Chinese New Year 2024
In Europe, the holidays are now over, but in the Far East, the holidays are just around the corner. What does this mean for you? Chinese New Year will be the year of the dragon. The official start will take place on Saturday 10 February and the festivities will conclude with the Lantern Festival on 24 February 2024.
Suppliers will close their factories during these celebrations and will most likely be unavailable. In case you are about to receive import shipments during or after Chinese New Year and have not yet received documents/Telex Releases, we advise you to take immediate action.
Without documents, shipments cannot be released and may incur additional storage charges. Please check the status of your shipments and contact your suppliers for any missing documents.
Should you need assistance, do not hesitate to contact our operations team.
