A Key Player in the Delivery of Your Medications: United States Postal Service


In a recent newsletter titled, "Are Orders Being Delivered?", we advised customers of the current delivery times. These delivery times deviate markedly from our normal delivery times because of the coronavirus crisis. (For an overview of the issues the coronavirus crisis has created when it comes to supplying prescription drug orders, we encourage you to read the important update we circulated in March.)

… delivery time … partly depends on whether the item ordered is out of stock at the time the customer places their order.

The current delivery time from the point a customer places an order to delivery to the ultimate delivery address partly depends on whether the item ordered is out of stock at the time the customer places their order. As referenced in a previous newsletter, the significantly increased demand from consumers who've been stocking up on their prescription drugs has created disruptions in the pharmaceutical distribution chain worldwide, including supply disruptions within the United States itself. We just advised customers of the significant number of out of stock items, of which the list is growing daily. Once the ordered product has been sourced and brought into stock - which, depending on the product, may take a fair bit of time - it can be shipped.

… the United States Postal Service delivery timing is inconsistent at this time.

Once shipped, the transit time to ultimate delivery is affected by several variables. How long parcels queue before being onboarded to one of the limited available transport aircraft, delays at air transit hubs where parcels are transferred from one aircraft to another, backlogs for customs clearance and the ability of postal agencies to deliver parcels to your delivery address all play a role too.

With respect to the ability of postal agencies to deliver, we've observed and have been advising customers that the United States Postal Service delivery timing is inconsistent at this time. On some days, it seems that parcels are delivered quickly to a particular area once they've cleared customs but on other days it appears they are taking much longer. On some days, some customs-cleared parcels deliver quickly while those on route to the very same area are much slower to be delivered.

We noticed a local Michigan media outlet reporting on what USPS customers in many parts of the country have been experiencing. According to the The Oakland Press, "Detroit District Postal Service spokeswoman Elizabeth Najduch said all mail in the Detroit area is being delivered, albeit not as regularly as before." She also states that "'[w]e appreciate the patience of our customers and the efforts of employees as conditions change on a day-to-day basis.'" In a Facebook Post to The Oakland Press, a Michigan resident, Jackie Hovey, wrote, "'[w]aiting for my medicine for 20 days out tomorrow'". Though her post was not made with respect to any order from NorthWestPharmacy.com, we certainly empathize with her concern.

Several postal systems in other countries had to simply stop delivering international mail to their citizens altogether.

The good news is that parcels, including those shipped by NorthWestPharmacy.com, are being delivered and have been getting delivered by USPS since the inception of the coronavirus crisis. This is very positive given the upheaval caused by the coronavirus to worldwide logistics systems. We believe USPS is to be commended, considering the difficult circumstances involved in delivering massive volumes of letters and parcels while being short-staffed. Several postal systems in other countries had to simply stop delivering international mail to their citizens altogether. Yet, USPS is out there getting the job done in the United States, albeit with delays.

We know firsthand how difficult it can be operating during the coronavirus crisis. We've been working around the clock with considerable success to overcome the disruption to the international pharmaceutical supply chain, to secure limited air cargo space for transport, to carefully monitor and report on the longer times for customs clearance and last-mile delivery, and even to re-route orders due to the sudden lockdowns of entire nations through which we source products from. Plus, our call center has been re-configured to operate remotely from employee homes in the event any lockdown will prevent them from attending the physical call center. NorthWestPharmacy.com has been successfully taking, processing and delivering affordable prescription drugs throughout the entire coronavirus crisis. That's what we did before the crisis began, that's what we're doing now and that’s what we intend to do after the crisis is over. Our global reach and robust supply network mean that you're in the best hands you can possibly be in when you need safe and affordable prescription drugs delivered to your door.

We encourage customers who may need medications in the coming months to place their orders now and those whose pending orders await shipping to keep their orders active and in the queue, which ensures they are locked in at the original price quoted at the time of placing the order. That's beneficial to you because we've absorbed most of the coronavirus-related increases in product acquisition costs that we've faced to date but may be unable to do so for much longer. Also, the limited pharmaceutical supply, available cargo space for transport and customs clearances will all be allocated to customers on a first-come-first-served basis and it may be quite some time before worldwide drug supply and delivery systems return to normal. Until such time, orders are no longer being billed at the time they are placed. We will hold your billing information but you won't be billed until your order is dispensed by our pharmacists and ready to be shipped. But, if for any reason you are unable to wait, you can cancel and you won't be billed for any item that has not been shipped.

NorthWestPharmacy.com is one of the largest and most established online pharmacies providing lower cost medications from abroad to customers worldwide. No competitor offering lower cost pharmaceuticals from abroad can match our supply and delivery capacity during this difficult time so please rest assured we are leveraging all our capacity to ensure orders reach customers as fast as possible in the circumstances.
