Parcel Pro, a UPS Capital company, announces a partnership with Manufacturing Jewelers & Suppliers of America (MJSA) that provides MJSA Premier Members access to innovative technology and insured shipping at a time when the industry is experiencing rapid eCommerce growth.
Online sales of luxury goods continue to flourish with growth of 24% in 2017. According to the 2018 Luxury eCommerce Report, six out of 10 of the fastest growing luxury websites surveyed were jewelry and watch companies. Jewelry represented 13.4% of the 130 companies’ online sales.
Additionally, consumers continue to express an interest in custom-designed jewelry. In fact, custom now represents 40% of the $10 billion bridal market.
With jewelers selling more online goods, the need for reliable, insured transportation is crucial to meeting customer demand.
“eCommerce retail revenue is expected to top $4.88 trillion by 20213, so it is no surprise we are seeing more luxury goods shipments. Our solutions and capabilities will help MJSA members meet the growing needs of their customers whether they’re shipping $1 million or $500 million in goods a year.”
