Important Information, Not Marketing: The Triple Whammy of Covid-19 When It Comes to Pharmaceuticals

Reminder: You can now upload all required documents, including your prescription, online and direct from your customer account when placing orders with us. You can continue to email, fax or mail them to us too.
This Isn't Marketing, It is Important Information

Some customers may think the information we provide in our newsletters about the factors that impact their supply of prescription drugs due to the pandemic is marketing information designed to stimulate sales. As skeptical consumers ourselves, we can appreciate why people might be inclined to believe this.

But that is not the case at all. Most of our business comes from orders for long-term prescription maintenance medicines which are typically ordered on a regular schedule by our customers. We have not convinced customers to buy these drugs; their physicians have. Sooner or later, most will come back to order their refills so long as we continue to provide the savings, safety and service our customers deserve and have come to expect from us. Whether a customer orders now or waits a little while does not really impact our sales.

… we tend to report factors affecting prescription drug supply, pricing and delivery logistics before the media does because our direct experience often means we are the first to know.

Our notices about the various factors affecting the supply and delivery of prescription drugs worldwide are for the benefit of customers so they can plan ahead. We do not want our customers to be in a position where the cost of drugs, the procurement of inventory or delivery times could be more negatively impacted than they already are today and we believe it is our duty to diligently inform customers of the risk of this happening.

The information we provide comes from our extensive direct experience in procuring prescription drugs and arranging delivery logistics. We keep an eye on the media to see if they are reporting matters that validate our direct experience and we provide those articles to you as links. Those who regularly follow our newsletters since the pandemic began can attest that we tend to report factors affecting prescription drug supply, pricing and delivery logistics before the media does because our direct experience often means we are the first to know.

The Triple Whammy to Pharmaceuticals Due to the Coronavirus Crisis

Potential Price Increases

The pandemic has sent the cost of producing finished dosages of various pharmaceuticals soaring. Raw material, operating and transportation costs have jumped so we caution that consumers could face price increases of pharmaceuticals worldwide.

Prescription Drug Shortages

Covid-19-related shocks to integrated pharmaceutical production systems have led to serious concerns being expressed by drug manufacturers, the American Medical Association, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and pharmacists in the United Kingdom and Canada about the disruption in the supply of pharmaceuticals since the coronavirus crisis began. In this regard, we recently featured a Canadian pharmacist on the television news confirming prescription drug shortages, 'across the board'. The Wall Street Journal just featured an article on this topic too.

Impacts to Logistics Systems

Millions of parcels from companies in different industries worldwide are delivered by international postal mail in the cargo areas of commercial airlines just like those from are. With most passenger flights grounded worldwide, so too is the cargo capacity they once delivered.

The scarcity in capacity has skyrocketed the cost of air cargo transport while the United States has imposed increases to the cost of last mile delivery on other mail systems delivering parcels to the United States and this has compounded the increased cost of delivery during the pandemic.

Also concerning are the recently announced cutbacks at USPS which could further slow down mail delivery.

Take Advantage of Our Potentially Time-Limited Reduced Shipping Fee

Despite the increase cost of shipping we are paying, we've reduced our shipping fee to help minimize the impact on our customers and make it easier to order their medications now. But we do not know what further Covid-19 surcharges or other rate increases we will face in the coming weeks so we may only be able to maintain the lower shipping fee of today for a limited time.

As a customer of, you have a distinct advantage during times of drug shortages as a result of our exceptional ability to procure difficult to source products and the good news is that has been successfully taking, processing and delivering affordable prescription drugs throughout the entire coronavirus crisis and continues to do so.

So please take advantage of the potentially time-limited reduced shipping fee and don't wait for product price increases, more pharmaceutical shortages or delivery systems to experience further delays as the coronavirus is spreading again. We encourage customers who may need medications in the coming months to place their orders now.
