    We're trying to organise a shipment to Saudi, but the lines aren't accepting any more bookings at the moment...

    Yep things like this and the pandemic make you realise how vulnerable we are to so many things

    Bit like when that volcano erupted a few years ago and the cloud of ash kept planes grounded for a while

    Some things you just can't plan for

    That is the kind of navigational error that got us in this fix in the first place, of course.
