Potential UPS Strike - Prepare for Shipping Disruptions

Posted By: Jen Deming Industry News,

There is a possibility of a UPS strike when the current Teamsters contract expires at the end of July, which could impact businesses in the coming months.

While there is hope for a peaceful resolution through negotiations, it is crucial to be prepared for potential disruptions to your shipping operations. To minimize the impact on your business, we recommend taking the following steps:


  • Plan ahead for inventory needs. Evaluate your stock levels, anticipate demand, and ensure you have sufficient inventory to sustain your business during a potential strike period.
  • Open a FedEx Account if you don’t currently have one. Having an alternative shipping provider, such as FedEx, will offer you additional options and flexibility during this uncertain period.
