This is our first official update for the group of Batch 2! We're pleased to let you know that it is a good one too.
The factory completed production on time on 01 Sep and below is a short video of us inspecting the order. The next step will be to load it onto the ship and send it to Durban which typically takes 25 days, so we expect it at the end of September.
We're just concerned that Shenzhen had a lockdown over the weekend due to a COVID19 wave and it's not clear how ocean freight will be affected yet because they are only announcing easing of restrictions today. We're trying to rush our container out before a back log builds up like it did when China shut down Shanghai earlier this year.
We'll provide the next update on 16 Sep to let you know how it went and what date you can expect your iCompost.
All updates will be posted on our Forum so you can see them all in one place, and if you have any questions you can Whatsapp us.
Thanks again for helping to get this much needed innovation going in SA!
