Convey surveyed over 1,300 U.S. consumers to uncover expectations of and plans for holiday shopping in 2021. The results make it clear: this year’s shoppers feel the lasting impact of COVID-19 on the supply chain.

Delays are expected, but offering real-time visibility and proactive communication when slowdowns occur can deliver loyalty alongside gifts under the tree.
