E-commerce will emerge as the winner from the Corona crisis. A statement that is often read recently. Sounds logical regarding shutdown and social distancing. But it's not that simple after all.
According to the German E-Commerce and Mail Order Association (bevh), e-commerce is also suffering from the corona pandemic. In March 2020, sales were almost 20 percent below the previous year's level. Shopping morale is generally poor in times of crisis. This does not leave e-commerce unaffected.
Although the proportion of parcels sent within a few weeks between mid-March and early April rose by 90 percent, this does not allow any valid conclusions to be drawn. And it is precisely the delivery difficulties that have arisen as a result that prove once again that logistics is the Achilles' heel of e-commerce. Nevertheless, there are e-commerce winners from the crisis, as well as high losses in industries that are currently having a particularly hard time.
The shop demise in German city centres is further aggravated by the Corona crisis. Many people shy away from going into a shop even after loosening up. For many businesses, e-commerce is an opportunity to participate in retail in the long term. What's more, e-commerce now offers the chance to make up for long missed opportunities in terms of digitalisation. Not only participate, but help shape it! Many good strategies and best practice examples are there.
