Lunar New Year 2020

Lunar New Year is a traditional holiday period in the Far East meaning that factories and offices across China and other countries will be closed.

Traditionally there is a rush for bookings ahead of the start of the new Lunar Year as factories close for several weeks to ensure their workers are able to visit their families for the holiday period.

Saturday 25.01.2020 will mark the start of the Chinese Year of the Rat.

The holiday lasts seven days and will start on 24.01.2020 and last until 30.01.2020.

This is closer to the Christmas period than in previous years so could cause severe overbookings on vessels from the Far East.

Carriers also introduce blank sailings to ensure that all vessels are as full as possible when they depart.

Should you have any orders that are due to be ready ahead of 25.01.2020 and need to sail before this holiday, please notify us as soon as possible so space is secured.
