It’s hard to think about Christmas when summer is upon us, but imports are currently taking 12-14 weeks for delivery, and as we approach our busy season we expect that lead time to grow. The truth is, a ready order has to get in line behind everyone else for that slow boat from China.
As of now, an order placed on July 1st would be scheduled to arrive in mid-October. A July 15 order may not arrive until sometime in November.
Every year we get “Where’s my order?” phone calls from customers who didn’t realize or think about the lead time on imports. Contact your customers and start planning your poly/paper/reusable import orders now.
