COVID-19 Update: Clients and Supply Partners

To our valued clients and supply partners:

As the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to evolve and impact communities around the world, the health and safety of our client’s and our employees will always be a priority.

We have been closely monitoring the situation with information supplied by the CDC, WHO, and the public health officials within our own communities. We will follow the recommendations provided by those organizations concerning public health and safety.

RAI offices are fully operational with our team members working remotely to reduce the risk of spreading the virus and to accommodate school closings and other issues. Throughout this process we are in constant communication with our team to evaluate any situation. We are committed to servicing our clients during these uncertain times and will continue operations without disruption.

Thank you,

Update: French Port Strike

The ongoing nationwide strikes in France are affecting all ports across the country impacting the shipping companies’ services.  Several containers are currently blocked at the ports, while many shipping companies have cancelled or postponed the berthing of their vessels.

Significant delays and additional charges are therefore to be expected for all shipments to or from French ports.  These events may result in additional costs such as port charges, demurrage, etc.

Unfortunately this situation is expected to continue for several more days and delays will be felt in the weeks to come.
