Significant shifts in the last decade have seen Amazon replace Walmart as the world’s largest retailer. Although 90% of Americans live within 16 kilometres of a Walmart store, offering an obvious competitive advantage if a customer wants something immediately, traditional ‘bricks and mortar’ retailing struggles to provide the level of choice that online retailing can provide.
With e-commerce growing at a rate of 15% in 2021 it is not difficult to see a similar trend occurring in New Zealand.
As more consumers shift their purchasing behaviours online the timely shipping and distribution of goods to New Zealand consumers will only become more important. As New Zealand companies embrace the potential of international e-commerce, shipping New Zealand goods and connecting with international shipping will also become increasingly more important.
