In a globe that is constantly shifting towards digitalization and automation of delivery of goods and services, the value of delivery services cannot be overstated. It represents the future of the retail industry. The current social, demographic, workforce and economic trends show that there is a projected increase in the volume of delivery in the foreseeable future.

The rationale behind this is that in spending, there is increased cash flow and thus creating an opportunity for other people to earn an income. The result is that the economy is significantly boosted (Schaffner et al., 2003). There is in addition a considerable increase in the amount of online shopping.

In addition, the increased emphasis on convenience has seen more people opt for delivery, as opposed to picking the commodities themselves. In addition, there is reduced diversity in the social set ups due to the influence of westernization.
