    PEAK PERIOD OF FREIGHT FORWARDING AND ITS IMPACT

    Freight forwarding peak season: When is peak season? How to prepare for the peak period? and everything you need to know about the season.

    Peak season is the most challenging season for most freighters and loaders. It is the busiest time for shipping companies as demands usually outgrow normalcy within a limited capacity.

    It is widely proven that every last quarter of the year is the best season for shopping, by implication, freight forwarders are on the receiving side because they are responsible for the shipping of procured items to their final destinations.

    Within this period, freight forwarders are saddled with more responsibilities to satisfy the pool of questionnaires of ultimate concerns from the consignees who are in eager expectation of their deliveries.

    However, since this is an annual phenomenon, it is expected of freight forwarders to foresee possibilities of managing the season and keep the consignees abreast of the experience ahead.

    As a responsive freight forwarder, we present to you some of the likely scenarios around the peak time as we approach another peak season of the industry. Some of which are;

    Pricing at this Time

    It is worthy of note that at this period of the season, freight rates are updated weekly. Carriers and airlines update their freight rate on a weekly basis. The higher the booking, the more competitive the rate becomes.

    Flight Scheduling

    This is another challenge of the peak season. Cargo plane schedules are likely to change regardless of probability of schedules on the account of space congestion. Rescheduling of flight becomes an option owing to airline cancellation of initial schedule. Congestion of space of airlines is a normal nature of the season. However, we are always on top gear to deliver within the nearly expected time.

    Warehouse Congestion

    The space at the warehouse always becomes limited at the peak season since shipping of items, packages are delayed. However, it is encouraged to quicken your suppliers’ engagement for a timely operation as we advise proper packaging of consolidated items to avoid missing packages.
