Oct 24, 2013 (Thu): Consumers around the world are turning to ecommerce solutions for their holiday shopping. eCommerce is thriving globally at three to four times the rate of traditional retail buying in brick-and-mortar stores, FedEx says.
FedEx expects more than 85 million shipments to move through its global networks during the busiest week of the year, December 1 – 7. According to FedEx, its 11 per cent year-over-year increase will be driven primarily by online retailers.
