Pacejet is gearing up to return to IRCE this June in Chicago after a great show last year. IRCE @ RetailX brings e-commerce businesses, retailers, and the technology together, highlighting all the ways a business can thrive in the growing digital age. We are excited to sponsor this event again this year and hope to meet some new partners and friends along the way.
Amazon has come a long way since their birth in 1994, when they first began as a humble e-commerce store selling just books, before they grew into the online retail giant they are today. Many are fascinated with the level of their success, while businesses are wary of the trail they are blazing as they try to keep up with the changing landscape.
So, how does Amazon manage to stay on top? And more importantly, how can you compete and leverage their success simultaneously?
As a consumer, talking about holiday and year-end shipping in October might seem a bit strange but it’s definitely time to start thinking about it if your business ships. If this year is anything like 2017, we can expect that online sales will once again grow by double-digits.
According to Adobe Analytics, the combined totals from Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday were $7.9 billion in online sales, which was up 17.9% from the previous year. Given the importance of the holiday season for businesses around the world, what can you do to get your business prepared and to make sure you remain competitive?
Retail is an ever-changing and growing industry. As giants like Amazon control more and more of consumer online shopping, it's important for other retailers to remain competitive in their niche.
Pacejet reached out to some current customers, as well as prospective customers, and asked them to provide insight into their shipping patterns and challenges. Through our recent survey, we were able to see common retail practices and, in turn, identify ways to help retailers across globe apply the science of shippingTM and learn how to improve their shipping process. This is a strategy and growth framework built to help businesses survive and thrive in the 21st century. Take a look at some of our findings.
