Effects of the Corona pandemic
At present (mid April 2020) there are no noticeable disturbances for our customers at DRAK-Aquaristik when ordering and shipping.
Our warehouse is still well stocked, our parcel services GLS and DHL continue to collect reliably. GLS continues to deliver almost 80% of all shipments within one working day, while DHL is experiencing noticeable to unpleasant delays, at least in some cases. If it is possible for you, please choose GLS as your sender until the situation at DHL has eased somewhat due to the extremely high current parcel volume.
Sometimes there are delays in our own delivery. Due to the high demand for disinfectants, small bottles sometimes have delivery times in the range of months, protective masks and disposable gloves, which we also need in production for our own protection, but could still be procured in time in sufficient quantities at the usual prices. We order early and hope that the situation for these products will ease again in the foreseeable future.
Although many of these products are not even produced in the Far East, our European neighbours also had and still have massive restrictions in production and transport, which have a negative impact here.
