Nearly every industry will experience seasonal peaks – that especially stressful time every year where demand spikes and operations are pushed to their limits. The retail industry is no exception, and while the time of year may be predictable, the demand being faced is anything but. According to the National Retail Federation, the Winter Holiday season represents 20-30% of total retail industry sales, with holiday sales growing an average of 2.5% every year for the last 10 years. This severe seasonal peak will make or break your retail supply chain, and put your workforce to the test.
As you process those final returns from the holiday rush, now is the time to evaluate your operations. When order volumes skyrocketed – especially on Black Friday and Cyber Monday – it probably unearthed weaknesses in your supply chain.
HighJump Warehouse Edge, the end-to-end warehouse management suite for small and mid-sized businesses (SMB), now leverages the full power of mobility and actionable analytics.
