Hardware costs increase as China-Europe shipping costs see dramatic increases

Shipping costs have increased by a factor of 5x in some cases.



Read more about Europe's rising shipping costs and their impact on PC hardware pricing.

Considering the UK is now out of Europe I imagine UK prices will go even higher than the incoming EU price rise.

I can confirm that this is almost bringing the company i work for to its knees. We bring in an average of 120 containers a week from the far east and those prices are what we are being quoted too. Along with demand being overly high due to covid, the containers are all stuck in useless places (Felixstowe for example has 50% of its container space dedicated to holding empties) and Chinese new year coming up prices wont start going down now till mid march, so May/June time before stock starts landing in the UK at reasonable prices
