What are the disruptions you are experiencing in your supply chain?
Our supply chain has been disrupted by a number of factors beyond our control. The difficulties of Covid pandemic restrictions and their effects on staffing levels and freight processing are clear in many parts of the world. The pandemic has also contributed to a shortage in shipping containers and other equipment across the network.
In addition, there is shipping congestion around the world, particularly in the western United States but also in many other countries. Ships are facing congested ports all over the globe, often being forced to idle while awaiting berths. Following Brexit there is also a shortage of qualified heavy goods vehicle drivers to move freight once it reaches the UK. This combination of factors, together with some localised seasonal weather phenomena, has led to delays in shipping from many countries. Please be assured that our staff are working hard with our freight partners to ameliorate these difficulties wherever we can.
