UPDATE COVID 19

Our thoughts and prays are going to the people affected by the COVID19

and all the people who dedicate their lives to caring for others.

Last update 27 March

DP Lenticular is working normally but from home… we have suspended international travel in the coming weeks. 

Pacur is working, a new container full of lenticular sheets is arriving just before Easter. 

Warehouses:

Actually our partners in Ireland, Barcelona and Belgium are operational.

This means that we continue to keep the same stock level so we continue to deliver.

As you imagine transport is (more than ever) an important issue. As we remind regularly, please note that we cannot be responsible for any damage or unforeseen delays that may occur.

A concern for the coming weeks can be a shortage of Polish drivers due to the fact they cannot swap in Poland because that will lead to a 2 week quarantaine period of that driver.

When we are sending transport instructions, we need to provide the confirmation that the unloading location is still open.

We were just informed that the transport companies are adding a « COVID Sucharge« . We hope it will be for a short period of time…

For all EU destinations, please keep in mind that there are no guarantees on leadtimes.  Our road transport partners are informing us about the following :

Ex YU countries are taking measures to contain the outbreak and this is causing delays. We will continue to send goods as planned but because of the limitations, there will be delays with the delivery/collection of goods. Shipments with fix delivery dates will not be delivered on time.

Transit through countries are sometimes organized in convoys and drivers can be put in self-isolation.
Consequently, we are facing with lack of capacity, transit times and schedules are unpredictable.
