Online shopping, without the added element of the pandemic, was already outperforming in-person sales. With the pandemic still a concern, even more people are doing their shopping online. 76% of consumers prefer to do their holiday shopping exclusively online. And all these online orders, of course, need to be delivered. Which is great for distribution centers. As long as they can keep the process running smoothly.
Now’s the time to make sure operations are in place to keep the holiday season running smoothly. And in fact, 22% of shoppers already start their holiday shopping in October. So what are some steps you can take to keep holiday deliveries going smoothly and getting out on time? With more shifts and people coming and going on your campus, getting them out of their cars and where they need to be quickly is one of the most fundamental ways to improve productivity. And getting employees parked faster also means your roads are clear for trucks coming and going, and not congested with cars looking for somewhere to park.
How can you improve parking so that you reduce congestion and improve productivity? Parking guidance helps drivers know exactly where and when they can park. OpenSpace from Parking Logix is a simple plug-n-play system that gathers parking availability and shares it with your users. Data from OpenSpace can be shared on our VMS signs at your entrance or outside each parking lot or level. Each sign is customized to fit your parking structures and setup. You can also share parking data right on your website and on parking apps so that employees can plan ahead to find parking where it’s available.
Sorting, prepping, packaging, and shipping during the holiday season can be stressful. Parking shouldn’t be. Get your employees on every shift off to a stress-free start with easy to find parking. Check out OpenSpace and find out why so many companies help streamline parking with our intuitive parking counting system.
