eCommerce Growth Drives The Logistics Sector in India

According to recent reports, the eCommerce sector will be the biggest growth factor in India’s logistics industry going forward.  

ECommerce is growing at a rate of 35-40% which has led to big players increasing their eCommerce logistics departments. India’s eCommerce market is currently just over $5 billion but forecasts expect to see that grow to $300 billion in the next 15 years. Estimates also believe that by 2020, “e-tailing” will capture over 20% of the entire retail industry in India. (Source:

  • Accessibility – eCommerce business can be accessed by anyone, anytime. Reaching consumers who are interested in making a purchase, when and where they want.
  • Fulfillment Options – when it comes to order fulfillment, the options are endless; eCommerce businesses can manage their own inventory and shipments, or hire a 3PL (third party logistics) company like Shipfusion to manage the process.
