Small digital businesses view postage costs and delivery logistics as the biggest obstacles standing in the way of growth

The reaction follows the findings of a new survey, which reveal that small businesses are worried about rising postage costs and delivery logistics getting in the way of growth. A Blackbay spokesperson provides a statement.

Small digital businesses view postage costs and delivery logistics as the biggest obstacles standing in the way of growth, according to a new survey from eBay. 31 per cent of businesses surveyed by YouGov on behalf of the online marketplace said their development is hampered by these two factors, while a further 74 per cent said that the cost of overseas shipping will impact their ability to reach markets outside the UK.

The results show that small businesses are much more concerned about deliveries than anything else, as only 7 per cent said that they were worried about a lack of suitable staff. Furthermore, the survey showed that just 10 per cent of businesses view staff wages and pension costs as something to be alarmed about.

Blackbay, a company specialising in solutions for the transport and logistics industry, takes a keen interest in reports such as this. A spokesperson provided this statement: “This survey reveals what small digital businesses are really concerned about, and that’s getting their products out to the consumer as efficiently as possible at a reasonable cost.
