The retail industry is evolving at an unprecedented rate, adjusting and adapting to ever-changing consumer shopping behaviors. Demand for instant gratification is changing the way retailers are shipping deliveries, and the convenience of same-day and overnight delivery options continue to become more attractive. With rising customer expectations around speed and convenience, the bar continues to rise for retail businesses as they try to offer customers the optimum shopping experience.
The consumer landscape in the Middle East has seen major shifts over the past months. The demand for premium and instant services is constantly on the rise, and recent research has shown that 37% of UAE shoppers would switch to a different retailer if there was a delay in completing their online orders. It is important for retail businesses to promptly make changes to their shipping options and services.
Consumer preferences and needs
The shifts in consumer expectations and behaviors pose as challenges to retailers in the region. Every customer’s unique lifestyle dictates specific wants and needs. With convenience and speed in mind, the promises of next-day delivery have increasingly come into the spotlight. Whether shoppers make price, time, or value-for-money oriented decisions, delivery and shipping options now carry varying combinations of delivery attributes to cater to everyone’s preferences.
