SUMMARY

This report examines the effects of E-Commerce on the trucking sector and offers an overview of the new e-commerce and omnichannel retailing trends. 

According to this study, online shopping and the move towards omnichannel retailing is having a significant impact on retail business models as well as in distribution networks. It also provides details on the changes taking place in the retail supply chains as well as in the distribution networks. The paper maps the impacts of e-commerce on trucking operations too.

The trucking sector, the research explains, has now the opportunity to adapt to these changes and become more profitable given that the highly fragmented retail sector has also made retailers more dependable on their logistics business partners.

Concerning the trucking industry, stakeholders are still adapting to the effects of decentralized retail distribution networks, the document notes, as well as to the increasing demand for shipment and deliveries in highly populated areas.

According to this paper, motor carriers are testing various sorts of technologies and are also adapting their operations to accommodate the shorter delivery windows and quicker turnaround times that new business models are demanding.

This paper also takes a look at the opportunities and issues that the changes in the retail sector imply for the trucking industry. The increasing volume of regional and local operations, for instance, could mitigate a few of the concerns regarding quality of life and underlying issues with driver retention and health and wellness.
