The impacts of the company’s dominant position in the e-commerce market of South Korea are expected to get reflected in the third-quarter results.
The coronavirus-led social-distancing protocol and shelter-at-place restrictions, which have boosted the demand for door-to-door delivery of essentials as well as other items, are likely to have continued driving the customer momentum of Coupang in the quarter under discussion.
Increasing online orders for groceries, medicines and other essential items, as people refrain from stepping outside their homes due to fears of contracting the deadly virus, are likely to have aided the company’s third-quarter performance.
The growing proliferation of Internet usage and ultrafast delivery services is anticipated to have aided growth in Coupang’s logistics business, Rocket Delivery, in the to-be-reported quarter.
Strengthening momentum across the company’s fresh grocery offerings and food delivery offering — Rocket fresh and Coupang eats, respectively — is expected to have aided the company’s third-quarter performance.
