Coronavirus: Supplier delivery information (last updated 10th Feb 2020)

February 03 2020


Many factories in China are returning to work today (Monday 10th February), and over the coming days. Over the past 5 days data from the World Health Organisation suggests that the number of new cases reported is on a downward trend, which is very encouraging.

The BBSA will continue to work to provide factual information to reassure retailers that our members are managing this situation professionally and there is no need for stores to worry.

BBSA members are aware that the spread of Coronavirus in China is causing concern to retailers, who are worried about delivery of brides’ orders during this busy season.

In order to avoid any disappointment many brands have revised their standard delivery times for future orders and/or temporarily suspended rush deliveries. Please see below for details, we will update this page as required by our members.

Freight companies working out of China have confirmed that airports and all sea ports are still exporting goods (river Port of Wuhan the only exception). Although service levels are not consistent throughout the country, there does not appear to be long delays to shipping out of China.
