Is your business ready for the Christmas rush?

No primary category set

3P Logistics are able to offer a fully outsourced warehouse operation for online retailers enabling merchants to carry on with the business of selling. At Christmas, the busiest time of the year many sellers look to outsource some fulfilment or take on extra warehouse space. However Ian Walker from 3P Logistics warns that you need to plan now for the Christmas Rush in order to have the services you need in place by Christmas.

Christmas is coming

No sooner have the distant memories of summer long gone there are just 98 days left until Christmas Day!
With another record year for online sales looming large is your business well positioned to capitalise on such seasonal demand?

At 3P Logistics we understand how critical a successful the Christmas period is for our clients. For some businesses, the months of November and December can constitute well over 50% of annual sales in two months alone.

Outsourcing Benefits

Outsourcing order fulfilment to a third party specialist realises a number of immediate benefits including:

• Time: To focus on sourcing and selling – “do what you do best and outsource the rest”.
• Flexibility: Without the worry of hiring extra staff or sourcing more space
• Cost: Savings linked to “pay as you use” warehousing and low cost delivery options
• Service: Enhancement linked to accuracy and shorter delivery times.
• Relax: With the peace of mind that your orders are in good hands.

To ensure that we deliver a memorable Christmas for our clients and their customers 3P Logistics adopt “lock down” from Monday 1st November each year. From November 1st through to January the doors will close to new business integration as we focus entirely upon fulfilling peak volume for our existing clients.
