Default Manufacturers monthly release shipping delays

It seems that ever since the beginning of summer, releases have been arriving extra late to retailers from all manufacturers. What used to be announced at the beginning of the month would arrive at the end the month or first week of the next month. But now it seems that we’re having to wait an entire month maybe month and a half to have new releases arrive to us. Has this always been the case or just due to the pandemic’s worker/supply shortages and shipping delays?

due to pandemic worker shortage/materials/shipping/customs delays etc. can only get worse.

65 cargo ships are awaiting berths in the ports of LA and Long Beach for their cargo. Backlog is quite long.

I believe that is the biggest backlog they’ve had in a while, if not ever. Definitely won’t be helping matters for new Gemini releases for the time being.

They're worth waiting for generally.

And some of those ships surely have diecast model airliners on their manifests. Covid 19 is gumming up the works in unimaginable ways, Doug

Shutting down complex global systems is easier than starting them back up again, it seems.
