Shipping Delays & Disruptions


This is an update regarding the shipping delays and disruptions that are happening at the moment and what Heskins are doing to reduce their impact.

The current state of logistics and stock shortages is an unprecedented challenge that has left its mark on businesses across the globe. With over 24 years of experience in the industry, Heskins® acknowledges that the current situation is unlike anything seen before. In this blog post, we shed light on how Heskins® is addressing these challenges to ensure that customers continue to receive the high-quality service they expect.

1. Internal Stock Levels: Heskins® has long been recognised for its commitment to maintaining substantial stock levels of raw materials, work-in-progress items, and finished products. This commitment has been further reinforced since early 2021. By significantly increasing our stock levels, we are well-equipped to meet your deadlines and ensure that you receive the products you need promptly. In a time when stock shortages are a common concern, we stand out as one of the few suppliers capable of meeting your requirements consistently.

2. Earlier Dispatches: Given the extended delivery schedules experienced due to delays with delivery partners, we recommend that customers consider choosing an earlier dispatch date when placing orders with Heskins®. This strategic approach allows us to proactively manage your order, ensuring that your stock arrives on time or possibly even ahead of schedule. By taking this step, we aim to minimise the impact of delivery delays and help you maintain operational efficiency.

3. Schedules: Heskins® prides itself on its investment in efficient production and dispatch systems. If your business operates on a regular requirement schedule, we are more than willing to incorporate that data into our systems. This integration ensures that your product requirements flow seamlessly through our processes, reducing lead times and streamlining the entire supply chain. By synchronising our operations with your needs, we aim to provide a level of service that you can rely on, even during these challenging times.

At Heskins®, we understand that businesses are facing numerous challenges in the current climate. Our commitment is to work closely with you to alleviate some of these challenges and ensure that you have one less problem to solve. We recognise that open communication and collaboration are essential during these times, and we are here to support you every step of the way.

If you wish to discuss your requirements further or have any questions, we encourage you to reach out to us. Whether through phone or live chat, our sales team is available to provide further assistance and guidance. Alternatively, you can complete the contact us form on our website, and we will reach out to your inquiry.

In conclusion, Heskins® is dedicated to maintaining its high standards of service and product availability in the face of unprecedented logistical and stock challenges. By bolstering our internal stock levels, offering earlier dispatch options, and aligning our operations with your schedules, we aim to provide a reliable and responsive service that helps you navigate these difficult times. Your success being our resellers is our priority, and we are committed to working closely with you to ensure that you receive the solutions you need when you need them.
