SEKO Logistics is launching an eCommerce division, which they liken to “pressing the easy button” for brands seeking help with the logistics of their business. More companies like SEKO are getting into this area as navigating supply chain issues continues to be a challenge any eCommerce business has to face.  

SEKO Logistics is leveraging the advantages of their early entry into the global ecommerce market with the launch of a new SEKO Ecommerce business unit to grow their international cross border shipping, global fulfillment, heavyweight last mile, and returns and recommerce solutions into a multibillion dollar-plus business by 2025.

The global ecommerce market grew by 24% in 2020, producing market sales revenues of $4.2 trillion. Another year of record growth in 2021 is expected to boost sales to nearer $4.9 trillion. The launch of SEKO Ecommerce reflects the rise of Direct to Consumer (DTC) brands selling through their own channels utilizing platforms such as Shopify. SEKO has pre-built integrations to all major ecommerce platforms, including Shopify, Magento, Commerce Cloud and Demandware, allowing faster onboarding and frictionless implementations to enable accelerated global growth for clients. Existing clients include digitally native direct to consumer brands, retailers pivoting to ecommerce, marketplaces, merchants, ecommerce technology partners and more within the growing and diverse ecommerce market.

SEKO Ecommerce expects rapid growth by working with brands selling through multiple channels and marketplaces, including Alibaba, Amazon, eBay, Tmall, Walmart and more as it continues to build its reputation as the global logistics provider that connects ecommerce to the primary supply chain.

Now accounting for 40% of SEKO Logistics’ annual revenues, SEKO’s ecommerce operation has more than doubled in size in the last 12 months as online consumer purchases accelerated during the COVID lockdown. This growth has been boosted by SEKO’s ability to offer fast ‘plug and play’ solutions for retail brands entering the ecommerce market for the first time, as well as digitally native brands and start-ups and existing online merchants targeting rapid cross border growth.

The new business unit is led by David Emerson, Senior Vice President of SEKO Ecommerce. He joined SEKO in 2003 as a partner at SEKO United Kingdom. He was Vice President of Sales-EMEA, responsible for expanding SEKO’s footprint between Europe, Asia and the Americas, before accepting this new global role.
