Parcel shipping continues to redefine the standards in supply chain processes. And going as far back as 2016, McKinsey & Company explained the relationship between parcel and peak season, “in mature markets, volumes could double over the next ten years, reaching roughly 5 billion and 25 billion parcels per year in Germany and the U.S. respectively. The largest driver of this growth is not surprisingly e-commerce, which has shifted market share from the B2B to the B2C segment. B2C once made up ~ 40 percent of the market but has since exceeded 50 percent in a number of countries, including Germany.” And what’s more closely related to e-commerce than a pandemic-driven peak season standard? Nothing. And shippers need to know how parcel planning for peak season will shift in the industry’s current state. For that reason, this white paper will explore:

  • How peak season depends on parcel shipping.
  • How DIM pricing will affect peak season planning. 
  • The state of peak season surcharges in 2020. 
  • The top parcel metrics to track to maximize throughput this year.
