E-commerce in Europe creates hundreds of thousands new jobs – thanks to e-fulfilment
Online sales in Europe have been growing very strong during the last 3 years and along with it, created a great amount of new jobs to process the mass of internet orders in distribution centres across the continent. This affected not only strong and traditional economies in Western Europe, but especially countries in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE).
The rise of the Polish e-fulfilment market
CEE markets (Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary) are above average growth markets in e-fulfilment – at the expense of Western European countries. According to a survey of Prologis Research∗, this is due to great results in the measured factors, overall in “labour availability” and “cost of labour” below:
Poland ranked as a top-3 country across multiple metrics, with a maturing market. The strategic geographical location in the heart of Europe where Western and Eastern values meet, creates an ideal opportunity for business development.
This logistics market has grown notably since Poland entered the EU and opened its national borders, shared with Germany, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Lithuania, Belarus, Ukraine and Russia, providing wide trade opportunities. Poland’s ports, over 400km of coastline and a direct freight train connection China-Warsaw, enhance its trading opportunities.
Finally, with a domestic consumer market of 38.5 million in population and the country which is economically stable and highly developed, Poland has become a must for most international online traders.
