for retailers from March 2020, and this trend is set to continue even although lockdown restrictions have been lifted. The purchase of gardening equipment and plants has grown throughout the COVID period by 288%, with sales of electrical items increasing by 102% year on year for June and there has been incredible growth for the health and beauty industry with an 82% rise in online orders.
So as we look to the future, there will be an increase in the percentage of retail spending from online (30% in 2019) and logistics and distribution companies that need to process stock, orders and returns efficiently and safely may be thinking about how they do it’s cost-effectively.
