The healthy growth of e-commerce
The digital revolution has a massive impact on the healthcare sector: The sector is dominated by businesses, and consumers are gaining an ever-increasing amount of control. This transition has opened up some great opportunities. E-commerce sales in healthcare are expected to grow by 38% until 2021. Because our business and consumer networks are seamlessly integrated, we can always offer the best solutions.
The greying population is putting a great deal of pressure on the healthcare sector. This requires smarter distribution of products such as medical aids for self-care and home care. DHL eCommerce delivers to patients at their home, saving them a trip to the drugstore.
