The countdown to the end of the year implies taking into account the timely planning of your business in terms of logistics so that you have stock of all the products that your customers demand.
Despite the fact that we know that there are 4 months left to finish the year, time is running out for business, and this implies that companies must work efficiently so that the products they import or export reach their customers on time, in addition to ensuring the stick necessary to reach even new consumers.
If we take into account data from the Chilean National Chamber of Commerce, 12% of physical sales are concentrated in the month of December, and these percentages change depending on the category analyzed.
The logistics market, on the other hand, must consider the increase in demand that this means. The increase in the demand for the transport of merchandise, the requirement in delivery times, and the availability of containers worldwide are elements to consider when planning the stock to be imported or exported for the end-of-the-year dates.
A container with merchandise shipped from Asia can take approximately 40 days to arrive in Chile, and in the event of delays in the ports or in the documentation delivered, 60 days inclusive. For this reason, it is recommended to contemplate a minimum of 1 month to ship the products to be exported or imported, leaving the necessary time to transport, inventory, classify and finally, take the products to the client in the stipulated times.
In the same way, it is recommended to make a list of the priority products that your business considers the most required for the end of the year times and for this, previous market analysis or a study of previous years could be your best tools.
Thus, we believe that the best solution is to plan the logistics on time so that your business is a complete success.
