Hong Kong and China National Holidays
As a friendly reminder, China’s National Holidays and Mid-Autumn Festivals are just around the corner. Most of the factories in Hong Kong and China will be closed in observation of the holidays September 13-15 and from October 1, 2019 to October 7, 2019.
An overall increase of export bookings in Asia is anticipated considering the September 1 tariff increases, as well as in preparation for the 2019 holiday shopping season. South East World Wide, Ltd., as always, will do its best to maintain capacity, but we encourage you to book shipments as early as possible to avoid shipping delays. Please remain in close contact with your local SEWW representatives to keep them informed of any urgent shipments.
Also note: Chinese New Year ‘YEAR OF THE RAT’ begins January 25, 2020 and will last for 15 days.
If you have not done so already, please plan and prepare for space/shutdown related issues. Customers should advise their Production Schedule and pre-book their freight to ensure space is secured.
South East World Wide is committed to keeping our customers informed and updated with any breaking news relevant to logistics. We will continue to keep you posted on any future updates as it relates to international logistics.
If you have any questions concerning how the upcoming holidays may impact you and/or your business please give your local South East World Wide, Ltd. Sales Representative a call.
