Update: This year’s holiday is even longer as the National Day holiday is being combined with the Mid-Autumn Festival holiday. That means that factories, warehouses, and freight partners in China may be shut down up to eight (8) days from Oct 1-8.
Heads up – there is a weeklong holiday in China coming up from Oct 1st to 7th. The National Day or Golden Week holiday in China is the second longest holiday after Chinese New Year. How does this affect you?
- Factories may be closed a portion of or up to the entire week
- Logistics providers such as freight forwarders, trucking companies, and the Port may be affected as well
TAKEAWAY: Often times suppliers will “forget” to tell you about holidays in advance. So check with your suppliers and freight forwarders ahead of time to if production and shipments will get affected so you don’t miss the boat!
