LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Are you preparing to click away in search of Cyber Monday deals? Cyber Monday is the busiest time for fulfillment centers all over the country, including Radial, located in South Louisville.
It's basically Santa's warehouse.
"We spend 50 weeks out of the year planning for these next two weeks," Brad Kennedy said. Kennedy is the site director at Radial's Louisville campus.
During this time of the year, it's box after box, order after order, non-stop.
"Everybody's chasing that wallet and they want to make sure they're the first to the sale," Kennedy explained.
The corporate race to the holiday dollar keeps the folks at Radial busy. They're the ones who fulfill your online purchases, finding the items, filling the boxes and putting the labels on. At this point, they're bracing for what's going to be the most fast-paced day of the year.
"Cyber Monday is still projected to come in this year about 40 percent larger than what we see off of Black Friday and Black Friday was a record day for us," Kennedy said.
Their holiday game plan starts long before we even begin to think about snow. 6,000 seasonal employees jump in to help.
"We look at a lot of efficiency, a lot of activity, we start hiring people in September to train them and we're Santa's helpers here," Kennedy said.
This labor of love to ensure what you click is exactly what you get.
"Once you click on that product, a process starts with numerous people touch that product, handle it, get it ready for you on time," Kennedy said.
Because nothing beats a speedy delivery, happiness—guaranteed.
