Shipping Delays

We are currently experiencing unprecedented delays with incoming shipments from both European & US manufacturers


Covid 19 is the obvious start but unpredictable fluctuations in container prices, bottlenecks at ports and the knock on effect of the Suez crisis has created a perfect storm for global supply chains. And of course, Brexit.

The global nature of the shipping sector, and the lack of spare capacity within it, means that problems in one region can have ripple effects around the World.

As a result, delays started with our manufacturers struggling with steel imports and sourcing components such as motors and bearings and we are now feeling the effects.

We understand these delays also effect your products and projects, however, we can only apologise for delays that are simply out of our control.

We are doing all we can moving forward to increase stock levels and provide accurate lead times for planning and multiple solutions for our clients to provide continuous hassle free business with us.

Thank you for your patience
