Yeah I have a theory (based on nothing really except status updates posted here) that they dropped a bunch of containers or trailers and stuffed them full and still haven’t cracked them open yet because the new stuff coming in is too much for them to deal with. Some people have reported that shipments from a month ago are sitting and not checked in but shipments to the same warehouse a couple weeks later were processed (slowly) before the “stalled” shipments.
If they won’t even accept UPS packages you know they are out of room–even in containers/trailers.
I will say this now…this could possibly be an issue this holiday season. Hopefully they clear the logjams way before that but right now nothing is a given. They had to “push back” the Prime Day sale because they knew they couldn’t handle any additional volume right now.
That might end up being canceled altogether or really downsized.
It seems that Amazon does not have the ability to even focus on the quicker moving items and instead is just randomly allowing stuff in that may just sit.
They need to start being honest with FBA users, Marketplace sellers and the media/public about the warehouse situation and how delayed they are, when they expect it to get better (and why), etc.
