Lead times are often measured from the initiation of a project until it’s execution and can always vary and change depending on your product or packaging. At Roberts, we provide customization to you and our clients. To get a better understanding of lead times and how they can affect your anticipated timeline, below is a guide to common lead times seen throughout the process.
Common Lead Times
– Development: Normally about a month
– Once the PO (purchase order) is placed we receive PPS (pre-production samples) for you to approve: about two to three weeks
– Once PPS is approved we move into production: about 60 days
– Shipping on water:
- About four weeks to get to port and a few days for the trucking company to deliver (for delivery to the West Coast)
