BREXIT & COVID-19 update

Dear Customer,

In relation to Brexit we have the following information:

The United Kingdom's exit from the European Union, is often referred to as Brexit.

We would like to assure you that MEMPHIS is able to implement this overnight. MEMPHIS is an Authorised Economic Operator and holds an AEO certificate (DE AEOC 113453).

The import and export of our products is part of our daily business. Delays due to the Brexit can therefore only occur elsewhere.

 

In regard to Covid-19 we would like to share a current update.

1) Global status of MEMPHIS Logistic Hubs

MEMPHIS Americas:

  • Ready for in- and outbound shipments
  • Special measures to keep functionality up in place

MEMPHIS EMEA:

  • Ready for in- and outbound shipments
  • Special measures to keep functionality up in place

MEMPHIS APAC:

  • Ready for in- and outbound shipments
  • Special measures to reduce staff impact in place

 

2) Logistic Partners

The dynamic of the current situation results in a complex matrix depending on shipment, customs and destination location. It ranges from simple delays to not be able to ship at all.

Examples:

  • Some specific areas are not served by freight forwarders. Further areas can be affected independent of their status the day the shipment left our warehouse.
  • The capacity of air freight is reduced due to the fact that passenger air planes use to carry freight, too.
  • Trucks get stucked in border controls and other difficulties

Please check the status, by selecting your country to get individual information:

UPS:           www.ups.com

FEDEX:       www.fedex.com

In general, the situation has clearly improved again.

 

3) Suppliers

With permanent communication with our suppliers and manufacturers we conclude that the production is stable. Very short term delays can occur in certain areas. Should this situation change, our sales team knows this best. Please contact us!

 

Should the situation in relation to Brexit or Covid-19 change, we will provide you again with current information at this point.
