It’s time to think about Christmas shipping

Merry Christmas

If you have an e-commerce company, you need to make sure your packages and parcels reach their destinations on time throughout the year. But Christmas is a major global holiday that can affect deliveries. Whether you need priority or express service, Spring can deliver your shipments on time.

Each year, e-commerce businesses around the world need to cope with getting their shipments delivered on time. Especially during the Christmas holiday season. At Spring we can help you make sure all your packages get there in time.

Christmas shopping trends 

In the UK, consumers spend more than £2 billion during the holiday. And it’s even more in the United States. Generous gift givers in the US spend more than $1 trillion on loved ones during the holiday season. And 46% of this shopping frenzy occurs online. In our digital age, consumers are getting more comfortable shopping on their devices, with 21% buying gifts using a smartphone or tablet. To make sure your customers receive their packages on time, Spring offers a variety of shipping services to meet your global shipping needs. 

Priority or Standard service 

Send parcels by Standard service if you’re not rushed. The delivery time is longer but the rate is lower. If time is an issue, our Spring Priority service will get it there faster. 

Express service 

For destinations within major cities, our Express service is a faster option. However if the destination is outside a city, keep in mind it will take more time to reach your customers. 

Registered and insured mail 

Some mail or parcels contain valuables or important documents. The best way to ship these is with Registered mail that is also insured. These are processed through an extra secure channel. While this service takes a bit longer, you can also track shipments to know where they are along the way.
