How Peak Season Affected E-Commerce Deliveries in Germany and the UK?
Peak season (Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and Christmas) in Europe is coming up! The peak season has always been characterized by the high volume of e-commerce orders and deliveries. A survey by Deloitte in 2019 suggested that Europeans had plans to spend at least 28% of their total holiday budget on gifts – the UK had an estimated holiday spending of €639 per person while Germany had an estimated holiday spending of €487 per person.
Economically, the UK is the sixth-largest economy in the world with $2.83 trillion GDP and ranked as Europe’s biggest B2C e-commerce market in 2019.
In comparison, Germany is known for holding the largest and strongest economy in Europe. On a global scale, it is the fourth-largest economy with $4 trillion GDP and ranked as Europe’s third-biggest online market in 2019.
With that in mind, Parcel Monitor did a comparison study between these economic powerhouses to examine how logistics players in these countries fared against the huge e-commerce orders during peak season.
