The document is talking about XXX company's customer purchasing strategy.

Could this sentence mean that the average customer purchase in relation to the revenue increased from 16% in 2001/2002 to 27% in 2008?

I think your are right. The average weight/order compared with the revenue has gone up, i.e. gross margins have com down.

This seems the logical translation to me, but I don't know if there's a better term in English.

'Weight purchase' would be 'achat de poids', not 'poids d'achat'.
