Campaign Update #65 - Shipping Update Cont.
This is Allen Chang again for this week's update. You might be seeing more of me at least for the next several weeks while we're in the shipping phase of the project.
Today is the estimated departure date for the EU Shipment. We can all follow the ship's progress via My Ship Tracking. The vessel is due to arrive on 25 May.
US-bound & AU-bound Shipments
Our new freight forwarder for the US shipment has confirmed everything is good to go. I was expecting to have the booking details by Friday for this week's update but our forwarder did not respond in time. As far as I could tell, the booking has already been made and it's just a matter of them sending me the booking details. The US-bound shipment is a full container load so we shouldn't expect any delays (such as stock consolidation or further inspections).
The AU shipment for Smiths is "Less than container load" (LCL as opposed to FCL above). VR Distribution, our longtime partner has helped us organise the AU-Bound shipment and will also be fulfilling the games once it reaches their warehouse. Getting the shipment bookings has taken longer than I had anticipated. However, I'm hopeful that the AU shipment will actually be the most straightforward to process as both sea freight and inland fulfilment are handled by a single provider.
Thanks, everyone for your continued patience.
As always, thanks for backing.
