Global E-Commerce Delivery Report 2012 Samples RESEARCH ON INTERNATIONAL MARKETS We deliver the facts – you make the decisions Brazilian online retailer B2W suffered high losses due to delivery delays in the 12 months to March 2012 and is improving its delivery system. Brazil: Delivery News about B2W, June 2012  B2W, a Brazil-based online retailer that owns eight E-Commerce websites selling numerous products from theater tickets to washing machines, experienced a net loss of USD 76.6 million in the 12 months to March 2012 mainly due to delivery delays.  As consumer spending and online retail increased strongly in Brazil, logistics at B2W was not able to handle the surge and, as a result, failed to deliver and fulfill orders on time.  The delays became so bad that the company had to suspend sales twice, because official institutions had received thousand of complaints about B2W.  At the same time, B2W’s competitors offered lower prices and on- time delivery while the number of competitors increased as well, resulting in a customer loss for B2W.  After this, the company aims at improving its delivery system, for which it uses private services and Brazil’s national postal system, to make it more reliable. To make deliveries faster and more reliable, B2W announced its investment in new distribution centers in May 2012. Additionally, new equipment was installed in the existing distribution centers has helped shorten delivery times.
