Dear customers,

we want to keep you informed about the current situation in the Red Sea region and its potential impact on our supply chain operations. At Haarla, we are closely monitoring the situation in collaboration with our partners and suppliers. As of now, here is an overview of the current status and potential implications:
Goods Already Shipped

For goods that have already shipped from Asia, we are assessing the situation on a case-by-case basis. The shipping lines are handling each shipment individually, taking into consideration the evolving circumstances in the Red Sea.

At present, our containers are still following their intended route successfully, and there have been no announcements of the need to circumnavigate Africa. However, in the event of any unforeseen changes, there may be potential delays of 1-2 weeks.


Goods Yet to Be Shipped


Acquiring shipping space for upcoming shipments has become more challenging, and we've observed a significant increase in freight rates (several hundreds of dollars per container). This may lead to manufacturers reconsidering contracts and adjusting prices due to the rise in freight costs.
If any products destined for you are affected, we assure you that we will promptly reach out to communicate the details. Please be aware that obtaining new offers is currently a complex process, as shipping lines are reluctant to provide price quotes.


Our primary focus is on ensuring timely deliveries of goods with minimal disruption to your supply chain. We are actively exploring alternative supply options to mitigate any potential challenges. Our dedicated sales representatives and operations team are ready to provide more detailed information and assistance as needed. We understand the importance of your business operations and are committed to navigating these challenges with transparency and efficiency.
We remain hopeful for a swift resolution of the situation in the Red Sea to minimize any significant impacts on the supply chain. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation during these uncertain times.

Thank you for your continued trust in Haarla.

Best regards,

Haarla Team
