Planning for a No-Deal (WTO) exit from the European Union
9 Sep 2019
STEMMER IMAGING are taking steps with our logistics partners to minimise this delay and with the company’s strong financial position we are able to hold increased stock. However, on analysis, with so many products, over 24,000 in fact, and many customers purchasing specialised variants of products it is impossible for us to guarantee availability of all products without our customers help.
Our offer is to import as many firm orders as possible into the UK before Brexit with scheduled deliveries in November free of charge.
To ensure this is possible, we need to receive orders as early as possible in September and October to ensure any non-stock items can be imported before the deadline on 31 October 2019.
Orders will then be shipped from the UK warehouse and invoiced just before the requested delivery date in November as normal.
Going forward, we will adjust our procurement process to accommodate any extended import lead times so this should be transparent to our customers. However, in December and January we recommend placing orders with increased lead-time, so we can accommodate the potential import delays. We will only ship and invoice so that goods arrive on your requested delivery date.
For critical deliveries in December and January where customers do not want to risk any import delays, STEMMER IMAGING can also import orders for December and January before the Brexit date of the 31 October 2019. If this is important for your business, please ask us to quote for this service before ordering.
