In recent years, Colombia has been experiencing a situation of political stability that is translating into greater economic projection. The data provided by official bodies show figures of economic growth in the country that can generate various business opportunities. One of the areas that will experience palpable growth will be logistics and last-mile distribution.
Growth of E-Commerce in Colombia
The implementation of digital technologies in Colombia has generated an accelerated growth of sales through electronic commerce. According to Asobancaria, the Colombian Banking Association, e-commerce has grown by 24% in the last 5 years and by 2021 these sales will reach 26,000 million dollars. The Colombian consumer seeks a predilection for collection points for their electronic purchases, since the terrain of certain regions of the country makes it difficult to deliver to the buyer’s door.
Logistics challenges in Colombia
Due to the difficulty that Colombia registers to be able to move around the country and also through the center of the cities, last mile logistics seems like an effective solution to solve the difficulties that may arise. In this case, the preference to pick up orders in establishments such as Mail Boxes Etc. can solve delivery problems in certain situations.
On the other hand, Colombia still has a delay in export and import shipping times compared to other countries in the area, which delays the entire logistics process. The improvement in land and air infrastructures aim to improve logistics in distance and time.
