There are some further unexpected delays in the US as a result of Tropical Storm Isaias from last week – allegedly one of the strongest storms to reach the East Coast areas in years, causing extensive damage and power outages. The storm has impacted airlines, airline terminals, container freight stations, truckers, FEDEX, DHL, UPS and the Post Office deliveries around the affected areas, creating some challenges. 


Occasional delays of 2-3 days are still being experienced due to the current COVID-19 situation. We will keep you informed of any developments. 


Due to a reduction in flights because of the coronavirus, we are currently experiencing delivery delays of 1-3 days to the USA. We are working with our suppliers to resolve this and will keep you informed of developments.
