The ‘season of giving’ is here! Now is truly a joyous and festive time filled with gifts, gatherings, sparkling lights, and adorable giggles from the little ones.
But for logistics companies and business owners like you, the holiday season is your most hectic time as you do your best to cater to the significant increase in demand while the delivery industry also receives an influx of packages from a surge of online orders and the long-standing tradition of balikbayan boxes, creating a festive rush. While this influx of packages brings excitement and anticipation to Filipino families, it also presents significant logistical challenges.
Online shopping is experiencing a significant uptick, with 72% of Filipinos engaging in both online and physical store purchases, and 15% opting for online-only transactions, particularly popular among the younger generation. Simultaneously, balikbayan boxes, numbering around 5.5 million annually, flood the Philippines, with a notable 40% arriving during the holiday months from September to December.
With all of this surge during the holiday season, the sheer volume of packages strains delivery companies, leading to challenges such as vehicle shortages, mechanical maintenance issues, logistics bottlenecks, and last-mile delivery problems. The resulting delays and disruptions can frustrate customers, impacting satisfaction and hindering the enjoyment of online-ordered goods during the holiday season.
But it doesn’t have to be this way!
