Our intention is to continue offering a service to the best of our capability and resources available to us during this time.

This might have an impact on published rate, transit times and expectations during the lockdown period. Quotes will be provided prior to shipping for approval. Above all the safety of our staff and our customers remains our main priority. To limit exposure, the majority of our staff will be operating remotely during the lockdown period. We will ensure that the staff who are operating onsite are protected by following strict hygiene protocols.
Please stay safe during this period. We pray that we will all survive this economic storm and our thoughts are with you during this period.
