Can you survive Christmas

Saturday 12th December has been dubbed “Out of Stock Saturday” by logistics analysts Clear Returns, as it will be the day when the largest number of UK retailers’ stock will be tied up in the returns loop and unavailable to buy.  

They know this as it happens every year.

So does Christmas!

Yet peak, seasonal demand seems to surprise many firms each year.

Of course this doesn't apply to you, does it?

Seriously, if you haven't fully planned your operations over the next month to allow for any seasonal demand - you are too late.  But you could learn the lesson for next year- or for Easter, or whenever demand for your product/service is raised.
