Heads up: 8-day National Holiday in China from Oct 1-8… Expect delays

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!

I work with many Amazon sellers to help them source from China. I’ve managed multimillion dollar sourcing campaigns and have been sourcing from China since 2008. I also am an Amazon Private Label seller myself so I know what you’re going through. My goal is to teach you how to source from China quickly and easily so you can own a 7-figure online business.
