Golden Week is a Chinese national holiday in October which impacts the speed and costs of end-to-end logistics for your business.
We explain you how Twill keeps your logistics running when you need it the most as well as when you should book your shipment to get it delivered on time.
Every year at the beginning of October, there is a flag raising ceremony on the Tian’anmen Square in Peking. With this the Golden Week in China starts and lasts for a week. During this time the Chinese population enjoys a week full of events, light shows and celebrations. However, also means that a lot of offices, companies and factories are closed. As a result, companies around the world working with China have to adjust their logistics around this week.
The impact on logistics
China is one of the world’s biggest and most important markets. That’s why there is a big pressure on maintaining productivity and efficient supply chains all year around. But during Golden Week the world’s largest exporter enjoys time off. Golden Week also means that there is a reduced minimum of employees working at ports and terminals. With shorter capacities this means that shipping into and out of China is almost impossible and if possible, extremely costly.
For many companies around the world, this means they must prepare their supply chain logistics in advance to assure shipments are being delivered on time and without those high peak season fees.
But there is no reason to be scared – Twill has you covered. Twill provides you with the necessary help you need to ship your freight in and out of China and assures your supply chain keeps stable in this special period of the year. Of course you have to assure to book your shipment on time and preferable two weeks in advance to your estimated time of departure. Additionally, for your benefit, Twill also takes care of your end-to-end logistics by providing other services such as Inland, Customs House Brokerage and Value Protect, meeting all your requirements through one point of contact.
