UK is world leader in e-commerce

According to the Freight Transport Association’s (FTA) latest research supported by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), the UK leads the world in e-commerce with growth coming from increased frequency of online purchasing. 

The research identified that 27 per cent of consumers are now shopping online on a weekly basis and predicts that tablets and smart phones will account for 25 per cent of online retail sales by 2017.
