Re: Force Majeure and Supplier Lead Times
Dear Valued Safe Fleet Customer:
As has been reported throughout the trade press, business media, and other industry sources; global supply chains are currently experiencing severe disruptions and delays. The depth, breadth and magnitude of this prevailing worldwide supply shortage is now affecting Safe Fleet and, by extension, our customers.
This notice now is to advise you, our highly valued customer, that Safe Fleet has received multiple letters from suppliers declaring force majeure events and related lead-time changes affecting delivery of our finished products. Given this unusually challenging environment, the severity and duration of this impactful event is yet to be determined.
Please be assured that we are proactively and diligently working to determine the scope and extent of these adverse effects. We remain committed to supporting and servicing you during this global crisis by continuing to identify and secure available sources for materials, products, and manufacturing.
Thank you for your understanding and support as we continue to serve you through these challenges.
Please do not hesitate to contact us with any follow-up questions concerning the above.
Senior Vice President, Commercial Vehicle
