Another significant trend has been the increase sales in small delivery vans up 20%, larger delivery vans up 63% and small trucks (3.5 to 8 tonnes) up 40%.
Bill Gillespie is the Vice President – Brand and Franchise Development for Hino trucks Australia whose overall sales are up 50%
So the online business in Australia as a percentage of retail went from 13 per cent to something in the range of 24 per cent of all retail. So that’s almost a doubling of last mile delivery business.
So what that’s made, of course, is that that whole logistics work has been shifted and turned upside down in a very short space of time. So, yeah, I think big shifts and big environmental, economic and social shifts, that will mean this is the way the world’s going to be from now on in. I would suspect.
