Surviving peak season: How to thrive during Black Friday and Christmas

With record-breaking order volumes coming and shipping issues arising, it’s more important than ever to be well-prepared for peak season.

Our ebook gives you 5 easy tips for making the 2023 Peak Season, your best yet.

What our customers say

Black Bear Fulfillment was established in 2019, just before the COVID-19 pandemic struck.

“We didn’t move from one solution to another. We launched with Mintsoft and never even considered a different option because it has a lot of features that the competitors on the market simply don’t have.

The automation functionality makes everything a breeze. We’ve saved tonnes of time and money with just one feature - automated batch scheduling."

We decided that if we couldn't get Mintsoft, we wouldn't launch our business.
