Following recent incidents with improvised explosive devices, the Secretary of State for Transport has issued a directive prohibiting the transportation by air of ink or toner cartridges, to any destination inside or outside the UK. This directive comes into effect immediately. To avoid any doubt, an ink or toner cartridge is defined as ‘a cartridge weighing more than 500g designed for use in printing equipment such as printers, photocopiers and fax machines’.
I guess this will affect some toner and cartridge suppliers not in mainland Britain.
I mentioned this the other day, because eBay have already introduced this in their terms and conditions.
We were wondering if this will effect the compatible suppliers who have moved their business to the Channel Isles, with local and more expensive retailers benefiting from this new transport directive?.
