Consumers’ changing needsThe changing needs and demands of consumers creates a new set of challenges to the supply chain and retailers. Due to changing needs, new supply chain and fulfillment solutions will need to be created to ensure customer satisfaction and returning customers.
Online shopping via mobile devicesThere is a growing trend of consumers turning to their mobile devices for their online shopping. Also, their mobile devices are used as their primary method for online shopping. In 2014, 30% of Canadians indicated that they use their mobile devices when shopping online. This statistic will most likely increase as more consumers are turning to e-commerce. Retailers are recognizing this and view this as an opportunity to provide their shoppers with an improved shopping experience. As technology progresses, this offers an improved shopping experience to consumers via their mobile devices.

Also, consumers have the ability to track their product and are informed where their product is located at all times when being shipped. Lastly, e-commerce provides consumers the convenience of never leaving the comfort of their homes and their product delivered to their doorstep. Retailers are recognizing the popularity of online shopping and are looking to improve their online shopping experience for consumers.
