The Ecommerce News Roundup – 06 June 2022

Another week has gone by and there’s more e-commerce news to share with you all.

But before we do, it’s back to work for the last half of the Summer term – and judging by the huge number of unfortunate people stuck abroad after the holidays, it seems that demand remains high – but as an economy, we are still struggling to get supply chains and employment back to normal.

In a misplaced feeling of nationalist exceptionalism, I thought this was just a British problem but twitter reported that Schipol had the same challenges….

Anyway, enjoy this week’s pull of the latest news from all things digital, e-commerce & tech.
