DUBLIN, March 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/d6s8vz/global_b2c) has announced the addition of the "Global B2C E-Commerce Delivery 2015" report to their offering.
Delivery speed is also a major concern of global online shoppers. Especially in the emerging markets, online consumers have to cope with long delivery times, as online retailers struggle with underdeveloped logistics. Approximately two thirds of online shoppers worldwide found delivery speed to be important last year. The BRIC countries rank the highest in share of online shoppers who would pay more for faster delivery. In response to this demand, online retailers attempt to offer express delivery options, such as same day and next day delivery. This leads to increased investment and intensified competition among the merchants and logistics providers. In China, the two largest E-Commerce companies, Alibaba and JD.com compete in covering the largest number of cities with same day delivery. Meanwhile, US-based Amazon.com expanded its one-hour delivery service to London in summer 2015, with further cities in the UK and perhaps in Europe to be covered later this year.
Another interesting finding of the report is that while home delivery is still the leading B2C E-Commerce delivery option in many countries, the popularity of alternative delivery methods, such as click and collect, is growing. In Sweden, close to half of online shoppers preferred to pick up their online orders from the post office or another location, rather than have these orders delivered to their home, as of early 2015. Another example is Argentina, where pick up at the point of sale was the second leading delivery method used by online shoppers last year.
