Delivery times Zemic Europe
Please find below our statement concerning Zemic Europe’s current delivery times.
We are currently experiencing longer delivery times, this is due to a number of factors:
Currently our production is running at 100% and we are fully operational to deliver the parts requested by our customers. We have noticed a large increase in the demand for load cells due to a scarcity of products in the market. This is a direct consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic and the geographical location of our factory. We are continuously working on production optimisation and production expansion to meet this demand. In addition, we ensure that extra stock is produced.
2 to 4 weeks longer ocean freight
Shipping companies have reduced ocean freight by 30% and containers are not returning to China. (Shanghai port). This creates a shortage of containers and shipping companies are constantly changing their routes. This causes longer, unreliable transport times, normally it takes 7 to 8 weeks and now it takes 8 to 12 weeks. We have experienced this in December, January, February and March we expect to experience it in April and May as well.
We are using all means of transport (boat, train, plane) to ensure that products are transported as quickly and efficiently as possible.
We hope that you can take this into consideration and we appreciate your understanding at this time.
This blog will keep you informed of the current situation.
