Upcoming Chinese New Year Shutdowns

Chinese New Year 2018: Three Weeks of Shutdowns Coming in February 2017-12-21

The Chinese New Year (CNY) officially starts on February 16 in 2018 and the celebration lasts until March 2. A slowdown in factories starts before the 16th, though, as many workers leave before that to travel long distances home. Expect the regular annual pre-New Year rush to be a challenge for importers of Chinese goods, starting soon!
Milgram reminds our clients of the importance of booking your CNY shipments early and monitoring the progress of your suppliers so that they are able to catch carrier cut-offs, beat customary shipping backlogs and thereby assure to have your goods moved on time. Pressure on the supply chain is expected to be very heavy for both air freight and sea freight.
