Advisory: Shipping and Manufacturing Delays

Nov 1, 2022

Thank you for being a valued partner and your patience as we’ve been working through inventory delays. We’re hopeful that by early 2023, most of our items will be fully back in stock.

Global Protection has been experiencing extended shipping times from our manufacturing facilities to our warehouse due to various global circumstances, such as the ongoing conflict in Ukraine and the impact COVID-19 lockdowns in China and other countries had on the supply chain, and the consequent port congestion at various shipping ports around the world.

For example, due to the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, vessels that would otherwise ship through to Russia have instead stopped at the Bremerhaven port in Germany, causing significant congestion at the port for vessels that would otherwise make a brief stop there.

Additionally, a global aluminum shortage has impacted condom supply. Our manufacturing facilities continue to work diligently for alternative sources where available, but, as aluminum is used in condom foils, manufacturing delays have occurred. 

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we adapt to these exogenous constraints. While global circumstances continue to evolve at a rapid pace, our customer service team is making every effort to provide the most up-to-date information possible.
