Amerijet Serves Couriers and Fulfillment Companies in Growing International Ecommerce Marketplace
Online shopping isn’t just limited to consumers. Ecommerce is booming to both the B2B and B2C markets. The global Business to Business ecommerce market valued at approximately 12.2 trillion in 2019, estimated at more than six times that of the Business to Consumer market, according to the B2B Ecommerce 2019 report by Statista.
In the B2B space, online sellers expect ecommerce to improve their revenue growth, yet face pressure to provide not only excellent service to their clients through their own customer service teams but also via their partners being courier companies or transportation providers
Growing global and Latin America ecommerce markets
More than one-half of all cross-border ecommerce purchases take place on a growing number of online marketplaces, not just the largest online selling platforms such as Amazon, Alibaba and Ebay in the B2C and B2B spaces, but vertical, specialized marketplaces which sell anything from chemicals and industrial equipment to furnishings and office supplies to B2B markets.
Retail ecommerce is still in the early stages of consumer adoption, representing 4.2% of Latin America’s retail industry this year. However, as more users come online, we estimate that more than one-third (35.0%) of the region’s population will make a digital purchase in 2019. We expect retail ecommerce sales in Latin America will grow 21.3% to $71.34 billion, tying the region with the Middle East and Africa as the world’s second-fastest-growing retail ecommerce market as published by eMarketer in June of 2019.
Finding a transportation service provider for international shipments
U.S. domestic and international ecommerce providers must provide timely communications with the customer about product availability, shipping and delivery. As a result, their transportation and delivery providers such as courier companies as well as express, parcel and air carriers must help these ecommerce sellers save time and money while providing unparalleled service levels to the customer.
According to the 2019 23rd Annual Third-Party Logistics (3PL): State of Logistics Outsourcing study, by Professor John Langley at Smeal College and Korn Ferry, the top priorities of both shippers and 3PLs for omnichannel fulfillment are 1) customer service; 2) service levels; and 3) freight costs.
