EAGLE UPDATE: PREORDER YOUR ICE MELTER
We have prepared this update to inform you about the current state of the supply chain, and the winter weather outlook for the 2021 – 2022 season in order to show you how this could impact ice melter orders.
WINTER 2021 - 2022 WEATHER OUTLOOK:
According to the Farmers’ Almanac, the Great Lakes region can expect an icy and flaky winter season. The Farmers’ Almanac is predicting potent winter storms for our region during the second week of January, the final week of February, and the second week of March.
CURRENT SUPPLY CHAIN STATUS:
There is still a high demand for shipping container space, with rates at heightened costs. A lack of containers, due to continued container congestion at ports, slows items from leaving ports. The coronavirus continues to cause gaps in workforce at ports, which contributes to congestion. Additionally, continued truck driver workforce shortages are creating disruptions and slowing shipping times of items reaching their destinations.
Although these external factors are beyond our control, we have proactively secured inventory and will continue to use our purchasing power and strategic manufacturer sourcing to ensure adequate stock levels are in place. Due to all of the supply chain volatility, we highly recommend that you preorder ice melter before winter weather arrives (don’t wait until it’s here!) so that you will have your product in time. We greatly appreciate your partnership and cooperation. We want everyone to be prepared and stay safe this winter season.
