What happens when every retailer and logistics business is a cross-border e-commerce parcel carrier?
Amazon is poised to become the largest U.S. parcel delivery carrier this year. A year ago, Walmart GoLocal was launched, and American Eagle Outfitters acquired AirTerra. Target acquired Shipt in 2017.
Today, technology allows retailers and enables existing logistics providers to take control of e-commerce parcel delivery instead of relying on traditional shipping solutions. Specifically, that’s happening through (1) new logistics infrastructure companies providing APIs (application programming interfaces); (2) new last mile carriers that enable better, cost-effective parcel delivery options; and (3) better data processing and artificial intelligence that removes the complexity of managing parcel delivery networks.
