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. Order in the morning, have your shipment by the end of the day, or even within a couple of hours. The progress to nationwide same day is inevitable as consumer demand drives the need for more and more urgent delivery.
