Shipping Crisis? Order Now for On-time Christmas Delivery, Here’s Why

shipping boxes

More and more shoppers are moving to online shopping. The expansion of the eCommerce universe has exploded since the arrival of the pandemic. Already major shipping suppliers are warning there may be shipping delays this holiday season. A recent article in the Wall Street Journal stated that major carriers FexEx and UPS both expect to be pushed to beyond full capacity.

Because Red Oxx is a bag manufacturer, unless the gear you’re interested in is in-stock, there is a lag time to build your order. Generally this is between three to five business days. For the Red Eye Collective Special Edition Colors, being offered again this year for a limited time, the wait can be up to two weeks before shipping.

The wise Red Oxx shopper should plan to gather their wish list together and place your orders as soon as you can. Now, preferably.

Here is the forecasting from FedEx for their holiday shipping schedule.

While these are their published expectations for "last days to ship for Christmas delivery" Red Oxx highly recommends getting your orders in far in advance of the cut-off dates listed because we don’t want to "Grinch" anyone.

USPS – Priority Mail – Monday December 14th

Fed Ex Ground – Wednesday December 16th

Fed Ex Express Saver – Friday December 18th

Fed Ex 2 Day Saver – Monday December 21st

Fed Ex Overnight Services – Wednesday December 23rd
