Moody's reported that over the next five years, ecommerce is expected to account for over 1/4 of all retail sales. Waitrose announced it would sell 30 products through the Royal Mail online shop on China’s Tmall. The UK Department for International Trade (DIT) launched its ‘Tech for Growth’ Programme to support future trading opportunities between the UK and emerging economies and the first physical Amazon Fresh grocery store opened in LA.

We're worn out just thinking about all that ecommerce potential!
