As one of the most densely populated countries in Europe and with comparatively high purchasing power per capita, the United Kingdom is an attractive sales market for online retailers. In addition, the e-commerce sector in UK is particularly strong and ranks third in the world in terms of turnover. By 2021, 93% of internet users from UK are expected to shop online, which represents the highest purchasing rate in Europe. For these reasons, expansion into the Queen’s kingdom is a worthwhile consideration. Besides an attractive market, a good logistics solution is often the decisive factor between success and failure of e-commerce businesses.
