Benelux 2020: Ecommerce Region Report

Download the Benelux 2020 Ecommerce Region Report for an in-depth analysis of one of Europe’s most important B2C ecommerce markets. With in-depth analysis of Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands, the report also considers how the Benelux ecommerce sector affects retail in the rest of Europe.

The Benelux region’s ecommerce sector is especially intriguing for a number of reasons. In itself, the region represents a sophisticated Northern European market. In great part because of its internationally important ports, most notably Rotterdam, it’s also an area that’s key to wider European ecommerce, an area central to logistics across the whole continent. It’s a region where, even within individual countries, retailers have to tackle nuances around customer behaviour because, for example, consumers speak different languages.

As we also explore in the report, Benelux as a whole may well, at least in the longer term, benefit from Brexit. On a practical level, the report will arm retailers that want to sell in Benelux with the information they need to get started.
