Hard work because of Black Friday

There is a page: Today the bargain hunters get their money. On Black Friday, a large with power, now part of the well-known Swiss retailers, in any Form. They offer consumers considerable discounts and boost your Christmas business. To not be at the start of the Christmas business, it seems, for many traders no Alternative.

And then the other side: All the online ordered Tablets, clothes and perfumes, there is need to be sent. Because this is part of the deal. Who is hunting on Black Friday bargains, expected the goods as soon as possible at home.

What sounds like a Courant normal – finally, many online traders are also under the year, a quick service delivery – has an impact on the supply chain. Black Friday brings the Postal and other delivery services to you in distress: you put the promise of fast delivery. And need to prepare are, therefore, significantly higher parcel volumes. This means mainly: Overtime for salaried employees.

At the Swiss Post is a heads-up. In the past year, the Post has been processed in the week around Black Friday and in Switzerland less widespread Cyber Monday 7 million packages. About 1 Million packages, more than in the last two weeks before Christmas – the time provided in the past for record amounts. This also means that the processed peak times daily for up to 1.4 million packages. This corresponds to approximately the Double of a normal day, say it in a Blog Post.

No holidays, and Temporary

For the employees this means, for example, that you can refer to during these days, no holidays or compensation days. The corresponding scheme is described in the overall work of the contract and "of the employees, broadly accepted," says a spokesman for the Post.

But this falls far short of the amounts of cover. In the package centers around 30 per cent additional to be temporarily brought in employees. The employees have to be extended also on Saturday in the pants, and the working time in the Centres. Compensated for the work and not be on a Friday during the week, a financial incentive there is for the Saturday work.

in Addition, the Post 400 delivery rent vehicles to bring everything in a timely manner customer to. This morning Saturday and the Saturday before Christmas.

at Least in the package area, Swiss Post must deliver as well. The market is liberalized, and also other companies are competing for the large customers. And just like the Post about the DPD must reckon with a rush. "On a normal day we handle around 75'000 packages, on Black Friday, we expect this year, with approximately 93'000 packages, and on Cyber Monday even with approximately 123'000 packages," says a DPD spokeswoman. Therefore, additional cars and the deliverer shall make settlement. The work shifts are longer.

Similarly, the employees of the private post-party quick mail work Overtime. There is expected to Black Friday with 50% more parcels than in a normal week, as it says on request. Quick mail is a little happy about the rush after the Black Friday. Managing Director Christof Lenhard says: "We can cope with the volume tight, but we believe it is economic nonsense, in weeks with already a large demand for these with discounts in addition to fuel."

That the package suppliers for the bargain hunting pressure, shown on the example of UPS. There will be required during the Peak Season, the company announced on its Website the weeks before Christmas, for the delivery of large or bulky packages for more money.
