Marine overload 07/09/21
We have received a lot of questions regarding the “Marine Overload” and when it will be phased out.
We are and will always be keen to build and maintain a relationship of trust with our partners.
That is why we communicate with you in a transparent way and keep you informed of the developments.
We would like to point out that only a positive evolution of the worldwide transport situation could change our position concerning the “Marine Overload”.
It is clear that the situation is not improving.
If you look at the price for Shanghai-Rotterdam, you will understand the situation we are confronted with even better.
We obviously remain attentive to it, but as you can see from the links above, this situation affects absolutely everyone.
We are not the only one in the furniture industry to have made changes in their pricing policy.
Although our approach is somewhat different from an overall price increase.
The players in the sector who did not act accordingly for this will suffer in the next weeks / months to come.
It is difficult to know what the situation will be in next months.
- A negative development will force us to increase the overload.
- A positive development will allow us to consider its withdrawal.
The good news : nearly 400 new references are coming in our catalog and that we are currently in reception of stocks.
We thank you for your understanding and will keep you informed of further developments.
