You might wonder…
What does the famous prayer Untanneh Tokef have to do with shipping?
The idea struck me earlier this year, that shipping is a lot like the very moving part of Untanneh Tokef. Just like in Untanneh Tokef there’s a list of circumstances effecting man and his future, shipping too can have other-then-anticipated results.
So, with this in mind, I thought to myself, “who will have damages and who will not, who will have issues with timing and who will not, who will have delivery problems (like long haul carry / goods that can’t fit in an elevator) and who will not, and who will have completely unforeseen experiences while others have a smooth move from door to door.
The painful part about this speculation was that all our customers are really great people and I want them to have only the best experience. I understand that G-d is in complete control of our shipments, and that everything is for the best, but still….
The good news is, since the beginning of the year we shipped about 37,000 cubic feet of goods with very, very minimal damages. Summer shipments went out weekly or biweekly and the little bumps in the road were smoothed out as they came along.
Overall, we are very, very happy and grateful for this years shipments and to be part of so many wonderful people’s lives.
May we all be inscribed and sealed in the Book of Life!
