The Holidays Are Here, Logistics to the Rescue!

The holidays can be a very exciting and magical time of year. However, it can also be stressful for those who are purchasing gifts for themselves and for others. When ordering merchandise and planning to have it delivered, reminds people how stressful this time of year can be. As a customer, you constantly have to worry that everything is going to arrive on time, correctly and without any damage. Unfortunately, this is hard to oversee as many retailers are flooding with orders and trying to keep everyone happy and satisfied.

This time of year is a reminder of why a third-party logistics company is so important. A third party-logistics company, such as 3PD, offers business-to-business, business-to-home and job site delivery. Using a third-party logistics company will only benefit you and make your holidays a little less stressful. Logistics is 3PD’s specialty and ensuring that your gifts and merchandise purchased get to you in a efficient and safe way. 3PD focuses on last-mile delivery and provides exceptional white glove delivery service to ensure that your items are handled with the utmost care. Worried about the large 60″ television you just purchased for your husband and getting it to him practically untouched? With the significant amount of wrapping, use of white gloves and assembly and installation provided, what more could you possibly ask for this holiday season?

To prepare yourself for shopping this holiday season, be sure you:

1. Research and Prepare. Write a list of what you need to buy and who you need to buy for. Within these points, make sure you add where to purchase the gifts from to assist in narrowing down your search. Research online, call stores and shop around.

2. The Early Bird Gets the Worm. Shopping early is key during the holiday season. Be sure to allow yourself enough time to purchase and order gifts. Be sure to find out shipping cut offs, shipping dates and the return and exchange policy that each store provides.

3. Know Your Dates. Get familiar with the busiest shipping days during the holiday so that you can plan accordingly. During the 2010/2011 year, December 13-17 is expected to be the most chaotic.

As long as you prepare for holiday shopping and shipping, you will be in good hands. For more information on third-party logistics and delivery services, please contact 3PD.
