Case Printing Solutions Moves Inventory to Prevent Eclipse-related Business Disruptions From Oregon

Monday, August 21, 2017

Press release from the issuing company

CORVALLIS, Ore. - Eclipse-related traffic has potential to shut down businesses involved with quick shipping. Case Printing Solutions moves a duplicate inventory to New Jersey to ensure all customers will still get speedy delivery of critical printing supplies.

Within the U.S. the areas where the eclipse will be most visible is called the "Path of Totality". This refers to a 50-mile-wide path that runs from Oregon in the Northwest, across the Midwest, and ends in South Carolina. (See image). Businesses located in and around the Path of Totality are scrambling to determine a backup plan for conducting business especially as it relates to shipping and receiving product. Oregon officials guess as many as 1 million people could converge on communities in the "Path of Totality" for what could be a once-in-a lifetime event.   

According to Case Printing Solutions president Rob Schneider, "Our local Chamber of Commerce has forecasted as many as 400,000 people coming to our college town of 50,000.  The governor is even calling out the National Guard – this is serious. We were nervous of our ability to meet customers' orders due to gridlock in our town and on Interstate-5. We didn't want to make our problem our customer's problem.

"Our customers buy ink to code products and packaging with critical dates and barcodes. If they are out of ink, the production line shuts down – not an option for our customers. To mitigate potential traffic issues, Case Printing Solutions has set up duplicate shipping, receiving, invoicing, & billing systems 2,000 miles away in the New York / New Jersey area as a precaution."
