9/2/2020: We have seen a slight improvement in UPS Ground services over the past few weeks, and we are hopeful that more accurate and timely deliveries will continue to occur. Many standard orders that ship from Darby have not experienced significant delays; in fact, the longest delay we have seen in the past week has only been 1-2 days. We’ll continue to monitor this and keep you posted.

Freight carriers like A Duie Pyle, UPS Freight, Fed Ex Freight, and other carriers have also improved their deliveries over the last few weeks. Again, we’ll continue to monitor and report what we are seeing. Thank you. We are in this together.
