The science of shipping with Pacejet

First-hand experience with residential freight delivery

Insider, Articles

We don't often write about our own experiences with shipping, but I had a recent experience with Estes and their subsidiary, Estes Forwarding Worldwide (EFW). This all started with a 10-year old's fervent desire for a basketball hoop.

We live in a suburban neighborhood, and I would guess that about 10% of all homes have a basketball hoop. That fact along with the fact that our neighborhood park had a basketball hoop did not deter my son from begging and pleading for a basketball hoop of his very own. This led me to adventures in e-commerce, searching for the best deal, which we discovered to be Walmart. I never really gave much thought to the shipping of the hoop, as I figured they would use FedEX or UPS. But I underestimated the sheer size and weight of the item.

How Amazon is shaping customer expectations on a global scale

Tips and Tricks, Strategy, Amazon

Retail giant Amazon is consistently raising the bar for purchasing products online. As they continue to raise expectations, customers have come to expect the same level of service from every online store. This increase in customer expectations is now known as the “Amazon effect.”

Thanks to Amazon, customers take ordering online for granted. They’ve set a new standard where convenience and consistency is assumed, no matter where customers buy from. Now, online stores will always be compared to the streamlined processes they know and value from Amazon.

Customers demand a fast, personalized and friction-less buying experience, but this of course raises some serious challenges for ecommerce stores wanting to compete.

Let’s explore a few of these expectations and how your business can fight back.
