Space availability on sailings from China is tightening as importers rush to avoid the closure of factories during the Golden Week holiday (October 1-8). There is a high possibility that overbooked carriers may be forced to roll shipments (delay shipments to the next sailing date). Carriers may also implement “blank sailings” (cancelled sailings), after the holiday to optimize vessel utilization.
If you have any questions concerning shipments booked with Universal Logistics and how they may be impacted by the above, please call (905) 882-4880, ext. 308 – Debbie McGuire, Manager – Freight Solutions.
