This includes logistics, package safety, presentation, and cost-effectiveness of the packages. One of the most important things that manufacturers need to focus during the festive season is the timely delivery of products. Customers wait in anticipation for their orders to be delivered. It can be pretty frustrating for them if the packages are delayed. It might not be a big deal during any other time of the year, but it means a lot during the festive season.
