"Shipping Capacity Management: The Outlook for 2022 Peak"

Q4 Parcel Capacity Is There, But Challenges Remain

The 2022 peak season for retail will be interesting in terms of available parcel shipping capacity to get goods where they need to go in a retailer’s network. In 2020, a flood of volume swamped parcel carriers, with loads were refused and caps exceeded.

Then in 2021, volumes eased and the expected deluge didn’t materialize, leading to a different set of issues. Now most indicators point to more than sufficient capacity to meet demand. But that doesn’t mean completely smooth sailing, with supply chain chokepoints and a possible dockworker strike looming.

In an operations special report from Multichannel Merchant on capacity management, experts and retailers take a look ahead at Q4 and share their insights, predictions and the outlook as well the impact of supply chain issues.

You will learn:

  • About nagging supply chain issues and the effect on inbound timelines
  • How shippers are looking at regional carriers through the cost/benefit lens
  • How SMB Short Par 4 deals with inbound bumping from larger shippers
  • How newer logistics entrants are providing options for Q4
