As the world gets moving again, it’s clear that the global supply chain has been impacted like never before. What started as a fallout of the Covid-19 pandemic has sparked a domino effect of backlogs and congestion across container terminals globally, resulting in industrywide shipping delays. Even the biggest and most efficient ports like Singapore, have felt the impact of these ripples.

Here’s a great explainer video on the current situation from The World Economic Forum:

Port of Hong Kong

We are here to help – just as we have done for the past 25 years.

Like most shipping companies, we too have been affected by this – with some of our containers currently stuck in Singapore due to the ongoing industrywide hold-up’s. This is the first time in 25 years that we have experienced this and we hope to see a sense of normalcy return soon.

As an immediate impact of this situation, some of our shipments to locations like UK, Australia, and South Africa have been affected. We want you to know that we are doing everything we can to have shipments arrive as close to the transit time quoted, using the best route available, even as these bottlenecks continue to persist.

Today’s delays are new to us, but ensuring that your items are shipped safely to you is not, and you have our word that we are on top of this. We are grateful for your ongoing trust and continued support in these challenging times; it certainly means a lot to us and we want to do our best to support you every step of the way.

In addition to keeping you posted on the developments of the situation, you may also use your online tracker to monitor progress and we recommend that you check it regularly for updates. For any further enquiries, you can contact us here.
