The truck carrying one-ton totes of soy-based pig feed is traveling a not-uncommon commercial route this month from Minneapolis to Des Moines, Denver, Albuquerque, New Orleans, Jacksonville, Washington D.C., Buffalo, and Chicago.

It will take 21 days to cover 9,660 kilometers across 14 states and its journey and purpose had to be approved by the U.S. Department of Agriculture before a wheel was turned.

Plan Ahead! Expect Shipping Delays!
Due to COVID-19 safety precautions affecting the production of tags, as well as slower shipping times with all carriers, there may be a delay in fulfilling and shipping your tag order. Please plan to add an additional 10 to 15 days to produce and ship your order – which means orders could take up to 25 days from the date ordered for delivery with standard shipping. (Under normal circumstances, it takes about 10 to 15 days to receive your order.)

We encourage you to plan ahead and allow for the additional shipping times. Please reach out to the WLIC Team if you have any questions or concerns.
