Is It Beneficial To Charge A New Car Battery Before Installing It In A Car

Let’s assume the person buying it does mostly short trips, so it might be awhile before a long highway drive happens in which the alternator would charge the battery really well. So do these short trips charge a brand new battery enough, or is it better to put it on a charger first?

I’m figuring most batteries sit around for months between the time they’re manufactured and the time they’re purchased.

Thanks!
