The coronavirus pandemic has caused widespread shipping delays since early 2020, which begin with procurement, according to Bloomberg. The problem is experienced across the board, is not specific to any company, and is impacting businesses around the world, the outlet said. The supply chain problem and increased demand for shipping services due to COVID-19 are causing delays and, unfortunately, can continue through 2021, Bloomberg reported.
“Global supply chains are a mess,” Bloomberg reported. “There are shortages in a bunch of different products and components, which are further compounded by massive delays and traffic jams in shipments and other forms of transportation.”
FedEx directly addresses these delays and informs customers of shipping delays on their website.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has created record shipping volumes,” the website says. “As more and more people shop online to avoid the crowds in the stores, these numbers have increased further. This has created shipping volumes that weigh on logistics networks nationwide, which can lead to delays. “
FedEx also has a money-back guarantee for its FedEx Express services, the website says. It was reinstated on April 6, 2021.
“As of April 6, 2021, the money back guarantee will be reinstated for certain FedEx Express services for import / export shipments to the United States and the United States,” the website says.
