Busiest Shipping Days of the Year

The majority of a shipping company’s business is derived from the holiday seasons. Whether you’re ordering something online or shipping something that you already purchased, you’re keeping the industry busy. Here’s a list of some of the busiest shipping days of the year.

February 14th:
Many individuals love sending and receiving chocolates, jewelry and other items that showcase their feelings for one another on Valentine’s Day. Surprising your loved ones at work or home is a sneaky yet thoughtful way of showing that you care.

Cyber Monday
The Monday after Thanksgiving, known as Cyber Monday, is crucial for shipping. While Black Friday kicks off the holiday shopping season, this day kicks off the shipping craziness. Business offer unlimited deals and free shipping with purchase which leads to busy delivery services.

December 24th: 
For the many procrastinators who wait until late in December to ship an item, shipping companies work tirelessly even on Christmas Eve to ensure packages get to their destinations on time for Christmas morning.

Black Friday
Black Friday has been known as the busiest shopping day of the year for a while now. In 2013, the post office  stated they processed 600 million pieces of mail on December 16th, and many shipping companies doubled their business.

Regardless of a customer’s needs, whether it be it local package delivery , messenger services or shipping a package from one state to another, experienced shipping companies know how to meet their customer’s needs even during the busiest shipping days of the year.
