Preparing for China's Golden Week: Chinese Celebration Will Disrupt Supply Chains 2017-09-14

The Golden Week festival in China will be celebrated this year from October 1 to 8. Factories will close for the extended holiday week, with operations resuming on Monday, October 9.

As we approach October 1, importers are 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.

We'll also probably see blank sailings immediately after Golden Week; because factories will be closed during the holiday, carriers will implement these blank sailings to optimize vessel utilization.
