With Chinese New Year comes tight trucking capacity, limited airfreight/seafreight space and reduced sailing/flight frequency.
As a precaution, the Omnitrans China team has reserved truck fleets as well as air/sea space in preparation for the peak season. However, should you have any additional shipping requirements, please inform us in advance so that we may make the necessary arrangements.
In addition, as Chinese New Year is the most important holiday in China, a number of factories will likely close before the official holidays begin, and will resume regular business hours after the holidays officially end.
Should you require further information or to book a shipment, please contact your Omnitrans Client Service Representative or contact Omnitrans China directly at [email protected]
