Logistics services related to electronic commerce grow by 8.8%

The provision of logistics services related to e-commerce operations generated 3,100 million euros in 2022, 8.8% more than in the previous year.

According to data from the DBK Sectoral Observatory of Informa, a subsidiary of Cesce, online shopping did not experience the expected growth in the final stretch of last year. The macroeconomic situation, inflation and uncertainty have slowed down consumer demand and, consequently, the growth of online purchases in the last months of 2022.

Throughout the year, 24 million shoppers made purchases online, 2.5% more than in 2021, which means that 55% of Spaniards bought online last year.

This constant growth of electronic commerce is also boosting the business of logistics sector, at least in the part of services related to ecommerce. In this sense, the provision of storage, transport and distribution services linked to electronic commerce operations generated a turnover of 3,100 million euros in 2022.

This represents a growth of 8.8% compared to the previous year. However, this is a lower percentage than in the two previous years when, due to the effects of the pandemic, these services experienced growth of 28.9% in 2020 and 16.3% in 2021.

The growth in demand for logistics services has attracted new operators to the sector

This significant increase in demand for these logistics services in recent years has attracted new operators to the sector, especially companies specialized in last mile services. However, despite the entry of these new operators, the main logistics groups continue to have a great weight in the sector.

Only the first five companies in the logistics sector accounted for 46% of the market share in 2022. A percentage that, when it comes to the top ten companies, rose to 60%.


Evolution of logistics services

The DBK Sectoral Observatory also points out the important evolution that these last-mile delivery services are experiencing. This has also led to the growing implementation of networks of collection points, smart ticket offices and urban hubs to alleviate the problems and costs involved in driving in large cities.

The bet for sustainable mobility and the contribution to environmental respect is also fostering the development of strategies that help this purpose while facilitating deliveries to users.

The forecast is that the logistics market for electronic commerce will grow by 6% per year in 2023 and 2024

The Observatory’s forecasts suggest that the volume of business in the sector will continue this trend towards a slowdown in its growth rate during 2023 and 2024 given the situation that economic activity is going through.

With this framework, the forecasts it manages indicate that the logistics market for electronic commerce will experience growth of around 6% per year in these two years.

Test winner headphones: These ANC headphones beat even Sony from the throne

The most important things at a glance:

  • The Sennheiser Momentum 4 Wireless is our current test winner among Bluetooth headphones
  • You are currently getting the model for 268.21 euros at Amazon
  • Below you will find an excerpt from our best list of Bluetooth headphones
At the time of writing, Sony’s WH-1000XM5 is no longer our number one noise-cancelling headphone. The Sony headphones were beaten by the Sennheiser Momentum 4 Wireless.

The Momentum 4 Wireless convinces with a great, clear sound with a rich bass. As a reward, there is the top grade of 1.2, with which the Sennheiser model beats the former test winner in terms of sound. The excellent active noise suppression was also a lot of fun in the practical test. In our stress test scenario (simulated aircraft noise), the Sennheiser Momentum 4 Wireless attenuated very effectively for us. There is further praise for the excellent battery life: With the highest ANC strength, the Sennheiser Momentum 4 Wireless ran for a whopping 53 hours in our test scenario – a very strong performance. Although some headphones run longer without ANC, since the external signal processing cannot be deactivated with the Sennheiser Momentum 4 Wireless, we were not able to test this here.

A few small things bothered, for example, the ear cups can only be rotated, but not folded. But that’s complaining on a high level.

Time change from Saturday to Sunday: Drivers now face a very special danger

The ADAC advises drivers to drive with foresight and be more aware of the dangers in order to avoid serious accidents involving wildlife.

The end of “John Wick 4” explained: what comes after the action hit?

The end of “John Wick 4” probably came as a surprise to most fans. The ex-killer wins the duel against the nasty Marquis de Gramont (Bill Skarsgård) and is thus released from all duties to the Hohen Hammer. Unfortunately, he was badly injured in the shootout with his former friend and current antagonist Caine (Donnie Yen). And so, with everything settled, John Wick, bleeding heavily, sits on the steps below the Sacre Ceour Cathedral, looks up at the beautiful suns and thinks of his late wife Helen (Bridget Moynahan) before he falls dead himself. In the next scene, Winston (Ian McShane) and the Bowery King (Laurence Fishburne) stand in front of the former hitman’s grave and wonder whether he has ended up in heaven or hell.

So John Wick really does appear to be dead. And that, although it was said for a long time that there would be a fifth part. But as director Chad Stahelski has now revealed to The Hollywood Reporter, he and Keanu Reeves have only just finished the “John Wick” series. Nevertheless, they are not averse to further sequels. Unfortunately, ambiguous statements like these are standard in Hollywood. After all, you don’t want to obstruct the future of a franchise. But with Chad Stahelski’s announcement, you can be pretty sure that we won’t see a “John Wick” movie in the near future.

The post-credit sequence in the fourth part is all the more irritating. Because we see Donnie Yen’s character Caine again, how he visits his daughter. But before he can reach her, Akira (Rina Sawayama) suddenly appears. She probably wants revenge on Caine for killing her father. But before that happens, the film ends. Now, of course, one can speculate: is the scene just there to bring Caine and Akira’s stories to an end? Or is it even the cornerstone for a spin-off? An offshoot has already been confirmed that expands the “John Wick” universe.
