Balikbayan delivery is a ”Budget“ shipping method, where fast delivery times, express deliveries as well as on-time delivery cannot be granted. Customs inspections, "on Sail" transit delays, weather conditions and other factors beyond our control may lead to delays in delivery. Low shipping Rates as well as secure and reliable delivery within reasonable time are together with other features the most important criteria of this delivery method.

June 27, 2017: Cyberattack knocks out operation of the world's largest container shipping company for weeks. MAERSK reports worldwide IT failures, caused by the Ransomware PETYA, also in the Philippines. Unfortunately, we and so also our customers are indirectly victims of this malicious software. To our regret significant delays of our Balikbayan containers must be expected. In particular our shipment with loading date 21.06.2017 will arrive only on 27.08.2017 with considerable delay in the Harbor of Manila.

Meanwhile container shipping with MAERSK runs trouble-free. We are expecting failure-free operation of our Balikbayan shipments. We regret the inconvenience and ask for your understanding.
