The 2020 Click, Ship & Return Report is Here




Since COVID-19 hit, retailers have struggled with various areas of order processing from issues with sourcing products to new cleanliness restrictions and safety protocols implemented to help reduce the spread of the coronavirus. But one pain point sticks out: fulfillment.

Online sales in Q2 2020 have increased 44.4% year over year, and shipping carriers FedEx and UPS reported package volume increasing more than 50% in the same quarter. And retailers are responding by adjusting their fulfillment practices.

Many have added curbside pickup and shipping orders from stores, while others have looked at alternative ways to fulfill online orders beyond the usual shipping carriers. Our real-world test reveals that some retailers are still struggling with fulfillment, while others have hit the ground running.

The just-released 2020 Click, Ship & Return Report reveals new insights into the fulfillment practices of online retailers.
