Peak season is generally defined as the months leading up to the holiday season. August and September are big months for U.S. ports as eCommerce shippers are receiving imported goods for the holidays. With the impact of the eCommerce economy, fulfillment services continue active through the holidays as well. Because eCommerce has fundamentally changed peak season, customers expect to receive their shipment faster than ever, accurately and undamaged. The entire peak season experience can be quite a challenge.
