A recent National Retail Foundation survey showed that 39 percent of consumers will start holiday shopping in late October or even earlier, largely due to their concerns about in-store safety, shipping delays and limited inventory in the wake of COVID-19. With the holiday shopping season starting earlier this year, many businesses—including retailers, manufacturing & logistics firms, and warehouses/distribution centers—have needed to pivot quickly and adapt their traditional holiday season models. They must do so while accommodating for social distancing regulations as well as a notable increase in e-commerce activity.
