It not just passengers that are being impacted by the activities of the Icelandic Volcano, anyone waiting for the delivery of branded USB flash drives over the next few days could be let down as well.
The Air Traffic Control Body for the UK, Nats, has just announced an extension of the restrictions into and out of UK airspace until Saturday 0100BST at the earliest. With conditions deteriorating today its anyones guess when the restrictions will be lifted and “normal service” resumes.
Realistically even when the restrictions are lifted it will be days, if not weeks, before things return to normal.
The majority of branded flash drives are manufactured and printed in China and then air freighted into the UK with carriers like TNT, DHL and UPS. The operations of these carriers are all severely impacted by the suspension of flights in and out of the UK and as such there will be many customers anxiously waiting for news on their branded USB flash drive orders.
If you have got an event, show, activity which the USB flash drives were ordered for and it looks like they are not going to arrive in time you could consider getting some printed in the UK.
At USB2U we hold significant quantities of blank (un-printed) USB memory sticks that we can get printed up and delivered to you within 48hrs. Even if we don’t have exactly the same model or size of the ones you’ve ordered we will have something that will get you out of trouble.
We can’t suggest that we anticipated the eruption of the Volcano but we do always carry UK stock to allow us to provide a “Rush” service to our customers. Whether you been let down by a Volcano, another supplier or you just need branded flash drives in a hurry we can help so pick up the phone and give us a ring to talk through you requirements.
