As lockdown continues, many retailers have experiences of “record breaking” orders for their products online, some are also managing the adversities of corrugate shortages caused by the unprecedented demand for boxes.

Modern retail and commerce continues to evolve away from the high street and towards the digital world. Extra convenience is the key driver from the shopper’s perspective, and as a retailer, it’s simply been a case of looking to accommodate for this paradigm shift. For businesses in some industries, this has been a huge success. Online retail enables more customers from a wider expanse of geographies to be serviced, helping to bring in higher revenue and to ultimately allow a business to grow.
As an online retailer, the run up to Christmas is arguably the most important time of year.
