DHL Business Live: Exporting Fashion

On Tuesday 20 September 2016, DHL hosted DHL Business Live at London Fashion Week in Soho to discuss the topic ‘Exporting Fashion’.

The event included a panel discussion led by luxury and fashion expert Pia Stanchina, featuring Clara Mercer from the British Fashion Council, Vanessa Shaboo from Attribute Shoes, and DHL Express UK Director of E-Commerce Abi Brodie.

Tips included making sure your online and offline channels work together, localising your website, and making duties costs clear to customers.

Mobile commerce trends in Europe

According to research from PayPal, mobile commerce is expected to increase strongly across Europe, but usage varies from country to country. Last year, 53 per cent of online shoppers in Turkey made a purchase via a smartphone, whilst in the Netherlands the share was much lower.

In addition, research from RetailMeNot found that Europeans were expected to spend around €45 billion via mobile in 2015 – an increase of 88 per cent on the previous year.

Mature e-commerce markets include the UK and Germany, whilst Greece and Hungary are still developing.
