The popularity of online retail has also seen an increasing proportion of e-commerce orders accounted for by cross-border sales.
Research has suggested that the proportion of consumers worldwide buying from traders in other countries grew by more than a fifth during the first six months of 2020, as the global pandemic with lockdowns around the globe have caused buyers to go online and take advantage of greater choice and more competitive prices.
The way e-commerce businesses sell goods also continues to change.
As well as having their own web shops, retailers increasingly use online marketplaces and platforms to increase the profile of their products and generate extra orders.
Managing the sale and delivery of goods sold on different channels is, of course, a challenge in itself.
However, as part of one of the world's biggest mail and parcels operators, Spring has created a range of systems and solutions to help retailers of all sizes ship to overseas shoppers.
