1 – Shipping Delays:
Global shipping volume has increased during the COVID-19 pandemic and has put a strain on the world’s ports and logistics networks. Bottlenecks are occurring at multiple points and are delaying both inbound and outbound shipments and substantially increasing freight costs. Booking a container can take a month or more vs. a few days in 2019.
2 – Material Costs:
Price increases in lumber and other raw materials has greatly impacted our factories and resulted in unprecedented price increases.
3 – Labor:
Some regions on the world have and continue you to be impacted by COVID-19 and
derivatives of the virus. Factory labor force can be cut in half or less due to the virus greatly
impacting production and resulting in long delays.
We are working with our manufacturing and logistics partners to provide the highest quality
service while maintaining the safety and well-being of their employees. We ask for your patience
as our factories and carriers navigate these difficult circumstances and thank you for your
