This notice serves as a reminder of the yearly Golden Week holiday in China.

What is Golden Week?

October 1-7, 2022 is the annual Golden Week in China, China's National Day Holiday week, to celebrate the birth of the People's Republic of China. During this week ceremonies, and other events take place throughout China.

During this time, factories typically close, and production is halted or limited. In addition, airlines, shipping companies, railway, and commercial operators also typically limit their activities or run-on skeleton crews during these days.

How can I reduce the impact of Golden Week on my Supply Chain?

  • Maintain clear and open communication so that we can work with you to find the solution that best fits your needs
  • Book as early as possible. the earlier you book, the greater the chance that you can secure shipping space.
  • Note what shipments are most urgent so they can be given priority.

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to your JAS representative.
