The holidays are going to look a little different this year for retailers. While shopping in-store may still be happening, online retail is expected to grow 18.5% this year, with 64% of consumers saying they will spend more online than last year. Online sales for retailers in specific categories are expected to see a bump. Fashion is estimated to go up 19%, consumer electronics are expected to grow 20% and home furnishings rising 16% by the end of 2020.
So, what does this mean for you and your business? As we get closer to the holiday season, the added pressures of an increase in customer demand will become more and more evident. Having a 3PL partner during the holiday season will not only be beneficial to you and your business’ profitability, it will be crucial to giving your customers the kind of service they’ve come to expect from online retailers. If you find yourself doing a last-minute search for 3PL partners due to the increase in product demand, Maverick Fulfillment is a great resource for contract work, and it’s never too late to book with us.
