It’s the most wonderful time of the year – holiday shipping season! Holiday sales are expected to increase by 3.6 percent, to $655.8 billion, this year, according to the National Retail Federation’s annual consumer spending survey. With that kind of money on the table, ecommerce businesses need to make sure they’ve fully prepared for a busy couple of months.
We’ve created a handy Holiday Shipping Calendar, which includes important holiday closures and shipping cutoff information for FedEx, UPS and USPS. It also includes ShipWorks customer service contact information and availability, in case you ever need assistance during this busy time of year. Download it here.
If you haven’t done so already, now’s a great time to review and update your shipping policies, and clearly communicate your company’s holiday shipping cutoff dates so customers what they need to do in order to receive time-sensitive holiday purchases on time.

Happy holiday shipping!
