How to Navigate the Holiday Shipping Season
Holiday Shipping by the Numbers
Knowing how to navigate the holiday shipping season can save small-to-medium-sized businesses hundreds each year. According to Adobe Analytics, the 2018 holiday e-commerce season topped $126 billion in online sales. The majority of this revenue came from the Cyber 5 (Thanksgiving to Cyber Monday), further reminding us that online shopping is quickly becoming a preferred way to shop. And if this year’s holiday e-commerce season is anywhere near as good as the previous year, shippers everywhere will be busy meeting the needs of their customers.
Avoid Crunch Time & Delayed Deliveries
The booming world of e-commerce is not just limited to B2C business models. B2B e-commerce companies can also expect a push from the peak shipping season. It doesn’t matter if you’re in the business of shipping packages directly to customers and/or freight to warehouses. It’s important to prepare to ship early and avoid getting caught up in high-volume delivery traffic. You’ll certainly need a helping hand to streamline your supply chain and cope with the rapid change in consumer demand during the holidays.
Outsourcing your shipping needs to a third party helps you focus on other areas of your business while getting your goods shipped where they need to be in no time.
