According to eMarketer, global consumer spending through e-commerce is expected to hit $1.5tr in 2014, and is being driven by growth in emerging markets. This creates significant opportunity for U.S.-based retailers that are prepared to sell internationally.
“Managing logistics is one of the biggest challenges for e-tailers expanding overseas because international shipping has been expensive and often complicated, hit by delivery delays, customs hold-ups and unexpected additional charges,” said Ted Tanner, vice president of global solutions, Newgistics. “As a result, many U.S.-based e-tailers have been reluctant to target overseas customers, but we’re helping to change that. Our mission is to help retailers break down the barriers to growth in e-commerce and our new international delivery service gives them a fast, cost-effective solution to the challenge of international home delivery.”
