Data from Parcel Perform’s community and insights platform, Parcel Monitor, have revealed the growth of the US e-commerce market.

This trend has continued, as observed from a 43% rise in e-commerce volumes during the same period last year. The country’s cross-border e-commerce market also shows excellent potential, with 23.9% of its international shipments originating from Europe in 2021, from 19% in 2020.
