Role of logistics in e-commerce (Online Retailer)

October 06, 2016 2449 Views

The trade publication OnlineRetailer features an interview with one of our experts, Joke Vink,  about the role of logistics in e-commerce. Joke comments that, whereas they didn’t want to have anything to do with logistics a few years ago, many large e-tailers are now taking logistics into their own hands. For example, Dutch online giant Bol.com is now consciously taking steps to insource logistics and is building its own distribution center, and a similar shift can be seen at Coolblue, which is increasingly taking care of its own delivery activities. Hence, there is a bigger focus on logistics than ever before – which is only logical, because it is a very important aspect.”
