This notice serves as a reminder of the yearly Golden Week holiday in China.
October 1-7, 2021 is the annual Golden Week or Mid-Autumn Festival holiday in China, China's national holiday week, to celebrate the birth of the People's Republic of China. During this week parades, 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 suspend their activities or run-on skeleton crews during these days.
Given the current market situation (COVID-19, severe port congestion, equipment shortages, etc.), Golden Week 2021 will likely have a more significant impact on your supply chain than in years past. Backlog is expected to continue to accumulate while activities at ports and airport are halted or reduced. Therefore, it is important you are prepared and take this into account when planning your imports
If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to your JAS representative.
