Covid 19

The COVID-19 pandemic has left a significant impact on the global supply chain for PPE that will most likely continue into 2021. 

 

POSS is doing everything we can to keep our employees and customers safe during the pandemic. We are always tracking updates and new developments to alter our procedures so they are the safest they can be. POSS will continue to provide our customers with exceptional service and supply them their products promptly in times when they need it most.

Things You Need to Know

Ocean Carrier Issues

  • Ocean carriers are suffering lengthy delays from Asia to North America

  • Shipping capacity is at its highest level since January

  • Carriers are fully booked, resulting in many shipments rolling into future months

Manufacturing Lead Times

  • Lead times are still being extended

  • Demand remains at 60% above production capacity

  • Lead times are also being affected by peak season shipping constraints

Inventory Impacts

  • Some manufacturers, especially glove manufacturers, have had to streamline their products. Meaning they went from making 20 lines to 5 lines. Even though they have reduced their products because demand is so high, they still are unable to get ahead in production.

Supply Availability

Product allocation measures remain in effect for many of the product categories listed below. POSS continues to work closely with impacted manufacturers to obtain product in a timely manner and to stay aware of production and supply availability changes. 

We continue to see longer than usual lead times and fluctuating inventory and ETAs for these product categories, so please double check availability before placing your order. Some orders that contain items in impacted categories may be subject to be non-cancellable and/or non-returnable.

We will do our best to keep you informed, and we thank you for your continued understanding and support.

Impacted Categories:

  • Alcohol prep pads

  • Disinfecting solutions and wipes

  • Face shields

  • Facial tissue

  • Gloves (sterile and non-sterile)

  • Hand sanitizers, soaps, and dispensers
