Welcome to the April 2021 newsletter...we hope this email finds you doing well!
Important Update on inbound shipments: No April Fools'...we finally received some product this month! What normally requires a 5-week transit continues to be 13+ weeks. But we received two long overdue shipments, with the most recent arriving today.
But the logistics frustrations continue as congestion in the Ports of LA, NY and Prince Rupert are projected to get even worse, before it gets better. To add insult to injury, inbound shipping costs have more than doubled. Seems this is the new world we live in and we understand we are not alone. Our forwarding agents continue to provide updated delivery dates, but with no detail or false hope. But the good news...we are thankful that our goods do not pass through the Suez Canal!
Thank you for your patience as we all continue to wait extended periods for our newly released products.
This month we'll release the newest addition to the DC Fire & EMS line, the 2008 Seagrave Rescue 2. In addition, a limited number of Mack CF 4-Door Pumpers for FDNY will be announced on April 23rd.
Unfortunately due to the uncertainty surrounding global logistics, we are currently unable to forecast more than a month at a time. But like so many, we're looking forward to a bit of normalcy ahead.
Read on for updates on best sellers, low stocks, new and pending arrivals, new releases and more.
And as always, thank you for being part of the elite group of Fire Replicas collectors.
