CARM: What all importers need to know about CARM

How to minimize forecasted delays during the 2019 Chinese New Year

Please note the following dates when the 2019 Chinese Lunar New Year will be celebrated in China and Hong Kong:

China: February 4 – 11
Hong Kong: February 5 – 7

It is recommended that your suppliers and associates make booking arrangements for impending shipments as early as possible to avoid delays. In addition, shippers should place their bookings at least 10 days prior to vessel departure time.

Other recommended steps include:

  • make early arrangements on original bills of lading to avoid any storage charges
  • where feasible, arrange express B/Ls or telex release to prevent any stress or late deliveries and storage fees
