Special Issue Information
Dear Colleagues,
In today's global economy with global consumers, e-commerce is a critical component of a successful business strategy for business development and expansion. The continuing growth of e-commerce during COVID-19 has intensified rivalries among online businesses and has permanently transformed consumer behavior. The tendency has now accelerated the digitalization of the economy by growing the importance of e-commerce and transferring a huge number of consumers online, a trend that will continue to develop, eventually leading to a future in which at least 90% of purchases will be made online. Small- and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) and startups are now in direct competition with larger corporations who have gained from having their own internet shop during the COVID-19 pandemic. While businesses are under growing pressure to adopt new technology due to rising consumer expectations, famous online purchasing platforms such as Amazon and other major corporations have raised the bar for what consumers of all ages should expect from their experiences. It shows the importance of developing and aiming the future direction toward e-commerce. The trend has put tremendous pressure on businesses and is creating new chances for those businesses to compete not just locally, but also worldwide.
For e-commerce to succeed, business efficiency at all operational levels is essential and the e-supply chain is absolutely indispensable. The management of the supply chain is crucial to e-commerce. In e-commerce, supply chain management focuses on obtaining raw materials, producing the correct product at the right time, and distributing it. Supply and demand management, inventory control, order input, order management, distribution, and client delivery are all included. An efficient e-supply chain can maximize the profit brought by e-commerce and boost worldwide e-commerce development.
This Special Issue of Economies has created a chance for all academies to further discuss the topics regarding e-commerce and e-supply chain management. We welcome articles that highlight novel, excellent research on the formation and management of e-commerce and e-supply chain management. We take into consideration contributions that present fresh and rigorous techniques to address the issues originating from regional growth, as well as new research challenges and concepts in e-commerce and e-supply chain development. Papers may use a variety of research techniques, such as case studies, theoretical inquiry, empirical investigations with data analysis, and data-driven strategies. It is believed that a digital generation has come and more possibilities are waiting to be discovered. A huge contribution will be shown by the research results.
