Upcoming China Holiday Schedule

Please be reminded that government and business establishments located in mainland China will be closed for this year’s Mid-Autumn Festival and National Holiday from October 1-8.

Major ocean freight carriers have advised that capacity on Transpacific Eastbound vessels has been extremely tight in recent weeks and that in the run up to the holidays, and traditional blank sailings during Golden Week, are advising shippers to place their bookings at least 14 days in advance of intended vessel departure.

Meanwhile overall demand continues to outpace vessel capacity, and carriers are reporting the following: container equipment shortages in Asia, vessels are sailing off schedule, terminal congestion and increased dwell time continues at both Canada East & West coast ports, and rail car shortages persist.

During these unprecedented times Delmar will continue to work closely with all stakeholders to ensure your shipments are handled as expeditiously as possible.

At this time, we wish to formally communicate to all Delmar clientele, their need 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.
