Year of the Boar

On Tuesday February 5th 2019, it is Chinese New Year and the Year of the Boar begins.

However the celebration starts already as from February 4th up to February 10th, 2019 but most factories and companies will start the vacation period earlier.

Most likely the ocean freight rates will (temporarily) increase. Furthermore there will also be space issues for import and export shipments, so we advise you to book your shipments in a timely manner.
