“In India, we are seeing our exporters and e-comm. sellers experiencing an upswing as well. There is room for cautious optimism as the economy opens up and activities pick up further in the coming weeks,” said R.S Subramanian, senior vice president and managing director, DHL Express India.

“The pandemic has resulted in an exponential rise in online shopping. With most physical stores closed altogether during the lockdown, and those that are open hindering people’s ability to social distance, many consumers have switched to e-commerce. While our economy is opening up and people are cautiously venturing out, the online purchasing trend will continue this festive season,” he added.
