Chinese New Year 2017

December, 14 2016

Plan your cargo well in advance of the Chinese New Year

The traditional celebration of the Chinese New Year is approaching It is also celebrated outside China in countries with large Chinese communities, including Hong Kong, Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, and Taiwan with the following public holidays*:

  • China 27 January - 2 February (including Spring Festival Golden Week)
  • Hong Kong 28-31 January
  • Indonesia 28 January
  • Malaysia 28-29 January
  • Singapore 28-30 January
  • Taiwan 27 January – 1 February
  • Vietnam 26 January – 1 February (including Tet holiday)

We kindly ask you to bear in mind the impact this might have on the local customs and port facilities. Offices and factories will be closed, selected freight services will be cancelled.Prior to the holidays, we expect a pressure on the already thight capacity to and from the Far East. We recommend you to book containers and air freight shipments as early as possible, and even give us a prognosis of large volumes to come.

We are working to secure space aboard vessels and air planes for shipments already planned and booked, but at the moment (due to peak season) we experience a bottleneck situation where non-priority shipments are queing up. If you have any questions to our services and solutions, please connect to your local Geodis Wilson office or contact person.

Kind regards
GEODIS Denmark
