Armani: new e-store marks another missed opportunity in luxury e-commerce

Giorgio Armani has launched an e-shop at Armani.com, offering delivery to 27 countries in Europe, plus Hong Kong, China, Japan, the US, and Canada.

Deutsche Post DHL shifts its focus to the business-to-consumer distribution market

Deutsche Post DHL, having recently retreated from the domestic express market in the UK and France, is still very much focused on the business-to-customer channel.
