‘Delivering Tomorrow, Today’
The retail sector has been volatile in recent years, with the financial crash having a huge influence on people’s spending, it saw many high-street stores close down. But where there is demand, there is supply too, especially online.
The supply chain continues to play a hugely important role in keeping the retail sector connected and moving, especially now there is such growth in online shopping. Next-day deliveries are also seeing a boost in usage of courier companies. In March 2017, it was found that UK shoppers had spent £1 billion in a week – this was up by 19.5% on the same month the year before. Overall retail sales were also up, with a year-on-year growth in March 2016 by 1.7%.
‘Delivering Tomorrow, Today’ will be released in 2017. If your organisation would like to contribute or feature in the programme, please contact John Haley, Head of Programmes, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
