Sera affected by Ever Given grounding

The Ever Given, now probably the world's most well-known container ship, may be ready to sail again but remains impounded in Egypt due to a stand-off between the ship's operators and the Egyptian authorities.

What does this have to do with the pet supplies sector? The containers on board the vessel, numbering over 18 000, also include the first shipment of Sera's new automatic feeders, meaning the delivery date has had to be postponed. "Pre-sales of the X-Feeder have been excellent. During the coronavirus in particular, hardly anything seems likely to spring a surprise, but we had naturally not reckoned with an event such as this," said Cora Laudien, press spokesperson for Sera. "We cannot give any reliable delivery forecast, unfortunately. The second batch was commissioned immediately, but will probably not reach us before the first delivery."

The automatic feeder is one of Sera's new products for Interzoo. It will retain its slot at the digital fair in spite of the supply issues and should hopefully be available in pet stores soon, according to the aquatics company.
