The End of Year Rush is Here – Black Friday, Christmas, & Chinese New Year, oh my!

The end of 2019 means one thing for the transportation and logistics industry – the busy season is here! This time of year, even into January of next year, has a higher than usual chance for delays and other issues.

The End of Year Rush is Here – Black Friday, Christmas, & Chinese New Year, oh my!

Black Friday marks the unofficial start of the holiday gift-buying season, meaning retailers have planned ahead and bulked up their inventory. Increased volumes mean that any bottlenecks can cause a major disruption in getting products onto shelves. Supply chain managers must arrange for alternative processes and create plans to offset the extra strain on their resources. 

It’s not too late to plan for Chinese New Year

Chinese New Year celebrations will kick off around January 25th, 2020, and most freight out of China slows down for a few days. The best way to avoid possible delays around that time is to order early, ensuring that your cargo is delivered before the holiday.

The end of the year rush can be unpredictable, even when companies analyze data to predict volumes. Get ahead of the game—contact DSV now and let us get your freight moving.
