Expect more disruption soon. Peak container shipping season is around the corner.
We’re all aware that the fourth quarter of every year is peak holiday shopping time, but the supply chain is preparing for the rush long before the fall months. In fact, peak container shipping season starts in the third quarter, just before summer.
A recent survey of 200 container logistics experts conducted by Container xChange found that 51% of respondents expected this year’s peak season to be worse than last year. Having an inventory strategy in place now to prepare for commodities in short supply is critical.
