Plan early to ship goods before Chinese New Year

     Chinese New Year 2023

The weeks leading up to Chinese New Year (CNY) put incredible pressure on exporters in China and China’s transportation infrastructure.  CNY is generally a 7 day festival, however, most people in China celebrate for up to two weeks or more.  Factories shut down over the holiday and, after they reopen, it can take a few weeks to get back to full production capacity.  Proper planning and coordination are important if you want to ensure your supply chain remains fluid.

Chinese New Year 2023 falls on the following dates:

  • China:             January 21, 2023 – January 27, 2023   
  • Hong Kong:   January 22, 2023 – January 25, 2023
  • Taiwan:          January 20, 2023 – January 27, 2023

If you have shipments that need to depart prior to Chinese New Year, we recommend that you place bookings with our Freight Solutions Team in mid-December, ensuring enough lead time to find the best option for space and rates.

For more information, contact Debbie McGuire, Director – Freight Solutions.
