E-commerce, omni-channel retail, and EU policy

E-commerce is a major, sometimes disruptive, driver of change in the world of retail and wholesale, and in that of the consumer. It offers major new opportunities in many sorts of ways for businesses which serve consumers. Consumers themselves, with their increased use of the computer and of mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones, are changing dramatically in terms of behaviour and expectations as shoppers. For traders, e-commerce offers new ways to interact with their customers and to serve them through different channels and platforms.
