For so many businesses the Christmas period – that annual fiesta of shopping and feasting – is the time of peak demand during the year. But this Christmas will be like no other for those in the supply chain.
Being able to deliver for your customers is paramount, not only to allow you to maximise trade and profit when demand is high, but to keep customers happy in the longer term too – because during the festive season the stakes are high and if you let a customer down at this crucial time, the chances are they won’t be back.
Preparing for this period is always demanding – but now with all the ongoing global supply chain issues and huge pressure on labour within the logistics sector, including the HGV driver shortages – Christmas 2021 is shaping up to be a bigger challenge than ever before.
Meeting peak season demand
After two years marked by lockdowns which accelerated the already rapid shift in our purchasing habits, online shopping will be king this Christmas and businesses are expecting to see a massive demand for eCommerce delivery and material handling.
