why supply chain is broken and everything costs to much, if not NLA as a result


Recommended Posts

every entity lines THEIR pockets and then trys to cheat everyone else.

Last  year ordered a piece of glass,requiring $150 "special" shipping, took 12 days and arrived in a too large , punch-ed single wall box NO packing.

Was not permitted to order from atlanta dealer,with it SETTING in the atlanta warehouse.

was sent 1500 miles the wrong direction, over 12 days to the iowa transfer depot.then BACK east.

Along the way they kept taking the lowest bids,and handled it at least 58 x on /off/trucks/dock.


ordered a 2# package last week, 3 days on any snail map......but again there is huge profit in constant handling,or traveling 6 miles INSIDE the sorting center for days.

In the famous words of our ex president.

"I feel your pain"

I sometimes search for hours for a part on the interweb. Order it. Wait days for it to ship. Then get lost in someplace it never should have gone...

I bought 2 powerfist seats for the jk, princess auto flyer, got the flyer thursday, the seats are corbura/ricaro style but 1/4 the price, phone the stores, two on the lower mainland one store has 4 copilot seats, one store has three pilot seats, but the sale doesnt start til the following tuesday, but the interweb says they come instock on monday, so I put them on my wish list and first thing monday morning I go and put them in my cart, running with paypal they are bought and paid for, next morning I get notification they are shipped (free shipping over a buck) I figure one from langley and one from coquitlam, each place is ten miles away,   NOO NOO NOO POSTAGE BREATH............

One is coming from st. Johns newfoundland, the other is coming from calgary alberta, a week of travel for both of them, I wasnt in a hurry at all but this just made me laff and laff and laff, well you get it.
