INDUSTRY WIDE FIREWORKS SHORTAGE

We are committed to providing our customers with high quality fireworks at the lowest prices and we will continue to do so. However 2021 is a challenging year with a massive product shortage in the fireworks industry. We are encouraging our customers not to wait until the last minute, if you do there is a possibility there will be nothing left to buy, not even from our competitors. We will be closing off wholesale in the end of May so if you are a wholesale buyer please email info@brooklynfireworks.com to place an order while we are still accepting them. There has been freight surcharges of $5800, $3600, $1800 and the latest of $3400 and the ports in China just keep on adding additional charges. These fees increased our shipping costs by over 100% Many distributors tried to wait until the freight prices were low again creating a massive fireworks shortage that our industry has never seen before. Over 60% of the fireworks that were ordered by our country in 2021 will not arrive this year caused by numerous factors such as; the Maersk ship losing 750 containers, the “Ever Given” ship that got stuck in the Suez Canal disrupting the supply chain and delaying imports to the United States; port closures in Canada forced Canadian companies to redirect their imports to the east coast creating a bottle neck at the ports leading to months of delays to get containers out.
