Beginning Aug. 15, IOTA will be transitioning its Columbus, Ohio, shipping operations to expanded facilities in nearby Newark, Ohio. IOTA expects the new Ohio shipping facilities to be fully operational by Aug. 27.
IOTA says that during this period, all orders will be fulfilled from our West Coast facilities while current inventory is transferred to the new location, and urges customers to be aware of this schedule as it may affect usual delivery times.
Once the new facilities are established, IOTA will resume servicing East Coast customers from the new Ohio location.
"We are confident that this transition will prove to be beneficial for our customers seeking optimal inventory access and turnaround time," the company says. "If you should have any questions, do not hesitate to contact your IOTA Customer Service Team. We will be happy to assist you in making certain your delivery schedules are fulfilled as needed."
