The coronavirus has paralysed a large part of the economy and turned a huge number of Belgians into online shoppers. Over several weeks, bpost has delivered up to 500,000 parcels per day on the busiest days.
This new-found passion for e-commerce, which has created many new customers, is set to continue, with around 15% of Belgians saying they will shop online more even after the lockdown is lifted.
Among the beneficiaries of this new consumer trend, local small and medium-sized enterprises have everything needed to profit from the growing demand for online shopping. Belgians, who have been unable to leave their homes, have discovered and ordered regional products, creating new long-term development opportunities for SMEs online.
