The smell of pumpkin spice. The sound of jingle bells. For those in the logistics business, these hallmarks of the holidays mean one thing… peak season is upon us. Last holiday season, U.S. customers purchased more than $123 billion worth of merchandise online and $874 billion in offline spending, a staggering total just shy of $1 trillion. With Thanksgiving falling later this year, peak season has dwindled from 5 weeks to less than 4 weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas. The shorter shipping window coupled with predications of e-commerce sales growing 18% from last year put additional stress on an already maxed out supply chain. (Source)
