CBMA Update, Current LCL Timelines, Low Volume Lanes: Spain to Oakland

Operations Update

CBMA Update
We are happy to let you know that we just received the Q1 CBMA rebate payment from the treasury department. It has come in one lump sum and will take us 1-2 weeks to split out and assign payment amounts. We will be sending out paper checks to the billing address we have on file. Please confirm your mailing address so we can issue payment and send it to the correct address. If you would like to know the breakdown of your payment due for Q1, please contact us at cbma@elentenyimports.com.

Current LCL Timelines
The supply chain continues to return to pre-pandemic timeframes.  Below, you will find the current available average timelines for our LCL shipping lanes. This information is compiled from shipments over the past 4 months, and is updated weekly.  We will add the West Coast data as soon as we have sufficient data from our recently restored LCL Shipments.  For planning purposes, you should allow ~30 additional days for Europe > West Coast shipments.

Low Volume Lanes: Spain to Oakland
For our Oakland based Spanish wine importers, we do have some room on our current consolidated container.  Right now this is projected to arrive at the Oakland deconsolidation warehouse  in mid August.  Please reach out to your sales specialist if you have any questions, or if you would like a quote.  Space will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
