Berkley Asset Protection: 12 Tips For Successful Holiday Shipping In The Delay-Filled Season November 03, 2021 (0 comments)


New York, NY—The pandemic has led to a significant increase in the daily volume of packages shipped globally and this influx has resulted in delays for delivery.

This also makes it difficult for the sender to follow up with the recipient to confirm delivery.
