EuroDual Update #2: Delivery Status

EuroDual Update #2: Delivery Status

Producing the much anticipated EuroDual locomotives in H0 scale during a global pandemic has created unforeseen challenges for our production team.
We hoped that the production would run without significant delays and other setbacks, but given the scale and scope of the EuroDual project, unfortunately that was not possible, and we are facing multiple issues along our first production batch, delaying our EuroDual release further in time. Global supply chain bottlenecks coupled with a shortage of raw materials and human resources are pushing up prices, facing all time highs for production costs and shipping freight rates without any signs of a drop in the near future. Sudexpress is trying to absorb as many costs as possible, but we are unfortunately forced to slightly increase our market retail prices for all our EuroDual versions to cope with this ever rising costs (Please consult our new price list). We normally ship our production by air, but with the prohibitive air freight rates we will also have to go with sea shipment. We are planning to receive and deliver just a small batch of one to two EuroDual versions in mid October via air, and the rest of the versions by sea in December 2021.

Your enthusiasm for the EuroDual models has been very inspiring. We truly believe in the models that we're making, and we thank you for your patience and understanding as we put all our effort and resources to deliver as quickly and with the highest quality standards as possible.

Best regards
Your Sudexpress team
