The Christmas Holiday season is fast approaching. Whilst the sun is shining many are businesses are busy thinking about the impending (and much colder) peak season.
Planning for the retail peak season is currently top of mind and the key to a successful (and stress free) season starts with understanding when peak season is going to hit. According to ecommerce consultancy Salmon, this year we could see November overtake December as the year’s peak trading month.
78% of ecommerce businesses say that meeting the additional demand for orders at peak times was an ongoing challenge in 2016 and with expectations of next day/same day delivery becoming the norm for customers delivery failures are a big no no!
