Your Guide to Holiday Shipping: Parcel Edition

The busy holiday shipping season can be an overwhelming time for many small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs). But holiday shipping doesn't have to be stressful!

In our recent e-guide, WWEX outlines everything you need to know about small package UPS shipping during the holidays. Download our Guide to Holiday Shipping: Parcel Edition to ensure your business enjoys a successful and hassle-free holiday shipping season this year.

Our e-guide covers a number of important holiday topics, including:

  • The right way to package your shipments. In the midst of peak UPS shipping season you might be tempted to rush those parcels out the door, but by taking time to package securely and label accurately, you'll be able to save more time than you think. Doing so can help prevent any unnecessary delays during such a busy time of year.
  • Understanding holiday shipping schedules. When shipping small packages at the year's end, it's important to note that several carriers don't deliver or pick up on major holidays (including Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's Eve and New Year's Day). Some carriers also shorten their hours during the holiday season or close early on certain days.
  • Planning ahead of time. Be sure to plan ahead for the busy holiday shipping rush and set reasonable customer expectations. Consider selecting an insurance plan to cover any damages or delays to your UPS shipping orders, and make sure you're prepared for any customer returns as the holidays wind down.
