UAE E-Commerce Logistics Market Overview

Challenges in UAE E-Commerce Sector: One of the reasons behind the relatively slow uptake of e-commerce in the country is the last mile logistics complexities. Same day delivery expectations demand a lot from e-commerce companies and due to infrastructure difficulties like the absence of street addresses and lack of penetration of courier services, delivery speeds get affected. Moreover, around 60% of the total logistic cost is spent on Last Mile Deliveries in UAE. Timely scheduling is crucial for effective deliveries as a customer’s unavailability to receive package despite multiple attempts, leads to increase in the operational costs. Growing expectations of replacement or refund of online orders is a challenge e-commerce companies need to tackle. Players should lay emphasis on strengthening reverse logistics channels, keeping a scope for managing incoming inventory at the fulfillment centre(s)/warehouses and quicker replacements.

Impact of COVID-19 on UAE E-Commerce Logistics Market: The UAE was one of the top-performing economies globally before the sudden outbreak of the new novel coronavirus in China. However, the pandemic has positively impacted the growth of e-commerce market in UAE. Digitalization was already becoming an emerging trend in the UAE, the onset of COVID-19 acted as a catalyst and accelerated the call to action. China has become a significant trade partner of the UAE amidst this global lockdown.

Revenues for brick and mortar retailers have also declined dramatically in recent months, prompting many stores to shift or expand their presence online, while also quickly building out their ability to process cashless and contactless payments. A prominent example includes the Dubai Mall’s partnership with Noon to create a virtual store to continue to engage with customers online. With increased customer use of various online channels, vertical and horizontal e-commerce platforms across certain categories – pharmacies, groceries, essentials, and many more – have witnessed a significant surge in sales. The region’s biggest online baby shop, Mumzworld, for instance, reported an 800% growth in demand from January to March alone. Other e-commerce platforms such as Amazon and Noon have also reported a considerable rise in e-commerce sales.
