Break down supply chain delays to win holidays – WKRG News 5

Shreveport, Louisiana (KTAL / KMSS) – The busiest time for postal and parcel carriers is here, and UPS has some tips to help you receive gifts on time.

Between now and Christmas Eve, UPS will deliver millions of holiday packages. They have been hiring and adding capabilities since January to prepare for the “peak season”. A supply chain shortage can affect the chances of getting holiday goods to their destination, but UPS has several ways to win a holiday.

  • Sooner or later shopping.. With the early sales offered by most retailers, there are plenty of opportunities to find lots while still in stock. The sooner the better.
  • We will pack and ship your luggage as soon as possible.. If you buy your gifts, please send them as soon as possible. This helps avoid delays caused by weather and other issues.
  • Make a backup plan.. If your store runs out of stock, it’s a good idea to consider something that can be changed immediately instead. Gift cards, event tickets, services and more can be easily provided on a short schedule.
  • Know the deadline.. Delivery to friends and family in different regions can take different times. Be sure to mark your calendar so that you can send gifts in time to arrive at your destination. Unless you want it to be a New Year’s gift.
  • Share these tips.. Make sure everyone knows what to do so that your loved ones can get the gifts they want on time.
