Prepare for Shipping Disruptions
We have an important matter to bring to your attention that could impact your business in the coming months. There is a possibility of a UPS strike when the current Teamsters contract expires at the end of July.
While we remain hopeful for a peaceful resolution through negotiations, it is crucial to be prepared for potential disruptions to your shipping operations. To minimize the impact on your business, we recommend taking the following steps:
Plan ahead for inventory needs. Evaluate your stock levels, anticipate demand, and ensure you have sufficient inventory to sustain your business during a potential strike period.
Open a FedEx account if you don’t currently have one. Having an alternative shipping provider, such as FedEx, will offer you additional options and flexibility during this uncertain period.
