The number of parcels delivered at the Express One courier service on some days in April exceeded the peak Christmas period.

The effects of the coronavirus epidemic have significantly boosted online orders, with the courier company seeing a 90% increase in the B2C, or “direct-to-customer” segment in April this year compared to the same period last year.

At Praktiker, which operates both a chain store and a webshop, online traffic increased compared to 2019 data, the economics website adds.
