AMMEX periodically asks customers for feedback on our online portal.
You may have already heard from us, or you may hear from us soon. The following is a summary of three common questions and concerns we have received.
Supply chain problems continue around the world. Everyday products of all kinds are in short supply, expensive, or both. Sellers are experiencing delays due to congested ports and container shortages.
Versatility is one of the major discussion points for selling vinyl disposable gloves. When you add exam-grade vinyl and synthetic hybrids to the conversation, the possibilities for use-cases expand even more.
If you’re working in a restaurant, you need protection for your hands. With eateries just reopening to indoor dining after a year-plus of coronavirus-induced shutdowns, hygiene is not a matter to be taken lightly. (Then there’s that whole cross-contamination thing, which also involves a lot of hand-washing.) Black synthetic vinyl is a great solution, especially for front-of-house wear.
Spring is here, and summer is just around the corner. COVID vaccinations are largely going well. Despite a potential fourth surge of coronavirus infections, and troubling developments in such places as Illinois and Michigan, optimism over reopening society is becoming more common.
Those in the business of disposable gloves should note that even with this encouraging news, the need for personal protective equipment is not going away.
The biggest vaccination campaign in history is under way. More than 535 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine have been administered across 141 countries, according to data collected by Bloomberg. The latest rate was roughly 14.5 million doses a day.
In the U.S., more Americans have received at least one dose than have tested positive for the virus since the pandemic began. To date, 143 million doses have been administered. In the last week, an average of 2.71 million doses a day were distributed, and at least 20 states have expanded vaccinations to all adults.
There are not a lot of bargains to be had these days. But we have one you might want to check out.
Value is a difficult thing to come by in today’s disposable glove marketplace.
With nitrile and latex prices going through the roof—and lack of availability only compounding the situation—finding a “go-to” glove that you can stick with is difficult.
AMMEX disposable gloves will come in a different wrapper starting this month, but don’t fret: They will still be the same great gloves.
Those who purchase disposable gloves from AMMEX in the coming weeks may notice a new look and feel for all of our packaging. The reason for this redesign is three-fold: We are aligning our brands, simplifying packaging layouts, and making them more presentable.
Imports of disposable gloves are currently being impacted by major backups in Asia-U.S. trans-Pacific trade.
Shipping container volumes along these routes have reached their limit. Massive congestion in the California ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach is forcing ocean carriers to cancel sailings—not because of lack of demand, but because ships are stuck awaiting berths.
Synthetic hybrid gloves provide a temporary solution to the high prices and shortages of nitrile disposable gloves in the first half of 2021.
The answers, as you might imagine, were quite varied. Ratings for the portal covered the spectrum from 1 to 10, and customers offered a variety of opinions on what it’s like to sell disposable gloves during a global pandemic. (We will go into more detail as we talk with customers and share their stories in this space over the coming weeks.)
