Shipments during a worldwide pandemic

We all agree that this pandemic has created a lot of difficulties.
A ton of companies are struggling with shipments and deliveries, because they depend on shipping carriers to deliver their goods, and also manufacturers to ship on time.

I read a lot of complaints, and wanted to write this article to explain a few things.

Do you think that companies like the delays?
Do you think that startups knew that a global virus will pretty much decimate all their efforts?
Do you think that companies don’t need and want to be successful and retain their revenue so that they can pay their employees who are struggling financially like so many of us?

So before you lash out at delivery delays and label any company a fraud, or a hoax, take a step back and think.
Put yourself in their shoes.
If you were the company’s owner trying to get answers from manufacturers and shipping companies, how would you react?
How would you save your company?

We have become consumer spoiled brats and expect instant gratification 100% of the time, without realizing what this means to those who try to serve our needs and purchases, especially during a global catastrophe.

So please be courteous, be patient and flexible.
NONE of our purchases (except for medication, food and life saving devices) are a life or death matter.

Show some respect, kindness and understanding.
Consider yourselves lucky not to walk in those business owners shoes!
