October is here, and that means the holiday season is just a few short weeks away. If your business relies heavily on sending products through the mail, now is the time to stock up on supplies.
In 2019, the U.S. Postal Service delivered more than 28 million packages a day between December 16 and 21. Between Thanksgiving Day and New Year’s Day 2020, they delivered more than 800 million packages.
With the COVID-19 pandemic still raging, and no hope of a vaccine until sometime later this year or early next, those numbers are expected to rise. At the end of May, more than 80% of Americans were purchasing groceries online. With social distancing measures still in effect and the threat of a “twin-demic” with the seasonal flu, industry experts expect online shopping (and shipping) to continue throughout the remainder of 2020.
