e-Commerce expects Holiday Season to generate over Euro 11 b Turnover

e-Commerce is booming on a global scale. In 2014 it continued growing generating global sales worth in excess of $ 800 b – and figures are forecast to rise. What is ordered online must also be safely wrapped and shipped. According to estimates, parcel shipments will rise by more than 8% by 2019.

But by no means all the parcels reaching their customers also stay with them: in Germany alone experts estimate the number of annual returns to stand at roughly 300 million. If all the parcels shipped were lined up in a row this chain would be long enough to span the globe almost three times.
