Consequences of Covid-19

Container shortage and rising prices for shipping & raw materials

The global shortage of raw materials and shipping containers together with the incident in the Suez canal and other consequences caused by the Covid-19 pandemic has led to drastic inflation in shipping and container prices and increased delay times for us at Strömshaga. Due to this we have introduced new pricing on some of our products. About a third of our range has been price adjusted, for current prices log in as a retailer at For those who placed an order before 21 June 2021, the price stated for the placed order applies. We would also like to remind you of the importance of placing your order in time to be able to ensure delivery in the best possible way.

Here's a list of of things that led to the price adjustments:

- The cost of raw materials has risen sharply over the past year due to an imbalance between supply and demand.

- Global container shortage have been a fact since early 2020, strated with the lockdown in China, which have led to historically high shipping costs on imports to Europe.

- A sharp rise of the corona cirus in India have led to lockdowns in the country which still affects our production.

- The blockage in the Suez Canal in March 2021 has affected the entire world market. Deliveries from Asia to Europe, and the Strömshaga warehouse, may be up to 3 weeks delayed.
