With the current climate we are finding ourselves in unchartered waters. Here at 7mm we have relied greatly on air freight to ensure we can get the world class Bartlein barrels to you as quickly as possible. With the current international boarder closures this is making the task of efficiently and economically getting out shipments to our shores an ever increasing challenge.
With limited options on international freight we have seen a 120% increase in the cost of freight to get the barrels to our door. While we are doing everything in our power to keep costs down, unfortunately some of the costs we cannot continue to absorb.
We will continue to monitor freight prices, and as things return to normal, and cost return to previous levels, we will pass these savings onto you, our customers.
