China’s annual Golden week will be celebrated from the 1st to the 7th of October.
This week full of celebrations kicks off with National day, and in the following days, most everything is closed down.
The vast majority of companies, factories, terminals, customs authorities and freight forwarders are either closed for the entire week, or operating on a skeleton crew, all of which may cause delays.
During this period, there will be blank sailings, meaning several sailings to Europe are cancelled. This will reduce Westbound capacity in early November and the knock-on effect is reduced capacity for Eastbound sailings.
As ever, we strongly recommend you book as far in advance as possible.
Please also take any required original documentation in to consideration.
