Why is it, for every overseas ISDE the containers never make it in time? This year the same thing happened again.:(

Has anyone been pointing fingers as to whose fault it is? Is it the same shipping company as last year? From some of the stuff I've heard about the AMA backing of the ISDE, it's amazing we even have a team.

Truly amazing

It takes exactly 87 days for a container of product from the factory in Poland to reach our plant in NY. We also have tracking software that tells us where the container is at all times. We know this is the lead time and use this as a basis for re-ordering product. If for some reason there happens to be a problem, a whole container can be shipped air-freight (big $) and be here in two days.

Maybe we need to contact Tony Soprano about the shipping of Team USA's container. :scream:

Containers between Europe and the US take "about" 30 days. The real unknowns become the processing of the paper-work and Customs clearance at the destination country. Sounds like our boys must be trying to cut this too close if they keep having the same problems.
