Delivering spoiled or less-than-fresh product can be disastrous to you, your customers and your brand
With only one month left of Spring, we are (finally) seeing some lovely warm days come our way. Here at Sancell, experience tells us there is a significant peak in demand of Sancell Gel Packs, Thermal Bags and Thermal Liners during this hot and chaotic time.
For our customers who ship temperature sensitive or perishable products, we know companies cannot afford to be caught short with their Cold Chain consumables during the hot, summer months. Delivering spoiled or less-than-fresh product can be disastrous to you, your customers, your brand and ultimately your reputation.
Our advice to avoid being caught short this summer?
1). Include a buffer! When ordering your Cold Chain consumables we recommend ordering 10-15% beyond your forecasted usage. (If you don’t use them straight away, you’ll use them in the new year)
2). Where possible, get in touch with your customers to understand potential changes in their usage during the hotter months
3). Be sure to factor in any promotions, sales or special deals. Order accordingly with time to spare if possible
4). Include Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Boxing Day and New Year sales in your forecasting calendar
5). Allow for potential delivery delays when placing your order. These are often beyond the control of Sancell and while we do our very best, delivery delays can occur during this high-demand time! Placing your order a day or two early can make all the difference
