MN Vehicle Tab Stickers Caught in 3M Global Supply Chain Delay

“what next?” Category of things that went wrong with global supply chain disruptions in: Minnesota Vehicle Registration Tab Sticker.

Or, more specifically: heavy-paper-like stock that’s mailed to you with your new sticker. According to state officials, the stock made by 3M is out of stock.

Even though the delay will affect hundreds of thousands of vehicles, whose registrations are due to expire in January, here’s the good news: State officials say that if everything goes according to the current plan, the renovator will be able to drive on time. will not be forced. With Expires tab. It’s just that the new registration stickers will take longer than usual to arrive in the mail.

“We want to encourage customers to be patient and wait for the sticker, often referred to as the “DMV,” said Pong Xiong, director of the Department of Driver and Vehicle Services for Public Safety. Is.”

Who is affected?

Here’s who’s affected: Owners of vehicles with registrations that expire in 2022 who renew online or by mail.

Xiong said some 52,000 registration renewals are already in the pike, and the department expects more than 320,000 additional renewals before the end of January.

Who is not impressed?

If your registration expires this month (or has already expired), you are not affected.

If your vehicle registration expires in 2022, but you renew in person at a deputy registrar or other licensing centre, you are unaffected and will be able to walk out with your new sticker.

what’s the problem?

The problem is the lack of that stock maintained by the 3M company and ordered by the state especially for the vehicles whose registration is expiring in 2022. In 2022, those stickers – which expire in 2023 – will be blue. The color of the sticker changes every year. (The stickers expiring next year — of which most of the license plates are sporting right now — are gold.)

When you renew your registration online or through the mail, that full piece of sturdy paper – along with the appropriately colored stickers – gets printed with your name and vehicle registration number. The sticker also gets printed with a unique serial number. That printing is done by MINNCOR Industries—an agency within the state’s Department of Corrections that uses prisoner labor to produce things like license plates and cabinets, and prints those stickers, too.

MINNCOR gets that strong stock from 3M.

3M: Back Up and Running

According to the Department of Public Safety, 3M has said that global supply chain disruptions from the coronavirus pandemic, along with an explosion and fire at one of its suppliers’ plants, have delayed fulfilling orders for that specific stock.

When you renew individually, those stickers are pre-printed and taken off a roll—a separate product. There is no shortage of that stuff.

In a statement Friday, the Maplewood-based company said: “3M is working with the state of Minnesota to deliver the products they need to provide license tags. We’re backing up and rolling out the products. We’re delivering over 12,000 tabs this afternoon and expect another 25,000 to 30,000 tomorrow. We’ll be shipping next week and throughout January to meet Minnesota demand.

Xiong emphasized that when you upgrade online or by mail, state computer systems — including law enforcement databases — are updated almost immediately.
