Due to the rerouting of vessels from Asia caused by the current Red Sea/Suez Canal crisis it is taking up to 14 days additional transit time.  Also UK ports are in total chaos due to rescheduling, resulting in further delays at port.  The container which arrived today took eight weeks from China to Gateshead, normally it takes between four to five weeks. 

Sea freight charges have increased by over 152%.
