Major shipping companies have delayed orders from other manufacturers as Apple has issued for massive orders from China.
According to TechCrunch, Apple’s preparations for the upcoming holiday quarter are already causing a logistics nightmare for companies like FedEx and UPS, which are reportedly strapped for capacity after seeing a flood of bookings.
A spokesperson of an unknown company said that the orders are for a “special client” and they are already missing the deadlines. With very few corporations in need of such immediate high-capacity services, and even fewer coming out of China’s electronics manufacturing regions, Apple is thought to be behind the overflow.
Apple is expectedly launching the iPhone 6 and the much anticipated iWatch at a special media event on Sept. 9. Watch this space for a live blog!
