How Covid-19 affects your shipment

Report this content

(Recently updated 2020-03-17) We are working actively to ensure that your goods will arrive at your doorstep on time. Covid-19 creates new challenges every day and with those challenges follow a lot of uncertainty. We would therefore like to keep you up-to-date on what we DO know.

It is no secret that Covid-19 creates countless ripples in the pond that is our daily lives. We do not know how big “the iceberg” is but from our point of view, things are mostly business as usual. That may come as a surprise when the news is filled with headlines such as countries closing borders. Despite all of that, our shipments are moving steadily along.

No country has closed its borders for delivery of goods, whether that be imports or exports. In some cases, however, there are delays because of additional health controls at the border. We are keeping a close eye on all our shipments and will get in touch if anything changes. As always.

The Office
Nothing is more important than the health and safety of our staff. We follow the recommendations of the Ministry of Health (Sw. Folkhälsovårdsmyndigheten) to ensure a good and safe work environment. We are making the necessary preparations to enable our employees work from home, in case the recommendations are to change, to ensure that no delays occur.

1. Business as usual.

2. If your shipment is delayed, we will get in touch.

3. The transit time may be a bit longer than usual.

4. The article will be updated later in the week (today's date 2020-03-17)

Don’t be a stranger. Let us know if you have any questions.
