We know that you might have some concerns with the current world situation, so we are here to keep you up-to-date with information on the current status for new and existing furniture orders.

 FREIGHT

Transport times by sea, have increased slightly as there is congestion in trans-shipments in Singapore with boats coming from Europe. The ports in all countries are open, however we can’t get containers to the port and loaded in Italy and Spain. Some factories are closed, see below for the most recent updates. Freight times for Japan, the Philippines and the US remain largely unchanged.

 AIR FREIGHT

There is currently no air freight as there are very limited numbers of flights – and all cargo planes are being reserved for medical supplies. This largely impacts lighting and can impact the sending of fabric to the factory for COM’s.

UPS is still available however only for tiny items and not sure how long this will last. This impacts the sending of COM fabric to the factory.

AQIS: Australian quarantine are experiencing delays of a few days, and some additional fumigation services, which are extending lead times by a few days.

 EXISTING ORDERS

We want to reassure you of the following:
1. ON ORDER - If you have an order with product, you will get the product you ordered. However, now with some factories closed due to government orders, your lead times will be impacted, and this will vary depending on whether or not your product has left the factory.
2. DELIVERY TIMES – If there are any delays you will be advised as soon as we have the information to hand and before the due delivery date.
3. FINANCIAL SECURITY – KE-ZU has been operating for 26 years with a perfect credit record as have our suppliers, your exposure to having paid a deposit is secure.
4. WAREHOUSE - This is fully operational, and we are able to deliver your product.
