Prepare your transport during Chinese New Year 2022

Although we are looking forward to our festive celebrations, perhaps you may also be thinking about your transport during Chinese New Year

Production and a great deal of transportation is generally suspended during the countrywide celebration. If you are transporting from China, then we hope that you booked well in advance as several shipping companies, air carriers and railway operators do reschedule many of their departures dates.

Chinese New Year is the most important of traditional Chinese holidays. The celebration of Chinese New Year, also known as the moon or spring festival, lasts for 15 days. However, the official holiday of the Chinese New Year is only a week, during this time the transportation of goods is highly unlikely.  

The Chinese New Year is celebrated throughout China, including in Hong Kong and Macau, as well as in countries where there is a significant Chinese population.

This year the holiday falls on  1 February 2022, and in connection with the celebration, a seven-day public holiday will be held between 31 January and 6 February. 

The official closure of offices and factories means that goods are not being shipped during this time.

You may also seek alternative arrangements such as rail freight so that your orders are not affected, and possible disruption is avoided.
