Four ways to avoid business closures during Chinese New Year

Chinese New Year
  1. Place your bookings at least ten days prior to vessel departure time.
  2. Make early arrangements on original bills of lading (telex release or courier of originals) to avoid potential storage issues at destination.
  3. Where feasible, arrange express B/Ls or telex release to prevent any stress of late deliveries and storage fees.
  4. Take into account that business closures vary by location:
    • China:               February 15, 2018 – February 21, 2018
    • Hong Kong:      February 16, 2018 – February 19, 2018
    • Taiwan:            February 15, 2018 – February 20, 2018

If you have any questions concerning shipments booked with Universal Logistics and how they may be impacted by the Chinese New Year, please contact Debbie McGuire, Manager – Freight Solutions at (905) 882-4880, ext. 308 or by email.
