For a number of reasons, the e-commerce logistics market is expected to grow slowly. Price is a major factor in e-commerce logistics services as it has to be a fair price keeping in mind the consumer's capability. The fuel prices and manpower needed are highly price sensitive. If the price is too high, it may result in the abandonment of the basket. However, it can be overcome by offering discounts and price schemes to consumers so they do not feel the burden of the price. The delay in shipping and delivery causes anxiety to consumers as they are highly impatient to receive their orders as soon as possible. In some cases, the consumer is lured into paying a higher price for quick delivery. It is a messy job to handle and process the returns by the logistics provider as brands do not want to discourage the buying habits of the consumers and it affects the brand image of the product. For this, mastering the process and at the same time thinking of cost-effective solutions is of utmost importance. Growing environmental concerns have created challenges for the packing of these products for transit and adaptability to possible returns. Transportation services lead the market growth as it is essential for logistics service providers, and warehousing and other services fall under optional services if they wish to provide them. The integration of e-commerce logistics with transportation management software (TMS) has boosted the e-commerce logistics market's growth. TMS aids in planning deliveries across the supply chain. Transportation plays an important role in successful e-commerce transactions. It offers scheduled delivery with flexibility, tracking and doorstep delivery. This helps online retailer’s gain customer confidence by providing efficient services and on-time delivery that further accelerate e-commerce sales and logistics. Domestic e-commerce logistics has gained prominence in the industry with the rise in home delivery services and the growth of online shopping. Consumers are inclined towards quick and door-step deliveries for even their basic needs like groceries, medicines, and other household necessities. The busy consumer lifestyle where both partners are working mostly prefers online shopping rather than wasting time hopping from store to store to buy different products. Online retailers have made it effective to purchase all their needs from a single platform, which saves a lot of time for consumers. This is a major factor in increasing domestic logistics. Domestic e-commerce unveils a bucket of opportunities for small enterprises and individuals involved in trade, reducing the price of purchases and expanding their sales in developed and developing countries. This enhances the domestic e-commerce logistics market.
