Trick-Or-Treat: Shipping for Halloween
All Hollow’s Eve will be here before we know it! But it’s not just going to be ghouls, goblins, and vampires having the time of their undead lives. Shoppers are gearing up for the spookiest night of the year, and retailers are shipping for Halloween.
The National Retail Federation forecasts that this year, Halloween spending by Americans will reach $9 billion. With costumes and decorations filling online carts and candy flying off grocery store shelves, the supply chains behind the scenes for these businesses have to be precise and operate smoothly to keep adequate quantities of inventory available. If you aren’t prepared with a top-notch logistics plan, it could mean no candy for the children and no cute witch hats on little black kittens.
Avoiding the Tricks. Shipping the Treats.
Seasonal businesses rely on their supply chains to balance their inventories. Bringing in the right amount of goods at the right time helps retailers and manufacturers meet consumer demands and maintain customer satisfaction. Too much of one product and not enough of another can cost you!
As we all know, candy is in high demand this time. Confectionary companies shift into overdrive, creating and shipping their savory treats from A to B. Products like candy need special shipping, temperature-controlled trailers, and carriers who can service the right lanes for the best rates.
This is where shippers everywhere benefit from a transportation management system (TMS) to centralize all available carriers, lanes, and rates side by side for comparison. Whether internally or outsourcing to a third-party shipping solutions provider, shippers save copious amounts of time with this technology.
