The retail sector is suffering from delivery bottlenecks.

Now it has also hit the discount giant Aldi Nord - it had to postpone sales dates for its promotional goods.

Food - Retail delivery bottlenecks are getting worse.

After customers of the furniture chain Ikea had already complained about empty shelves, Aldi fans could now be frustrated.

The announcement of the first Aldi Nord merchandise should have caused great joy among them.

But now they have to wait even longer for the coveted T-shirts, socks and slippers.

Aldi Nord suffers from delivery bottlenecks

“The Aldi Original Collection will soon start with brick-and-mortar sales.

You have to be patient a little longer, our supply capsule has unfortunately gone off course, ”wrote Aldi Nord on October 6th on his Instagram account.

The popular discounter describes that it is also suffering from the current international logistics problems.

An Aldi spokeswoman told the

Handelsblatt

that “short-term postponements or partial failures in the offer” cannot be ruled out.

The announced Aldi clothes are only sold in special pop-up tents in selected cities.

Due to the delivery problems, the sales dates in Essen and Hanover were finally postponed.

Goods from Ausien particularly affected by delivery delays

There are always delays, especially with goods from Asia.

The company spokeswoman said that there have been significantly fewer empty containers available for months.

This means that finished goods cannot be loaded and transported immediately.

“In addition, the shipping companies are canceling trips between Asia and Europe at irregular intervals, which leads to further postponements,” she explains.

A temporary partial stop of freight traffic between the North Sea ports and the European hinterland is now having an impact on logistics on land.

While the containers are piling up in the ports, truck forwarders and freight railways can no longer keep up.

This is also confirmed by a study by the supply chain software company Setlog.

Accordingly, goods from Asia are now on the road eight days longer on average than before the corona pandemic.

Sea container transport now takes an average of up to 42 days.
