Subject: Upcoming China Holiday Schedule
|As a reminder please note that government and business establishments located in mainland China will be closed for the Mid-Autumn Festival from September 15-17, and the National Holiday from October 1-7.
Major ocean freight carriers have advised that capacity on Transpacific Eastbound vessels has been very tight in recent weeks and that in the run up to the holidays, and subsequent blank sailings during Golden Week, are advising shippers to place their bookings at least 10 days in advance of vessel departure.
We wish to formally advise all Delmar clientele to notify their suppliers and associates that booking arrangements should be made as early as possible for impending shipments.
Additional information may be obtained by contacting your local Delmar representative.
