Chinese Holidays in September and October Impacts Shipping

Mid-autumn festival in China. September 13, 2018

A CIFFA member has advised that government agencies and businesses in mainland China will be closed for the Mid-Autumn Festival from September 22 to 24, and for the National Golden Week Holiday from October 1 to 7.

As we approach October 1, importers will be rushing to make pre-Golden Week sailings, which will further constrain space already very tight during peak season. Carriers will likely be more overbooked than usual, which may result in cargo being rolled. Major ocean freight carriers are advising shippers to place their bookings at least 14 days in advance of vessel departure in the run-up to the holidays.
