Time shipments to avoid closures during Chinese New Year’s Holiday

2016 Happy New Year

Office and factory closures for the upcoming Chinese New Year can last from February 6 to February 14, depending on the country:

China:February 7 – 13
Hong Kong:February 8 – 10
Taiwan: February 6 – 14

The potential for delays extends to the weeks just prior to the holiday, when there is usually a surge of shipments by companies trying to avoid the holiday closures.  It is, therefore, recommended that booking arrangements for impending shipments be made as early as possible to avoid delays.
