How a pig could affect your shipping

It creeps up on us every year, just when we make it out of the western winter holidays and get back into the flow of work..Chinese New Year.

February 5 – February 19 2019, Year of the Pig

As 80 million people travel back to their hometowns (the largest human migration in the world!), there will be radio silence from China. Two weeks of near total shut down from our shipping agents and partners in the east means it is very important to plan your shipments accordingly. Carriers will have very limited sailing possibilities during this time!

We would like to make use of this occasion to wish all our Chinese agents, partners and clients a very happy Chinese New Year!

Please give us a call if you have questions about your planning around the Chinese New Year.
