With the end of the year fast approaching, businesses large and small become immersed in one of several seasonal peaks, facing the challenge to ensure they can keep up with a significant increase in consumer demand.
As high street retailers battle the growing online marketplace, it is more important than ever for businesses to have a reliable logistics operation running behind the scenes. Not only in a bid to keep stores stocked ready for the daily rush of consumers, but additionally important this year given the rise in retailers using ‘omni-services’ like click and collect, in the battle against the growth of online specialists including Asos & Amazon. The click & collect market is forecast to increase 55.6% over the next five years*, aiming to make the transition between shopping online and in stores as easy as possible for consumers.
A key consideration for retailers during peak season, is finding the right logistics provider who can handle short notice loads, and this falls to those companies operating with the highest levels of efficiency. Crown Couriers has been an early leader in this market, establishing a strong reputation for developing bespoke same-day delivery solutions using optimised route planning software and live GPS tracking. The team respond to even the most unique and challenging customer requirements with a ‘can do’ attitude, along with honest, proactive communications.
