Preventing Network Downtime during Black Friday
The shopping spree starting on Black Friday, rolling over to Cyber Monday is one of the most critical times for Logistics centers, optimized distribution networks, and Supply Chain Management. During this period special deals are offered, new products are launched, and the shopping websites themselves invest in increasing the volume of purchases. But this year is going to be different: because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Black Friday will not be an in-store shopping event, the business will only be online. This means reaching out to a potentially higher number of customers placing orders online, that could be translated as an enormous number of packages that need to be sent trough-out the world. Unfortunately, along with the opportunities, come the risks.
