SageZander Update November 2021
After the UK and other parts of Europe entered a further lockdown earlier this month we continue to work as normal supporting all our manufacturing customers with our polyester, nylon and specialty filament yarns from our stocks. At this time all of our partners are working as usual despite local lockdowns in the different countries they are based so the various spun yarns we offer from Para-aramids through to regenerated cottons are available more or less as usual
For UK customers, with a few weeks to go to the end of the Brexit transition period we would suggest that customers consider if they should consider to bring in yarns this side of Christmas. There are various warnings about the ability of the infrastructure to cope with new rules from 1st January relating to Europe and reminding companies that they will need to have a clearing agent in place for deliveries imported from 1st January. Our own recent experiences with the ports for shipments outside of Europe have found them creaking a bit and we can sense some nervousness about the paperwork requirements going forward causing delays whilst everyone gets used to the new systems. For the filament yarns that we hold in our warehouse stock this shouldn’t be a problem to consider of course.
