BME & DHL Express Meet-up: cross-border e-commerce

BME en DHL e-commerce meet-up

What if… you gather professionals from different sectors and companies of various sizes to share their experiences with e-commerce.

During the very first e-commerce meet-up, an initiative of BME and DHL Express Belgium, we met a mix of upcoming talents and professionals from both start-ups and multinationals. These professionals already have one thing in common: they want to conquer the world thanks through e-commerce. The goal of the evening: inspire and exchange experiences.

Internationalize via e-commerce

Internationalize, it’s a broad concept. A must for companies? We think so! Globalization, the growing power of the consumer and the evolution of technology contribute to the accessibility and the growing necessity of internationalization. Missing the boat isn’t an option!

A strategic location, knowledge and innovation are no longer the basis of a successful international company. The level of digitalization, support from partnerships and a lot of guts are essential.

Three take-aways

  • Globalization is here to stay – don’t miss the boat!
  • Quick wins: consider small adjustments you can make to enable international sales online.
  • Be aware of what the consumers of today really want.

Digitalization is a must

The increased speed of transactions requires a flexible approach. And how can you better map you processes than with digitalization? But how do you prepare for this? First of all, map out your processes and plan your digitalization in detail.
