Another week in the books. Some big news: The next issue of Sent Items will be published from some new digs, as I tweeted Friday evening:
I realize it was rather witty, but I'm more surprised that a seemingly innocuous tweet garnered the reception it did (I had only a few more than 1,000 followers at the time). Maybe it's that dry wit... or the purple shutters. Nonetheless, one thing I’m most looking forward to is getting deliveries directly to my door. A nice change after living in high-rises for the past 16 years.
A quick PSA: I am working on a long-form article/blog post where I will be sharing my concerns with logistics bottlenecks on Q4 parcel volumes and capacity, and specifically honing in on the Postal Service. Obviously things have changed precipitously over the last 6 weeks since Louis DeJoy took the helm. My hope is to provide insights on what ecommece companies can do to help circumvent, or suppress the inevitable pain, and share insights on why I think this is happening right now. My plan is to publish in the next week. Please hit ‘reply’ if you have any thoughts or wish for me to review a certain aspect of this significant dilemma.
As always, please forward and share Sent Items here.
