Chinese New Year – 2017

by on 23 November 2016

We wish to advise our customers to be aware and plan for the up and coming Chinese New Year celebration.

The official celebration period is:

January 27 – February 02

Traditionally festivities start much earlier than Chinese New Year’s Eve.  Some people start to celebrate up to three weeks before so we are expecting disruptions from client’s suppliers starting 18th January and running through until February 6th.

We suggest liaising with your suppliers for their specific close down dates and how this will affect them.

To avoid disappointment we would encourage consignees in New Zealand to book shipping space as early as possible.  Depending on the service selected we anticipate additional demand for sailings departing from China from mid-December.
