As promised we said we’d give an update as and when we had more information, so here goes……
As I’m sure your all aware by now its been a real struggle to get any trucks from the UK into Spain since 1st January.
The update is things are starting to improve slowly and trucks are starting to get through a little quicker.
Its not a lie when we say that we’ve had more than 30 trucks stuck at customs all over Spain for up to 6 weeks, we’ve tried everything possible to clear these trucks but the goal posts seemed to move on an almost daily basis with new additional paper work almost daily.
Average clearance time is 23 days a truck up till now!
Once one truck clears things become a lot clearer as we have a template for the paper work required for the products on the cleared truck.
We’ve also been sourcing products from Ireland and I’m sure many of our Irish customers will recognise the SuperValu range!
There is a massive amount of work going on from everyone in the Overseas team to ensure we get back to normal asap so we’d also like to take this opportunity to thank all our staff for their hard work and dedication over the last few months👍
We will continue to update our social media pages as and when we have more information, hopefully this will be more often going forward.
