Rebound is closely monitoring the evolving situation in Japan to ensure that we minimise the impact to our customers. Knowing what is happening and where is critical. We are monitoring reports from suppliers with facilities in Japan and the shipping and safety procedures put in place by our main courier UPS who handle our international shipments.
For the latest news from UPS: (refer to DOWNLOAD DOCUMENT ATTACHED PDF)
Our aim is to ensure that we keep our customers manufacturing lines up and running.
“It should be noted that since the event in Japan began, no person, baggage, cargo or aircraft entering the US has received a positive alert for radiation deemed by the CBP to be at harmful levels. In fact, radiation levels measured in the cargo shipments that have alarmed to date are lower than one would receive watching TV for several hours and represent only a fraction of the radiation levels that one would be exposed to when receiving a chest x-ray or other radiological medical treatment.”
Our thoughts and sympathies are with the people of Japan throughout this devastating time.
