How micro fulfilment is levelling the field for same day delivery

September 30, 2020

Once upon a time, delivery in 3-5 days felt like a miracle. If we were waiting on a sofa, 6-8 weeks even sounded reasonable. Now I’m tapping my nails with impatience if something takes longer than 24 hours to arrive.

The drive to online commerce, fueled by the service standards set by retail giants like Amazon, has created a demand for next day delivery all over the globe.

In major conurbations like London and Manchester, people are even starting to demand same day delivery.

Is same day delivery too expensive for me?

September 18, 2020

Over the last few years, the e-commerce market has grown to make up 15% of all retail spending worldwide, and this increasing trend is showing no signs of slowing (source). In 2020, with the pressures of the current climate (ahem, COVID), many consumers are basing their online purchasing decisions on a retailer’s delivery options. The faster it can be delivered, the more likely they are to buy it. 


In fact, 41% of consumers are willing to pay extra for same day delivery (source), especially if shipping represents less than 7-8% of the cost of their purchase (source).
