Tips and Tricks for Shipping During Peak Time

by Shimoli S. Engineering Graduate

In an e-commerce or retail industry, the holiday season, sale season and new launches are the seasons of peak sales. The customer’s satisfaction matters the most for such brands to be successful. Delivery of the right products, to the right customer, at or before the estimated time, is the deciding factor of customer's satisfaction. If the products fail to reach the customer's location within the stipulated time, then they might not be willing to shop with you again. But during the peak sales time, there can be a delay in delivery, damage of goods or any mishap is possible. Also, you might face challenges that can make your delivery process come to a standstill.

Partnering with a logistics firm that will help you overcome delivering challenges and make sure that packages will reach the customers in perfect condition. Be it getting space on the ship or making sure that the package reaches its destination, coastal shipping companies in India will help you with everything. Here are a few tips and tricks you need to know about sending your cargo during peak times -

 

Planning ahead

We cannot put enough emphasis on the importance of planning beforehand when it comes to shipping. You should inform your shipping company well in advance about the peak seasons. If you take this step, your logistics company can ensure enough space for all your goods and products.

 

Cargo might be at risk

During the peak seasons, your cargo can be at the risk of theft, damage or loss, be it while transporting or during storage. Partnering with efficient logistics makes sure to transport your cargo well, as well as store it at a safe warehouse or icd cfs

 

Flexibility

Though your shipping partner will ensure that they get you the best prices for shipping your cargo, if you have the flexibility to ship some loads later, then push it.
