Wave 2 Shipping & Fulfilment – Update 5
10 months ago – Thu, Nov 15, 2018 at 12:25:01 AM

Apologies for the gap between this update and the last, we’ve been working away to resolve an issue with some of our shipments to EU backers… and we finally have some news for you!

Container Shipping  

As was covered in our previous update all the shipping containers arrived safely at their destinations and were collected by our shipping partners. Complete.

Fulfilment  

This section concerns the shipping of individual parcels to backers directly, once the shipping container has been unloaded and organised.

United Kingdom  

  • All packages to backers in the United Kingdom sent. Complete.
  • All packages to backers in the Rest of World sent. Complete.

United States  

  • All packages to backers in the United States sent. Complete.

Canada  

  • All packages to backers in Canada sent. Complete.  

Asia  

  • All packages to backers in Asia sent. Complete.

Australia  

  • All packages to backers in Australia sent. Complete.

European Union  

  • There was a delay caused by a scheduling complication with the EU hub. Orders containing three items or less were fulfilled by the UK hub, which is why there was no delay to them. To prevent any further delay to the rest of our EU backers these orders will be sent from the UK hub, and are due to complete November 23rd. In Progress.

If you are in a territory marked as complete and, if after 14 days, you are yet to receive your Wave 2 order please contact support@steamforged.com. We’ve increased the size of our support team to handle the current level of traffic to our support team and decrease response times. However, please bear with us while awaiting a response.

Wave 2 Shipping & Fulfilment - Update 3
about 1 year ago – Mon, Sep 17, 2018 at 10:43:40 PM

SFG Giblin here! Apologies for this update not coming out on Friday when the Project Manager sent it through to me. That's entirely on me, I'll be back in the comment section from tomorrow to answer any questions you may have, but you may also have seen SFG Dooley in there too in my absence

This update will focus on Wave 2 Shipping & Fulfilment! If you digest information easier in a table format then follow the link below:

Container Shipping

This section concerns the large shipping containers you see on the back of lorries and on ships. These make their way to warehouses and hubs where they are unloaded before product is sent to backers.

UK - The 2 remaining containers (remaining Black Dragon Kalameet, Gaping Dragon, Old Iron King, and Guardian Dragon) have been delivered and unloaded.

US - The 5th, 6th and 7th containers (remaining Black Dragon Kalameet, Gaping Dragon, Old Iron King, and Guardian Dragon) are behind schedule having only arrived at port yesterday (original ETA 10th September). It will take approximately 7 for these containers to clear customs and be delivered to the hub, giving an updated ETA at the hub of September 21st.  

EU - The container for the EU hub has confirmed to have sailed to the original schedule. ETA for delivery to the hub remains September 30th  

Canada - The container for the Canadian hub is in transit and is due at port next week. ETA for delivery to the hub remains September 27th.  

Australia - The container for the Australian has arrived at port. The original September 10th ETA has not been met as the container is still undergoing customs clearance. We expect this to have finished by Monday, giving a new ETA to the hub of September 21st.

Asia - The container for the Asian hub has been delivered.

Fulfilment

This section concerns the shipping of individual parcels to backers directly.

UK  

  • Orders containing a combination of the Darkroot Expansion, Extra Dice Pack, Asylum Demon, Black Dragon Kalameet and The Four Kings have been dispatched to backers (UK, RoW, and EU orders bring fulfilled from the UK hub*) 
  • Fulfilment of remaining Wave 2 orders for UK, RoW, and applicable EU orders* has started. This is expected to complete by September 28th. 

* Depending on the number of products ordered, several EU orders, and all orders to countries outside the fulfilment hub territories will be shipped from the UK hub. As a general guideline, EU orders containing 3 or less items will be shipped from the UK hub, but this may vary depending on the destination country and purchased items.

US

  • Orders containing a combination of the Darkroot Expansion, Extra Dice Pack and Asylum Demon have been dispatched to backers.
  • Fulfilment of orders containing a combination of Black Dragon Kalameet or The Four Kings (plus any expansions from previous containers) will begin dispatch from the US hub from September 17th.
  • Fulfilment of all remaining US Wave 2 orders will begin approximately 1 – 2 weeks after the final 2 containers have been delivered, meaning delivery will begin from the last week of September/early October. 

Asia 

  • Fulfilment of orders from the Asian hub is scheduled to start from September 24th. 

EU 

  • We estimate fulfilment to begin from the EU hub approximately 1 – 2 weeks after receipt of the container (early to mid October) 

Canada

  •  We estimate fulfilment to begin from the Canadian hub approximately 1 – 2 weeks after receipt of the container (early to mid October) 

Australia 

  • We estimate fulfilment to begin from the Australian hub approximately 1 – 2 weeks after receipt of the container (late September to mid October) 

Wave 2 Shipping & Fulfillment - Update 2
about 1 year ago – Thu, Aug 30, 2018 at 12:41:46 AM

Hi Unkindled!

SFG Giblin here! I've been in and out of the comments section of the Kickstarter the past few weeks, hopefully if you're a regular there you've seen me posting and hopefully I've been able to answer your questions! Whilst I've not been able to answer every individual question hopefully the knowledge is spreading and with Kickstarter's new 'reply' feature it's far easier to engage with you directly.

This update will focus on Wave 2 Shipping & Fulfilment! If you digest information easier in a table format then follow the link below:

Container Shipping

This section focuses on the containers being sent from the Factory in China to the Shipping Hubs around the globe.

United Kingdom (UK)

  • The 2 remaining containers (remaining Black Dragon Kalameet, Gaping Dragon, Old Iron King, and Guardian Dragon) are now in transit following the disruption caused by tropical storm Jongdari. They are on-track for delivery to the hub on September 10th.

United States (US)

  • The 4th US container (The Four Kings, Black Dragon Kalameet) has been received at the US hub.
  • The 5th, 6th and 7th containers (remaining Black Dragon Kalameet, Gaping Dragon, Old Iron King, and Guardian Dragon) are now in transit following the disruption caused by tropical storm Jongdari. They are on-track for delivery to the hub on September 10th.

European Union (EU)

  • The container for the EU hub has been collected from the factory. The vessel is due to sail later this week, with an ETA for delivery to the hub of September 30th – slightly later than originally estimated by our carrier.

Canada

  • The container for the Canadian hub is in transit. ETA for delivery to the hub is September 27th – slightly later than originally estimated by our carrier.

Australia

  • The container for the Australian hub is in transit. ETA for delivery to the hub is September 10th.

Asia

  • The container for the Asian hub has yet to be collected from the factory. As this container will be travelling by road, the transit time is days rather than weeks, giving an ETA at the hub of early September – slightly later than originally estimated.

Fulfilment

This section focuses on the Hubs sending product to Backers directly.

United Kingdom (UK)

  • Orders containing a combination of ONLY the Darkroot Expansion and Extra Dice Pack for EU and rest of world backers being fulfilled from the UK hub* have been dispatched.
  • All UK orders containing a combination of Asylum Demon, Black Dragon Kalameet and The Four Kings (plus the Darkroot Expansion or Extra Dice Pack from the previous containers) have been dispatched.
  • Orders containing a combination of Asylum Demon, Black Dragon Kalameet and The Four Kings (plus the Darkroot Expansion or Extra Dice Pack from the previous containers) for EU and rest of world backers being fulfilled from the UK hub* are in the process of being dispatched. Current estimates are that this will be finished early next week.
  • Once the remaining 2 containers have been delivered, any outstanding Wave 2 orders will begin shipping from the hub from September 17th. This will be largest batch of orders and is expected to take 2 – 3 weeks to complete.

United States (US)

  • Orders containing a combination of the ONLY Darkroot Expansion, Extra Dice Pack and Asylum Demon have been dispatched to backers.
  • Due to a larger than expected fulfilment queue at the US hub, the original fulfilment ETA for The Four Kings and Black Dragon Kalameet will not be met. The new ETA provided for these orders is September 10th. We understand this is disappointing and are working closely with the hub to reduce this where possible.
  • We will update on the fulfilment commencement date of all remaining orders in a later update. We first need to clarify if the above delay will impact the upcoming fulfilment of remaining orders.

European Union (EU)/Canada/Asia/Australia

  • No fulfilment currently taking place.
  • We are working with the hubs to book fulfilment windows. More information will be provided in a future update.

Still Unsure?

Several backers have been contacting the team for clarification on split shipping. As outlined in Update 171. A Wave 2 order will only be shipped once all items included in the order have been delivered to the hub. Here are a few example orders (names changed of course!) shipping from the US hub to help explain:

  • Alex ordered the Darkroot Expansion. His order will therefore have been dispatched (see above on US fulfilment). This should have been delivered or is currently on its way.
  • Abby ordered the Darkroot Expansion, and Black Dragon Kalameet. The most recently received container included Black Dragon Kalameet, meaning her order is now eligible to ship, and both items will be dispatched in the next 2 – 3 weeks (see above on US fulfilment).
  • Firoz ordered the Darkroot Expansion, Black Dragon Kalameet and Guardian Dragon. As the Guardian Dragon is on one of the containers currently in transit, his order will not ship until mid-September when this container arrives at the US hub.
  • Edward ordered the Darkroot Expansion, Black Dragon Kalameet, Guardian Dragon, Vordt of the Boreal Valley, and the Darkroot and Iron Keep Tile set. His order will be shipped at the same time as Firoz but will not include Vordt or the tile set - these items will be shipped with the Wave 3 Stretch Goals.

*Depending on the number of products ordered, several EU orders, and all orders to countries outside the fulfilment hub territories will be shipped from the UK hub. As a general guideline, EU orders containing 3 or less items will be shipped from the UK hub, but this may vary depending on the destination country and purchased items.

Hi Unkindled!

The huge operation of shipping Wave 2 Expansions to over 40,000 Backers (inc. Late Pledges) is underway! We’ve already seen some Backers receive their Darkroot Expansion via social media, and we can’t wait to get the Mega Boss Expansions out to you too!

Our Project Managers have been extremely busy liaising with the various companies involved in shipping so many packages. They’re now able to give a more detailed breakdown of how the shipping & fulfilment of Wave 2 is progressing, everyone involved in this momentous project is working incredibly hard to ensure you get your products.

Below you will find the status of the shipping containers, and fulfilment currently taking place.
