Share Article

The global boom in online shopping has resulted in record numbers of parcels being tracked via Skillweb’s Houndit Enterprise system during December. The end-to-end item tracking solution has experienced a 40 per cent surge in parcels volumes in the build up to Christmas, compared to a similar period last year, reflecting the increase in ecommerce sales as consumers switch from the high street to the Internet.
