Retailers are facing challenges in logistics more than ever before as Covid-19 has propelled businesses online at an accelerated rate.

The last year has been one of upheaval for the eCommerce industry, with uncertainty and disruption caused by the pandemic and the impact of Brexit. For retailers it was a mixed bag, they experienced the dramatic increase of demand as customers shifted online but also the squeeze on supply chains and the challenges of meeting such demands.
Scurri has successfully empowered its clients to supply strong customer service and reliability even during the crisis. Operational resilience and flexibility are inherent to our robust framework which enables retailers to continue to deliver value and excellent customer experiences despite obstacles such as Covid and Brexit.
Online demand is now inherently variable; retailers need the flexibility built into the architecture of their systems so that their networks and service levels are as flexible as consumer demand. A scalable infrastructure is one of the ways Scurri empowers merchants, by being able to quickly add or remove shipping resources , quickly adding a new pick and pack station, warehouse or enabling them to ship from store.
The eCommerce delivery experience is extremely complicated to set up and manage, with so many different aspects that don’t work together without significant IT development and investment.
Covid-19 will continue to shape the retail landscape in a profound way. With eCommerce now accounting for a 3rd of all retail sales, meeting customer demand whilst maintaining the safety of staff and shoppers alike is more essential than ever. Technologies like Scurri play a central role in business continuity.
