Shipping Delays Expected Once Again
As a fire alarm part supplier, one of the biggest challenges we faced last year due to COVID and Winter weather was a significant delay in shipping.
Fire alarm part manufacturers and their shippers are already warning of a fulfillment and shipping supply crisis starting this fall and into winter. Though already 18 months into this pandemic, the global supply chain continues to get squeezed as manufactures and ports continue to close now due to the Delta variant. As a result, shipping container companies expect prices to go up and longer delays in shipping. So how will this impact you?
As a fire alarm part supplier, one of the biggest challenges we faced last year due to COVID and Winter weather was a significant delay in shipping. While we continued to ship parts within 24 hours of being ordered, USPS, UPS, and FedEx all warned of delays. These delays were the most significant last November through January as our customers saw anywhere from a 2-8 week delay in getting the fire safety parts they needed. This impacted our customers’ ability to quickly address their fire system needs and get back to being open and fully operational.
Given the expected delays in shipping again, now is the time to take stock of your fire alarm part inventory and order the parts you may need. Come winter, customers can again expect to see a significant delay in shipping as transport companies manage COVID-related problems along with the increase in shipping demand due to the holiday season, and the inevitable winter storm.
