EMERGENCY SITUATION SURCHARGE (Standard Shipping & Handling via Aramex)
EMERGENCY SITUATION SURCHARGE
In order to ensure operational continuity and to keep connecting the world with a high-quality service, we will temporarily and until further notice levy an Emergency Situation Surcharge to all Standard Shipping & Handling shipments via Aramex courier ONLY.
Please be informed that this surcharge levied by Aramex courier and Vape Perth does not profit or have any control over this charges.
WHY THIS SURCHARGE?
Aramex transports your shipments around the world using its network of partners' cargo aircraft, supported by significant amounts of commercial air cargo purchased on passenger flights. This unique model provides the coverage, capacity and service levels that you, have come to expect, connecting all 220+ countries and territories worldwide.
You will all have seen in the news or experienced firsthand the dramatic impact the current COVID-19 crisis is having on the global aviation industry, resulting in significant reductions or complete cancellation of passenger flights in most countries.
Aramex Global Network teams have been working around the clock to react and adjust its network, adapting it to reflect the changes in capacity and demand resulting from the global upheaval. The massive reduction in available commercial air cargo capacity and destinations has necessitated a switch to more indirect routings and the purchase of additional cargo aircraft lift, which is in high demand.
These factors, among others, increase courier costs during this period to unsustainable levels.
This Emergency Situation Surcharge will allow Aramex courier to cover part of the operating cost increases and the necessary air network adjustments during the time of this emergency situation and continue delivering shipments at your doorstep.
WHEN WILL THE SURCHARGE TAKE EFFECT?
The Emergency Situation Surcharge will be effective as of the 27th March 2020 until further notice.
IN WHAT INSTANCES WILL THE SURCHARGE APPLY?
The Emergency Situation Surcharge will be applicable to ONLY Standard Shipping & Delivery shipments via Aramex courier.
It is not applicable to TNT or FedEx (Economy / Express) shipments.
Please be advised that any orders made before this date will not incur any extra charges.
Thank you for your trust and cooperation. Stay safe and vape on!
