In our new Country Deep-Dive series, we provide relevant market insights and take a closer look at the current e-commerce trends in different parts of the world. We also give an overview of the supply chain services we offer for e-commerce, retail and omnichannel solutions.
Country Deep-Dive USA
With around 263 million digital shoppers across the country, the US has solidified its position as the second largest global online market after China. Between 2020 and 2021, e-commerce sales in the US increased by 16.1%, representing a revenue of roughly $768 billion.
Country Deep-Dive UK
The UK's exit from the European single market and customs union has changed its trading relationships overnight. Despite additional shipping complexities due to Brexit, cross-border e-commerce trade increased by 38% in the years 2019 to 2021 to £27 billion. This makes the UK the largest source of cross-border e-commerce trade in Europe.
Country Deep-Dive Italy
Italy has a young but fast-growing e-commerce market with a strong potential. Between 2017 and 2020, the value of the B2C market increased by almost 40% and a record growth of 22% was reported between 2020 and 2021. The total revenue of the B2C market accounted for 39.4 billion euros in 2021, and forecasts for 2025 show a potential market growth of 100 billion euros.
Country Deep-Dive Spain
Spain stands out worldwide for its efficient transport network and its privileged location in Southern Europe, where the main freight transport routes interconnect. Thanks to this strategic location, 70 million potential customers in Spain, Portugal and the South of France can be reached within 24 hours.
Country Deep-Dive Turkey
Although the Turkish economy has many factors, its export strength and young population appear to be two key aspects contributing to its growth. Turkey is a leading trading partner for both Europe and MENA (Middle East and North Africa) countries. Located at the crossroads of Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Africa, Turkey has long been considered an extremely important strategic hub for global trade and international shipments.

With a GDP of €574 billion, Poland is the largest economy in Central-Eastern Europe and the sixth largest economy in the European Union. Its strategic location on the route between Western and Eastern Europe determines the country's role as a regional hub for transport and trade. This makes it possible to reach over 115 million potential customers in Central and Eastern Europe within 48 hours.
