What to Expect for the 2018 Holiday Shipping Season


It’s that time of year again - the days are getting colder, the seasonal festivities are near, and there are presents galore being shipping to consumers across the country - in the form of packages. Lots and lots of packages. This year’s peak package season has arrived… be prepared with these tips and insight from the Notifii Team!

Ecommerce Will Continue to Grow

This year’s Black Friday weekend and Cyber Monday week is expected to be the largest week of eCommerce - ever. With huge deals from millions of companies, it’s highly likely that these holidays are bringing hundreds of packages to your community. With deals that are difficult to resist and the speed of shipping faster than ever, people are continuing to skip the lines and get the same deals online, which means all of these products will be shipped right to their door - or to be even more accurate, yours.

Amazon’s Volume is expected to be larger than ever:

Amazon has already announced that they’ll be offering free shipping this holiday season - catapulting the already monstrous eCommerce website’s estimated package volume even higher than previously expected. Amazon.com Inc. snapped up between 45% and 50% of all online holiday retail sales in 2017, and that number is expected to be even larger this year.

Mobile Shopping is the Next Biggest Trend:

This year, more consumers than ever before are actually going to purchase their items on mobile devices. People are shopping, searching and purchasing on mobile - making it easier than ever for online shoppers to purchase the items they’re searching for in a few simple clicks. The addition of Amazon’s Alexa and Google play is also expected to create their own booms for online shopping - when you can repurchase and buy new items by voice alone, it’s safe to say that people are now turning to ease when it comes to online purchases.

People Are Expecting Efficiency:

People shop online because it’s easy - and when the experience doesn’t go as expected, people are upset. Amazon Prime’s two-day shipping has created a group of consumers that expects their packages promptly and easily - tracking and all. Whether we’re talking about your residents, students, or corporate employees, efficiency is no longer an ideal - it’ a necessity -  and that’s where we come in!
