“It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year”

By December 12, 2011 Distribution, Fulfillment, Packaging

There are a lot of reasons many people consider this the most wonderful time of the year.  Those of us in the fulfillment world might just have a little different twist.  Today typically marks the busiest shipping day of the year.  Both FedEx and UPS are projecting record days today.  FedEx alone is estimating 17 million packages will move through their system!  Better news is that this represents a 12% increase over last year’s busiest day.  TAGG started experiencing the Holiday rush several months ago as our outsourced distribution clients began shipping to retailers to stock the shelves.  The pace of our fulfillment clients picked up dramatically after Thanksgiving and is reaching it’s peak…and just think, soon our reverse logistics and returns processing business will be in overdrive.  It’s the most wonderful time of the year!
