We analyze Santa Claus, this year has had more challenges than ever
This morning millions of children from all over the world woke up and found that the toys they wanted were under the tree or in their house. Santa Claus or Santa Claus arrived and made their dreams materialize. But this operation had many challenges behind it, most of them new for 2022.
What the kids don’t consider is that one of the best, largest and most complex production and distribution operations in the world is efficiently managed from the North Pole. Millions of children need millions of toys to be produced and delivered to their homes overnight. Something quite difficult to manage.
In addition, this year there were a series of special challenges, which complicated life, the lack of semiconductors and components, high energy prices and many others that made 2022 a difficult year for Santa Klaus, as it was for everyone.
The usual Santa challenges
Papa Noel or Santa Claus has a series of usual challenges in his usual activity, he enters once a year in all the children’s homes knowing what they want and delivers them to them. Above the physical and engineering challenges of distributing so many gifts Enough said in one night, but what about the challenges of producing and distributing so many gifts in one night? I have a series of doubts.
- The North Pole is the best place to produce when the largest industrial concentration in the world is in the province of Guangdong (Canton) in China? I guess the humid subtropical climate doesn’t sit well with gift-giving elves and that’s why better north pole
speaking of elves as workers Did the toy-making elves never mate? What is social bargaining at the North Pole?
The licenses: At first, children wanted and received handmade toys, but nowadays they want and have licensed toys from Disney, LucasFilm, Marvel, Pokemon, Nintendo, etc. To make things right I think many thousands should have studied patent law and negotiations.
Funding: We don’t know how Santa Claus is financed, but if he needed to go to the financial markets, this year he had to pay higher interest than in recent years.
Logistics: do not load the sleigh directly into the north pole Or do you use a large distributor’s logistics centers with warehouses and load it normally? It is also easier to distribute the gifts to strategically located warehouses before taking them to each child one by one than to start at the North Pole.
Privacy: Does the good and bad kids list comply with the EU GDPR? I don’t know what the different national authorities like the data protection agency think.
Santa’s challenges in 2022
Has the increase in the price of gas and electricity affected you in the toy production factories or do you use other types of energy?
Shortage of Semiconductors: Did you have problems getting all the components you need? Children increasingly demand electronic toys and they work on the basis of chips. The other option is that these components are manufactured “in house”, by the elves themselves, which makes them quite immune to this problem.
Sanctions on Russia: Is it a problem for Russian children to bring toys? After all, you are distributing in a country where Western companies have sanctions. I think your non-profit activity gives you an exception.
- Population growth: This year the world exceeded 8,000 million inhabitants, which means that this year there were more children than ever before and that production and distribution must have increased. However, this was a predictable change and I’m sure that in the north they are used to this challenge of having to distribute more gifts every year.
This is it a summary of what normal companies and Santa Claus faced this year with its production of gifts at the north pole. We assume that you are now resting after a hard night’s work and preparing for the challenges of 2023, which will not be few.
