Brexit Statement

Preparations for a "No Deal" Brexit Post
October 31 2019

As of now, it is uncertain if there will be a withdrawal agreement in place that both parties agree before the deadline of October 31 2019.  Therefore, with time running out, we are cognisant of the need to provide information to you on what the potential implications of a "No Deal" are for you as customers of Phoenix Contact in Ireland. 

We are in close communication with our colleagues from the world-wide logistics centre in Germany and will keep you up to date on developments should there be any change to the circumstances.

Delivery information

However as of now, we must advise you of the following effect should there be no change to the
existing logistics arrangements for delivery of products to Ireland from Blomberg, Germany:

  1. Standard Lead times - Deliveries by Road/Sea:
    • Currently 4-5 Days.
    • After October 31 please allow at least 8-10 days (working)
  2. Express Shipments - Deliveries By Air:
    • Currently 1 Day.
    • After October 31 please allow at least 1-2 days (working).

This information is based on the most up to date details that we have to hand and assumes using existing logistics routes.  As the situation develops there is every likelihood that these details may alter and once we have any update we will provide this to you.

For now, we ask that you build in this additional transit time of at least 5 days to your Materials Planning and suggest that when placing orders that you allow for the extra time it may take. We would also advise that if in a position to build up some inventory between now and the end of October that you should order early as we expect that there will be an increase in demand for products, especially from customers from the UK & Ireland between now and the end of the month.
