The demands for e-commerce are very different from traditional sales channels and the standard traditional warehouses. When it comes to running an online shop or marketplace, e-commerce logistics refers to the procedures involved in keeping and delivering goods, which include inventory management as well as the selecting, packaging, and shipping of online orders. With millions of parcels being sent throughout the nation on any given day, it is critical that mechanisms be in place to keep them on track and ensure that they are delivered to the correct location in a reasonable amount of time. E-commerce logistics begins with the movement of goods from the manufacturer and continues until the merchandise reaches the final destination of the end consumer. Digital fulfilment is one of the most important components of e-commerce logistics. In Europe, the e-commerce market has grown rapidly in the last few years. Also, Europe is home to several major e-commerce logistics companies that operate in many countries. These players are very interesting for online retailers that sell cross-border. Europeans shop mostly within their own region. 88% of online purchases made by Europeans were mainly from national sellers. In a ranking of top e-commerce retailers in Europe, most of the retailers originated from Germany, France, and the UK. According to the report titled, "Europe E-Commerce Logistics Market Research Report, 2027", published by Actual Market research, the market was valued at around USD 77 billion in 2021. Europe is considered to have the potential to obtain higher growth in terms of revenue share during the upcoming timeframe. By 2021, the proportion of EU households with internet access had risen to 92%, up from 72% in 2011.Based on the obtained data, overall internet penetration in Europe in 2021 was calculated to be nearly 87%. In addition to that, smartphones make up the primary component of the European mobile phone market, with a 78%smartphone penetration rate in Europe in the same year. As of April 2021, Amazon appeared as the leading online marketplace in Europe, registering approximately 981 million monthly visits. With almost 367 million visits, eBay ranked second most popular, with almost 367 million visits, followed in third place by the Polish e-commerce site Allegro, which attracted close to 185 million visits. The European e-commerce logistics market is divided into several major countries, including Germany, the United Kingdom, France, the Netherlands, Spain, Italy, and Russia. Among these countries, the UK is estimated to lead the market during the forecast period. The UK is an island nation separated physically and politically from mainland Europe by the twin barriers of the Channel and Brexit. The UK is nonetheless the continent’s e-commerce leader. Its consumers are educated shoppers, with high potential for quality and service from both domestic and international retailers, and its online sales revenue outranks the combined scale of its two closest continental rivals, Germany and France. Logistics leaders are launching new services to connect the UK with mainland Europe and help businesses of all sides negotiate shifting border processes, fees, and transport disruption. One World Express recently announced a new platform called Ship2world in partnership with supply chain technology specialist Orange Connex. The platform allows merchants to access hundreds of shipping options and optimise routes, with competitive pricing for UK merchants on outbound shipping to the US, Canada, Australia, and Germany. According to the report, the European market is segmented into two operational areas, including international and domestic. Among these types, the domestic e-commerce logistics market is anticipated to acquire a larger portion of the market during the forecast period. Increasing e-commerce penetration across the region is anticipated to fuel the market growth for domestic e-commerce. Further, the market is segmented into various service types, including warehousing, transportation, return and inventory management. Among these types, the transportation segment leads the market with more than 60% in 2021, which is expected to continue the growth in the upcoming timeframe. Further, the market is segregated into four basic transportation modes, including road, rail, air, and sea. Among these types, the road transportation segment is expected to acquire the highest market share during the forecast period. COVID-19 impact In 2020, a noticeable spike in online shopping habits has been recorded across Europe, with many consumers from different countries stating that they had started e-shopping more due to the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
