Last year, many online merchants had to face unhappy holiday shoppers who were disappointed when their packages were delayed and, in some cases, didn’t arrive in time for Christmas.
Major carriers were overwhelmed by an unpredictably large number of packages to be shipped out right before Christmas and couldn’t deliver thousands of them in time for the big day, disappointing children everywhere.
How shipping carriers perform during crunch time impacts consumer confidence in online shopping, and late deliveries can harm a seller’s reputation. After facing a perfect storm that resulted in a challenging holidayseason last year, you need to ask yourself how will you handle the holiday overflow this year?
Your company’s plans this year should take into account not only growth for the holiday season but also the growth in global commerce.
