Limited capacity in advance of China Mid-Autumn Festival and Golden Week

Government agencies and businesses in mainland China will be closed for the Mid-Autumn Festival from September 22 to 24 and for the Golden Week Holiday from October 1 to 7.

Space availability on sailings from China is tightening as importers rush to avoid the closure of factories during these holidays. 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. Major ocean freight carriers are advising shippers to place their bookings at least 14 days in advance of vessel departure.

For more information, please call Debbie McGuire, Manager – Freight Solutions at (905) 882-4880, ext. 308.
