Shipping Update Mystic Supplies

Possible Shipping Issues This Holiday

11/11 Update: USPS has stated today they are raising rates on first class and priority again and it will be roughly a 7% increase. This could get worse if they shut down the Michigan pipeline! I will keep you updated if we have to raise shipping rates!

11/29 Update: knock on wood! We haven't had any issues with shipping. All companies are delivering on schedule or before :)

12/4 Update: Knocking on wood is working because we have had almost no issues this holiday season! Everything with both USPS and UPS is running very smooth! 

12/17 Update: Very minimal issues with delivery, however shipping deadlines for standard delivery are past.

In order to receive by Christmas, orders must be placed by Monday Dec 20th by noon (MST) and shipping must be USPS Priority Express or UPS 2 or 3 day delivery. 

We don’t use Fed Ex however someone I deal with just told me that Fed Ex has reported they are delivering about 83% of their packages. They are having a lot of issues with losing packages and they have serious labor shortages. They have warned this will get worse from here to Christmas. I am bringing them up to highlight the issues that we are facing this holiday season and ....

The post office (USPS) is also having serious worker shortages and have already warned of excessive delays in packages moving through the system.

UPS seems to be the only consistent shipper right now and they too are having some issues here and there. In the last month we have had a lost package and a seriously delayed package and that never happens!

**UPS is no longer accepting new customers so if you aren’t currently shipping UPS you might not be able to get an account. Because of the issues with Fed Ex and USPS, UPS is telling people no on new accounts because they cannot handle the volume.
