Autonomous Cars and The New Possibilities for eCommerce

In Hanna-Barbera’s cartoon series The Jetsons, which is set in a future full of gadgets, the most impressive of all was the one used to make cars disappear. The eternal problem of parking in the morning was resolved by a little gun that made the neighbour’s car vanish, in order to get a space.

B2B E-Commerce: The Golden Secret of Digital Trade

Let’s go back for a moment to the Middle Ages, when all the foundations of the socio-economic system were really established that we know and manage nowadays.

In a small village that is well known for its numerous oat fields, a farmer was eating porridge for breakfast while he sorrowfully looked towards his vegetable patch on which only cauliflower used to grow. Suddenly, an idea sprang to his mind: that difference could mean a business opportunity, so he soon started to take boxes of cauliflowers to other villagers in exchange for a certain amount of money. He developed a B2C (Business-to-Consumer) trade model (besides making the first move for the whole modern network of boxes with fresh veggies).

Facts about e-commerce in Spain

In the last few years, there has been a downturn in the economy in most fields, as a result of low consumption we can see companies that had to shut down and a higher rate of unemployment that will definitely keep generating a lesser need of consumption.

Facing this situation, there is still a market holding up, the e-commerce, that has not only dealt with the overwhelming effects of the crisis but also continues growing enormously. We live in a society that has a different path to the one believed years ago and they way to consume has also changed, the multichannel marketing. This concept is basically shopping through different physical channels (traditional shopping) online (e-commerce or apps), or mixed, a more frequent reality in our cities.

According to the last study of electronic commerce in Spain performed by “Comision Nacional de los Mercados y la Competencia” , it is stated that Spain has reached a business volume of 3578.7 millions of euros, a 26.8% of what was produced the previous year.
