There are many peak seasons for logistics during the year – but one of the busiest is the holiday season leading up to Christmas, Hannukah and finally the New Year celebrations. The shopping continues with the start of the new year – and that means a rushed time for your logistics. At Twill, we know how busy it can get and we’re here to help you and your business get through this and keep your shipments moving. So, you can relax and focus on your business operations – and enjoy the holiday season.
26th October 2020
The holiday season is known as the most wonderful time of the year – or also as the busiest one. You run from one shop to the other, try to buy Christmas presents in time, get ready with lots of season feasts and visit your loved ones. This year the COVID-19 pandemic might change this scenario, moving more Christmas sales online, so let’s get ready!
The busy season also counts for your business – and with that, the supply chain of your company is under pressure. Moreover, you must get ready and plan ahead for a fresh start in 2021. While you won’t be in the office during the last days of the year, hopefully spending some well-deserved time off with your family during these unprecedented times, you can still make sure your supply chain is not being interrupted for when you return to work.
What the holiday season means for your logistics
This indicates logistics can get rushed – especially during the peak season of the holidays. As shoppers demand a lot of different products – and more than normally – you as their supplier need to be ready to have all the products in stock. This counts for December as well as January because once Christmas is over, customers are not done with the shopping yet. So, your logistics have to be ready for the new year as well, with new stock in place to meet your customers’ demand.
You need to be one step ahead of your logistics. So, plan your logistics in time to get all the goods in place before customers start ordering your products. And be aware, that online sales are predicted to increase due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Moreover, start shipping your cargo for the new year before the holidays, so you will have no rush in January. Overall, you must ensure to have a logistics partner on your side who transports your cargo in time not only throughout the holiday season but also further, throughout the whole year.
What Twill can do for you
At Twill we know that the holiday season is another peak season for you and your business. We also know that you will have a peak in January once the celebrations are over.
