Purchase Orders For 2022 & Online Tracking Portal – 22.12.21

Purchase Orders for 2022 & Online Tracking Portal – 22.12.21

Wednesday 22nd of December 2021

Dear Valued Clients,

As we head into 2022; I think we can all agree that proactively engaging in the supply chain earlier for shipping has helped us best manage the risks of shipping in 2021.

Whilst it is not full proof and there are always challenges at origin, during transit, as well as here upon arrival – the results between those clients that do engage vs clients that provide orders reactively is dramatically different.

I strong advise we continue to be as proactive as well all can as we head into 2022 with the recent COVID outbreaks and Chinese New Year just around the corner.

So, what can you do to plan for 2022?

  • From the moment you Draft Purchase Order please CC us so our teams both locally and at origin be proactive
  • Feel free to also share if you have planned proactively your Q1 Forecasts
  • If you do not have access; please get set up with NEOLINK LogixBoard Online Portal via your NEOLINK representative (this now includes an Order Management component that covers the pre shipping process)
  • Continue to forecast your Landed Unit Costs for Q1 with current market rates – we do not see any sign of rates dropping and with Chinese New Year around the corner, NEOLINK forecast this could even increase

  • Any orders placed that we are not aware of, please send onto us ASAP.

Chinese New Year is also very much around the corner (1/2/22) – we anticipate that factory workers will start to go on leave from the week commencing the 24th of January and will return the 2nd to 3rd week of February. Needless to say with the current delays to ensure goods get away before CNY we want to have containers packed the first week of January, anything after that we highly recommend you consider airfreight to ensure urgent goods with tight RIS (Required In Store) dates are met.

If you have any questions regarding Planning for 2022 or the Online Portal Access, please don’t hesitate to reach out to any member of the team.

Best regards,

NEOLINK Marketing Team
