CANADA: Post & Parcel: “Traditionally, mass merchants and fashion retailers have generated the bulk of e-commerce parcel growth,” said Canada Post. “But as Canadians transition from being first-time to frequent shoppers and eventually hyper shoppers (11+ times annually) they are branching out and buying different kinds of items online. Here, the data points to the emergence of three new e-commerce growth sectors: Toys/Hobbies (21%) e-commerce parcel volume growth; Office Supplies (15%) and Sporting Goods (11%).” Commenting on the data, Danielle Doiron, Director of Parcel Market Development, Canada Post, said: “As Canada Post delivers two out of every three parcels we’re committed to supporting retailers to help them make the most of the online opportunity. To do this, we offer not only convenience-based delivery solutions, like FlexDelivery, but relevant research to help them better understand and maximize the current e-commerce growth opportunity.” As Post&Parcel reported last Wednesday, Canada Post has just launched a new concept drive-thru and parcel pick-up store in Richmond Hill, Ontario, which is focused on catering to the needs of the online shopper.
