Peak Planning in 2020
At the close of peak season 2019, few would have anticipated how much the global landscape has shifted by the time it came to planning for 2020.
The far-reaching implications of the COVID-19 pandemic have been felt by practically every retailer here in the UK and worldwide, from the short-term closures of brick-and-mortar locations to an acceleration of e-commerce activity, as more and more people have come to depend on online shopping.
With peak season 2020 expected to witness the largest spike in global e-commerce activity ever experienced, it is critical that you are prepared for added challenges and pressures this will place on your organisation. In particular, whether your current delivery service is up to the task of meeting this estimated record-shattering demand.
In this informative document, we will present the information you require to help ensure that your delivery service is not derailed by the added pressures of this year’s “Golden Quarter”. We will explore:
- What you need to know about the current e-commerce landscape, including cross-border activity.
- Which areas of your delivery service you should review to make sure you’re fully prepared for these potentially hectic months.
- Other areas of your organisation that need to be evaluated prior to the upcoming influx of online traffic.
