No organisation could have predicted or planned for the pandemic we are facing, but the on-going disruption to global supply chains already is immense. Everyday we are receiving notifications of new challenges to importers/ exporters as we help you to move your goods.
Not surprisingly our global air freight teams are working 24/7 to support the movement of essential goods, including helping to move much needed medical supplies and PPE products where many countries are facing stock issues. Suppliers are ramping up production at origin and airlines are now looking at new ways to increase capacity through the use of passenger aircrafts.
Because speed is everything when it comes to health care, finding ways to prevent stalls in transporting medical supplies from outside the country is critical. Making sure goods and importers are FDA-registered and approved is key to keeping things moving. Keep in mind that when Customs rules aren’t followed, shipments can be significantly delayed. For instance, if a non-registered medical device enters the UK without FDA approval, UK Customs would detain the product and force destruction or re-exportation back to the country of origin.
