Katherine Salt is the co-owner of Plums Lingerie
Currently we, and I expect many other companies, are experiencing some of the results from a last-minute Brexit deal to leave the EU.
There has been considerable confusion in what is required by customs for good coming in from the EU which has resulted in large shipments being returned back to our suppliers Prima Donna and Marie Jo. Being in Jersey has added another layer of complexity to the issue but thankfully we have managed to get a shipment cleared by UK customs.
Unfortunately, the courier company, UPS, have a huge backlog of over 200,000 parcels in East Midlands to process. Our shipment is somewhere in the middle of what I imagine to be a very large pile of boxes.
At this stage, I can not give any specific timings on when we can expect to ship out deliveries and I am sorry that we are meeting our usual despatch timelines.
We appreciate your patience and if you do have any questions please get in touch.
