Next Monday, November 29, will be the busiest day of the year for parcel carriers by far. Sendcloud predicts a parcel peak of 242 percent on top of normal.
The logistics tech specialist from Eindhoven is once again calculating his expectations for the logistics sector this year. Sendcloud helps web shops to streamline their shipping processes and therefore has an overview of many parcel movements at numerous carriers, also outside the Netherlands.
Many online stores have spread their Black Friday promotions over a week this year, in order to spread the crowds. The parcel volumes are therefore above average throughout the week, with peaks on Monday 22 and 29 November. On Monday, November 22, Sendcloud already expects 161 percent more shipments than usual. However, Cyber Monday will be the busiest shipping day of 2021. More than three times as many packages will be shipped (+242%).
Saturday and Sunday, on the other hand, are a bit quieter. This is because many online stores only process their orders after the weekend and carriers only deliver to a limited extent during the weekend.
Sendcloud uses an average of the figures for 2019 and 2020 as the basis for the figures.
The company sees a trend where consumers increasingly need multiple receiving options. Not only: ‘tomorrow when PostNL comes’, but also other time periods of other carriers and physical collection points in the physical environment, such as parcel safes or neighborhood delivery.
