We have some frustrating news to share. Our shipment of Umbra Via has been stuck at the Los Angeles port for 3 weeks now, with no ETA on when it will be released. Our contact said it may even be stuck for up to 45 days. This means we have had to make the unfortunate decision of postponing the release of Umbra Via to April 14.
These delays are happening, in part, due to Covid. Last year there were many global delays in shipping, from countries closing borders or having reduced people on staff. When shipping re-opened and returned to a somewhat normal schedule, suddenly EVERYONE was shipping. Now, it's post-Chinese New Year and everyone is rushing to get their products on a boat.
US ports are still affected by crews needing to quarantine when coming into port, so ships are sitting in port for far longer. This means new ships that are arriving can't unload, which creates a domino effect. Covid's affect on global shipping has drastically changed shipping schedules for every industry in ways no one could predict. It will, unfortunately, continue to affect shipping as Covid continues to be a global issue.
Thank you all for your patience! We can't wait for you to play this great game!
