The Ecommerce News Roundup – 25 January 2021

The best news so far seems to be that we are nicely over this current peak in infections and this is even beginning to show up in hospitalisations, and the vaccination programme is going impressively well despite the media trying to find endless flaws and bad news stories.The government finally seem to be getting a grip on trying to stop people flying into the country willy nilly… so all going in the right direction. And in a final plus  – there is distinctly more daylight around!

Meanwhile the ecommerce good news stories keep rolling in – see below for the latest batch and as always, do get in touch, even if it is just for a quick chat and a catch up.
