Lita: Moonsaults

Freight Company Failure

The freight company that we use for some of our shipments sometimes has to rely on "connecting" carriers for communities that are in outlying areas. The big national company, can't necessarily reach some of the areas people tuck themselves away at!

Normally this is fine, it does make shipping time a bit longer to those places. Typically those places only receive deliveries on specific days each week. The estimate for this order was 5 shipping days, which is about 2-3 days longer for the regional delivery. Not horrible and most people in outlying areas like this completely understand the situation they're in.

I shipped out an order on July 18th and well today is August 7th.
