· Due to uncertainty in the market, there was a lot of panic buying. Due to the increase in demand, this caused manufacturers to get backlogged with production.

· Manufacturers prioritized production of A & B items, while in some cases, C and D products were not placed in production causing further delays on certain products.

· Due to fulfillment issues, some manufacturers canceled backorders without notification causing further delays.

· Due to the increased cost of fuel and raw materials, this is having a direct impact on the cost of products.
