The latest answers to your questions about ordering and delivery
The pandemic has been ongoing for many months but there are still delays when dispatching orders - why?
There has been severe disruption to international supply chains due to the coronavirus: while we previously had to wait a few months for a container of goods from Asia, that now takes over a year. As the available container capacity is currently insufficient to meet import demands, we placed orders for large quantities of goods in plenty of time to fill our warehouses for the indoor season.Our aim is to provide you with a great selection of exercise equipment throughout the whole home fitness season.
In light of the massive rise in the flow of imported goods, backlogs keep occurring at ports as containers are being removed and unloaded. As a result, our central warehouse is currently receiving a large number of merchandise deliveries at once. These containers must be unloaded on time, the goods must be inventoried and stored. Although we have greatly expanded our logistics, we and our logistics partners are operating at the limits of our capacity due to these processes and are unfortunately noticing a significant impact on the shipping process.
Solving this problem is of the utmost priority for us and we are convinced that we will be able to improve our delivery speed over the coming weeks and months, to allow us to continue to provide you with the level of service you are used to.
Please not that there may be some temporary delivery delays of up between 2-14 working days.
