Force Majeure - Covid-19

Surcharges for inconveniences in shipping procedures

COVID-19 – Force Majeure

Dear customers and colleagues,

in strenuous times like these it is generally intelligible that courier services need to increase their costs as it becomes more and more difficult to ship freight to countries all over the world.

We would like to inform you that our commonly used courier services like e.g. Marken, World Courier and Special Express have charged markups to be able to continue their services in a reliable manner. As we cannot foresee which hospital or trial site is currently in a hot spot of the Corona crisis and may be difficult for the courier service to approach -or which flight connection can be used - we cannot determine the exact costs that may occur for each shipment during this time.


Please understand that these Force Majeure surcharges will be included in our invoices in a one-to-one relation.

Thank you for your understanding!

In case of any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.


Best regards

Your LKF-Team
