There are multiple reasons for the delay. I: There are only two ports for container ships coming from China. They are Long Beach and Los Angeles (near some Amazon warehouse). Most of the ships will stop in L.A. port and need more time to wait unload containers. II: You need to call UPS to help you pick up from the port to Amazon once all of the containers are unloaded. But there are too many cargos need to deliver and pick up. This will result in UPS being understaffed. III: For shipment from China to the USA, there will be 30% of all containers required customs inspection. It will take 2-3 weeks even more. But you and your agent can't do anything except sitting and waiting for an update from the USA customs. There will be the Chinese New Year on 11 February and the holiday will take 15 days at least. You need to disrupt the time to arrange your production in China. It means from now, you just have 50 days to handle production and shipping. So you need to take care of your shipment from China and to avoid the delay. Because a delay will affect your rank and sale. Directly, you will lose a bulk of the funds.
