We are closely monitoring the situation with UPS and the negotiation with the Teamsters Union. If there were a work stoppage of any sort, everyone in the U.S. would feel the impact, simply because of the significant infrastructure that UPS provides in transportation.
While we feel optimistic that a deal will be completed prior to the August 1st deadline, we have planned contingencies in the event of a driver strike. Our contingencies include pivoting to our secondary in-house carriers and feeding volume into the FedEx domestic network, USPS, and select LTL carriers to deliver product to our customers. The ASB Team will continue to provide you timely updates. Thank you for your business and continued partnership.
