Shipwire attended Toy Fair 2009 in New York. Nate has posted his insights on his Practical E-commerce blog as Learning from Toy Fair 2009. Nate discusses Toy Fair attendance and insights into how small toy makers can make shipping toy fulfillment a strength during trying economic times. Some trends discussed on Practical Commerce were:
- Toy retailers buying smaller amounts, requesting more frequent resupply and not wanting to take on the risk of inventory.
- Toy packaging and its impact on fulfillment
- Manufacturer drop ship fulfillment options for Toy makers
