With more consumers saying they will shop online on Cyber Monday, 2013 promises to be a landmark holiday shipping season for small and midsize businesses.
Dallas, TX (PRWEB) November 26, 2013
Worldwide Express, a Dallas-based global package and freight-shipping firm for small and midsize businesses, is preparing for what is expected to be the busiest shipping day of the year: Cyber Monday. Providing insight on the 2013 holiday shipping season, Worldwide Express released an infographic outlining trends in online shopping, consumer expectations and SMB holiday shipping.
“The time between Thanksgiving and Christmas is the busiest time of the year for Worldwide Express franchisees,” said Tom Madine, Worldwide Express’ president and chief executive officer. “With more consumers saying they will shop online on Cyber Monday, 2013 promises to be a landmark holiday shipping season for small and midsize businesses.”
According to Madine, many retailers plan to increase free shipping offers during the holiday season, knowing that online shoppers will respond to promotions – especially those guaranteeing an on-time delivery date.
Further impacting shipping volume is the increase of consumers making purchases on their mobile devices. “Mobile shopping is bigger than ever before,” said Madine. “As mobile purchases continue to grow, so will shipping as retailers respond to online demand.”
Worldwide Express handles millions of package and freight shipments for more than 30,000 small and midsize businesses. The company was founded in 1995 with a simple idea: to give small and midsize companies – those that form the backbone of the U.S. economy – the same volume perks and shipping options afforded to Fortune 500 companies. Worldwide Express works closely with business owners to identify shipping challenges, and then provides solutions to support their success and help them compete better in the marketplace.
