China’s golden week

Commencing on October 1st for a week, golden week, or National day, means that Chinese businesses close down and nothing moves in or out of the country.

It has been celebrated in Mainland China and Hong Kong since 2000. The holiday was implemented by the Government to encourage domestic tourism and allow families to make long distance trips.

Ports operate on skeleton crews and ships don’t sail as they aren’t at full capacity.

Please make sure that any urgent deliveries or collections using our International Express Service are organised this week if time critical. Golden week will only last until October 7th, but its effects are likely to be felt until at least the 10th. There will obviously be a back log to contend with after this date.
