Get ready – the holiday season is here!
It’s time to make that list and check it twice, and get ready to shop! Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, researchers are predicting both an increase in online sales this year, as well as an increase in package deliveries so it’s recommended to shop and ship early.
In fact, Deloitte’s annual holiday retail survey predicts that online sales will grow by 25 to 35 percent between November and January, compared with about 15 percent for the same time last year.
The spread of Covid-19 has triggered an increase in e-commerce since March, which led to a large shipping volume. “They have consistently been at Christmas peak or Cyber Monday levels every day,” said FedEx (FDX) Chief Marketing Officer Brie Carere in a recent interview. “Now we’re headed into a peak on top of a peak.
