Christmas may be the most wonderful time of the year but it is also the busiest for many industries. As well as the obvious: retail, the leisure industry such as pubs, clubs and restaurants will see a huge rise, too. A consequence of this is many stores will need to order more stock, buy in larger amounts of supplies and transport companies and taxi drivers will be inundated with work, too.
It is the peak selling season in retail for many countries across the world as people head to shopping centres in the search for festive gifts. In addition to this, people will also be on the lookout for new holiday decorations and supplies, not to mention food and drink. Party season will soon be in full swing are you prepared?
In the UK and Ireland, this season starts can start as early as October, with the primary busy period spanning November through to New Years Eve. Festive celebrations and events such as Halloween, Bonfire Night, Christmas Light Switch On, Christmas parties, meals out and New Years celebrations combine for the busiest 10-12 weeks of the year.
While expenditure online as well as on the high street and in supermarkets are at an all time high during this period, it is essential that the businesses supplying them are just as prepared. Prices can be slashed to attract more customers, meaning supply and demand has never been more necessary.
The colder weather will also impact how business flows. If your business relies on transport then a spate of bad weather or a snowstorm could severely impact your core service. With fleet tracking in place, you can control and oversee your entire fleet with ease.
