E-commerce has not had a busier week in Dutch history, but Sendcloud does not identify any significant problems with parcel carriers. Black Friday was busier than ever, but Cyber Monday beat everything.
The people from Brabant published figures this afternoon about the parcel volumes that they saw going towards the parcel deliverers in recent days. There are 23,000 stores that sell logistics software from Sendcloud and the company makes its statements based on that data.
No less than 134 percent more packages were sent on Black Friday than on a normal day in 2021. Last Monday, however, definitely took the cake. The peak was then 260 percent higher than on a normal day because many online stores only process their orders after the weekend. That’s even more than the 242 percent previously forecast.
The immense volumes are not entirely surprising. Currence, which is about pin and iDeal payments, has a statement. This states that compared to two years ago, debit card payments decreased by five to twenty percent in the week before Black Friday. The bargain fest takes place more in online stores and less at physical retailers. In the same week, 45 percent more was paid with iDeal.
Despite the crowds, Sendcloud sees no delivery problems. “Web shops and carriers were better prepared than ever this year. After the chaos last year, parcel services have been fully committed to expanding their capacity by investing in new distribution centers and a larger fleet. Online stores have also learned from last year and have spread discounts over several days this year to spread the crowds. That is bearing fruit, because for the time being we do not see any delays,” said Rob van den Heuvel, CEO and co-founder.
The company is also active in Belgium, Germany, Austria, Italy and Spain. In Germany, the number of parcels increased by 225 percent during Cyber Monday and in France a whopping 305 percent more parcels were sent. In Spain, parcel carriers were working overtime. Last Monday no less than 392 percent more shipments went through the belt.
