Today we bring you our end of summer advice blog… Order pallets now for the holiday shipping season! If history has taught us anything, one of the lessons we should pay close attention to is to keep past practice in mind in order to avoid repeating the same mistakes. So as we approach the end of the summer it’s never too early to anticipate the holiday shopping season, which will be here before we know it. Now is the perfect time to place your order for the extra pallets you’ll need to handle your holiday product surge.
Typically we think of gifts for Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza and even the New Year. But the holiday shopping season also includes Halloween and Thanksgiving. So inventory increases for all of these holidays, and all retailers need to start thinking about a key ingredient for the shopping season – how is my pallet supply?
The extended fall shopping season is the make or break time for the majority of businesses. Keeping that in mind it’s prudent to be prepared for the surge in product that will be on your shelves and in your warehouses.
Halloween has become a very big holiday in this country. According to the National Retail Federation consumers spent $8.4 billion on candy, costumes, parties and, of course, pumpkins! Much of that stock gets delivered to its destination on pallets.
Thanksgiving turkeys and all the trimmings occupy supermarket and warehouse shelves for much of November and once again these items get delivered to the stores on pallets. And lastly comes all the merchandise for the December holidays. Don’t let these seasonal volume increases catch you unprepared.
