Shipping containers.
Anna Land, associate professor of supply chain management, says that because of supply chain issues around the world, you may want to start your Christmas gift shopping a little early this year, instead of waiting for Black Friday, Cyber Monday or even later. "Go ahead and start taking a look now because you might already see that items are already low in stock now, well before Christmas," said Land. The National Retail Federation estimates 49% of holiday shoppers will start buying gifts before November 2021, up from 42% in 2020.
