FastFact: E-Commerce Still Growing, But Not as Rapidly as Total Shipments

In the final installment of a series of factoids addressing the rise of e-commerce in furniture manufacturing and the merchant wholesale trade, we highlight a U.S. Census Bureau study that tracked e-commerce sales by merchant wholesalers (distributors, jobbers, drop shippers, import/export merchants and like) and MSBOs, or manufacturers sales branches and offices.

The data shows that, as a percent of total shipments, e-commerce sales in both categories have declined since 2011.

E-commerce shipments from merchant wholesalers alone have increased a yearly average of 7%, while furniture MSBO’s have increased by 3%.
