The events of the past couple of years have created major ripple effect challenges for, manufacturing, and warehousing facilities.
Many are working with reduced staff for health and safety and some facilities are catching up from having to shut down altogether in the last couple of years.
More recently, however, we’re seeing warehouses at maximum capacity and manufacturing can’t keep up with demand, which is causing a longer delay for new inventory.
New world events are continuing to change the shape of how business is conducted, MDL is doing its very best to be competitive in the marketplace for you our customers.
Our logistics team is starting to prep your order for shipping! This process typically takes between 5-7 business days (not including weekends and public holidays). but can take longer during heavy order periods
Note on Shipping Delays:
MDL only offers shipping through UPS & USPS who are the best and most reliable shipping partners. However, with the changes everyone has experienced, even the best shipping partners are experiencing and reporting delays.
Please understand we are all doing our very best to overcome these challenges and deliver your orders as quickly as possible.
Be advised that the above-mentioned timeline is only an estimate. We cannot guarantee exact delivery times as potential delays in your country’s customs process or unforeseen circumstances and situations beyond ours or the courier’s control (e.g adverse weather conditions, etc) can occur.
