Chinese New Year is the most important of the traditional Chinese holidays. The celebration is also known as the New Year of the Moon or the Spring Festival. Duration is 15 days, however, most Chinese are granted one week vacation. During the celebration of Chinese New Year production almost come to a stop. Consequently, shipping lines, airfreight operators and rail operators cancel many departures.
Officially offices and prodution plants in China are closed from 15th February to 21st February. In Hong Kong offices and production plants are closed for 3 days.
Our experience tells us space are scarce before and after Chinese New Year. Therefore we strongly recommend you book in space for your transports well in advance to avoid congestion and to ensure smooth operation of your supply chaning.
