    This holiday season is unlike any other in modern times. The pandemic has left numerous restrictions in place that make it more difficult to plan a day shopping for gifts, and that’s led more people to turn to online retailers. And online retailers need someone to deliver their goods. It turns out, companies like UPS and FedEx are really starting to feel the crun<br>/p> reported Wednesday that both of the parcel delivery companies are facing a serious delivery van shortage. In other words, both need more as soon as possible and its partners have started to either lease vans, or purchase used ones. Brendan Keegan, CEO of Merchants Fleet which provides vehicles to delivery companies, told the publication that any and every van that is for sale isn’t off limits. The company needs them now.It’s been a perfect storm for a delivery van shortage. Every major automaker shut operations down earlier this year to slow the spread of COVID-19, and in the process, the automakers left a lot of supply off the table. At the same time, more people already started to lean on online retailers and home delivery for more goods as social distancing became the norm.

UPS confirmed these surcharges with Roadshow and 데이아 said, “While package volume and demand have created a tighter market for rental vehicles than in recent years, we are well-positioned to service the needs of our customers.” FedEx said in a statement, “FedEx has experienced a surge in package volumes due to the pandemic and now the holiday season. We have the ability to flex our network during periods of peak activity and have taken steps to secure our ability to deliver the best possible service this season<br>/p>Auto production is only now starting to return to pre-pandemic levels, but it might be a tad too late for companies that needed vehicles like the Transit yesterday. If anything, 데이아 the pandemic sped up the creation of a larger home-delivered goods economy, and it’s likely why startups and traditional automakers alike bank on to boost EV adoption. Heck, Rivian and 데이아 Amazon have a coming in unde<br>o years.
