Frequently Asked Questions

No. It is impossible for any shipping company to guarantee arrival times. JPLS will do everything that they can to make sure that your cargo arrives according to our sailing schedule, as detailed on the website, but we cannot control factors that are beyond our control that may affect the arrival time. We advise our customers who need to ensure that their cargo arrives by a certain deadline, to ship their items earlier to minimise the risk of missing a deadline in case of delays. Delays are more likely to occur during the peak season, which is from the end of October until the middle of December, so we ask customers to bear this in mind when shipping any cargo that is time sensitive.
