COVID-19 and Shipping Delays
You know it, we know it - COVID-19 has impacted nearly every industry and this includes the shipping industry.
Coupled with short staffing, our shipping partners have seen huge, holiday-like spikes in volume. For context, online sales across all e-commerce industries for May 2020 were more than $82 billion. This is an almost 80% increase over May 2019. Additionally, social distancing protocols that courier companies and shipping centers alike have adopted to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and keep their employees safe have further impacted the speed of these services.
Simply put, our shipping partners have been dramatically affected by this pandemic.
If your package is late...
Tracking info may not update, but usually, with a little extra time and patience, we've found that packages that are running behind have arrived within a week or two. If you have not seen your package up to two weeks after your expected delivery date, we recommend reaching out to the carrier (USPS, UPS, or FedEx), or contact us for additional help.
