Black Friday and Cyber Monday are here, and the frenzy will last until Christmas and beyond, with a long tail of returns. Most of the more important retailers in the country are already gearing up for the annual peaks; some hired thousands of seasonal staffers, and others brought hundreds of workers in their supply chain facilities to permanent roles.
Why are these days important for the logistics industry?
With the increase in online shopping, this season has become the busiest in terms of delivery. Black Friday and Cyber Monday put enormous pressure on retail and e-commerce businesses. Hence, they must run on a powerful logistics setup with transportation management software. As flash sales, such as Black Friday, run for a limited time, allowing merchants to clear their inventory, attract new customers, and increase sales profit, it is up to all of the members of this supply chain to make it a seamless operation.
Gone are the days in which individual buyers would stand in line, waiting for the stores to open. People have started to do all their shopping online, and this tendency has been on the rise since it proved to be more convenient for many shoppers. Therefore, guaranteeing a proper supply chain supplier is going to be a key aspect this year. Delivery companies will need to be aware of the change in consumer behavior.
