Preparing for Peak Season

At ILG we start peak season planning as early as possible. In the world of e-commerce, having a defined plan of action for your fulfilment ahead of time can make a real difference. Preparations begin as early as January, so our fulfilment experts have plenty of time to align our processes before order volumes climb in October. 

Getting a headstart with your Golden Quarter fulfilment will ensure you’re in the perfect position for the busiest shopping period of the year.
