Retail sales naturally plummeted during the first few months of the pandemic, but extended lockdowns saw surges in consumer spending and a massive increase in online shopping. COVID-19 still has a tight grip on the world, and with lockdowns still in place in many countries, the trend in online shopping looks set to continue for the foreseeable future.
During these unprecedented times, there has been a significant rise in the popularity of third-party logistics (3PL) in the global retail sector. Retail businesses are taking advantage of 3PL services to maximise efficiency, improve profitability and deliver on customer service promises. Companies in the fashion industry took a beating during the pandemic; however, it’s business as usual for many fashion retailers, with some emerging stronger than ever. The fashion industry is a very lucrative market, and competition is fierce, which drives companies to find ways to boost their fulfilment process and elevate the customers delivery experience. Avion International Freight Forwarders have answered the demand by increasing our online presence and delivering 3PL services that are reliable and affordable.
Retail companies selling footwear, athletic wear, high fashion and designer fashion rely on 3PL companies to streamline their operations to remain competitive.

Avions Point of Difference.
3PL services are a standard offering for many logistics companies, but 3PL services that exceed expectations across the entire supply chain require significant expertise. Reputations rely on promises kept, and the ability to deliver on your promises can make or break your business. At Avion, we take the time to assess your requirements and thoroughly investigate your supply chain’s integrity. We develop a fully personalised 3PL solution according to your business needs, brand and location. Avions promise to deliver customer service excellence, and superior 3PL services is what sets us apart from the rest.
Despite rapid e-commerce growth and freight networks operating under significant pressure, logistics companies like Avion International set themselves apart with flexible 3PL solutions that promote the flowing global supply chain. The e-commerce market and retailers are the winners of the pandemic despite the economic downturn and devastating lockdowns. 2021 looks set to dish up some fresh challenges with the distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine, which promises to be “the mission of the century”, according to chief executive Alexandre de Juniac of the International Air Transport Association (IATA). Nevertheless, the logistics industry is ready to step up to the plate.
