The greatest threat to the continued growth of ecommerce is the spiraling cost of shipping.

eCommerce Brands Grapple with Soaring Shipping Costs and Customer Expectations

The last leg of the delivery journey is a large cost for eCommerce brands. Gas for delivery trucks, paying workers, and vehicle maintenance all add up. Carriers pass those costs onto brands. When consumers want fast and free shipping, it adds more challenges and costs to eCommerce brands.

eCommerce brands can plan ahead to make sure they deliver orders on time without breaking the bank.

How eCommerce Brands Can Get Costs Under Control

Customers want free shipping, but how do retailers balance the consumer demand for free shipping with the seemingly never-ending increases in parcel delivery costs from national
carriers?

“I challenge brands to be careful about apples-to-apples last mile delivery pricing. Beware of the lack of transparency in the industry about surcharges.”
