Albert Heijn adjusts delivery conditions: delays due to epidemics and pandemics fined


Supermarket chain Albert Heijn has tightened the delivery conditions.

Suppliers will soon no longer be able to claim force majeure if their deliveries experience delays due to epidemics and pandemics,

Het Financieele Dagblad

writes 

.

The supermarket chain can impose a fine on suppliers that can be up to 80 percent of the order value.



A duped supplier tells the newspaper that there is a 'corona fine', a statement that Albert Heijn does not refute.

The stricter conditions are normal, says a spokesperson for the supermarket.

The fine should serve as compensation for the disappointment of the customers.

  • The

    RIVM

    report Monday 

    4217 new positive corona tests

    .

    That number is roughly equal to the average for the past seven days (4,124).

    The delays caused by the winter weather in the GGD test streets in recent weeks have now been made up.

  • Vaccine maker AstraZeneca will

     deliver fewer doses to the Netherlands and the rest of the European Union than agreed in the next two weeks, the RIVM reports Monday.

    For the Netherlands, this concerns more than 217,000 doses that come later.

  • The 

    curfew

     officially received a new legal basis on Monday, two days later than Justice Minister Ferd Grapperhaus announced in the Senate on Friday.

    The curfews that were handed out last weekend therefore still fall under the old legal basis.

  • Hair salons

     these days expect to receive massive calls from people who want to go to the hairdresser as soon as possible.

    That says hairdressing association ANKO in response to the news that hairdressing salons may open their doors again in early March.

    next press conference

    on the fight against the coronavirus, after this week's, will take place on March 9.
