Client Alert

Most businesses in mainland China and Hong Kong will be closed from January 22-28 in observance of the Chinese New Year.

In anticipation of the holiday, we urge all clients who ship freight to and from China to book upcoming shipments as soon as possible to avoid delays in the weeks surrounding the holiday.

Ocean carriers typically omit ports of call during the holiday in order to perform maintenance on their vessels. As a result, vessel space will be very tight in the weeks ahead.
