Lets face it consumers want more choice and flexibility of how they buy their products and especially how they take delivery of those products. The internet and e-commerce stores have forever changed the face of how we can research, find, and purchase most products.
The default way to shop used to be driving to a few stores to look for specific items you were interested in purchasing. Now with the rise of e-commerce and robust e-commerce platforms like Shopify, Magento, Woo-Commerce and others it has never been easier to market and sell products virtually anywhere.
For smaller products it has not been as challenging to buy and set up shipping of the goods you have sold or purchased. However larger items like BBQ’s , picnic tables, surf boards, e-bikes, that traditionally ship on larger freight truck has remained fairly manual and cumbersome.
