Chinese New Year 2024

The Chinese New Year celebration is held from 10 February to 17 February 2024 marking the transition into the Year of the Dragon

Chinese New Year is celebrated for 16 days, but the official shutdown of manufacturers runs from 10 February to 17 February 2024, and this will further affect the transport options to and from China.

Traditionally, there has always been pressure on both sea and air transport around Chinese New Year, therefore we recommend our customers to plan and book well in advance to ensure space and equipment.

This year, there is extra pressure on capacity and containers due to the situation around the Red Sea and Suez, which results in longer transit times, affecting the number of ships that can make it back to Asia before the Chinese New Year.

In cooperation with our local offices and agents we do everything we can to continuously servicing and informing our customers.

If you have any questions, please reach out to your local Blue Water contact.
