China-Hong Kong cross-border trucking reached a milestone

In March 2022, due to the spike of COVID-19 cases in the Greater Bay Area, various transport restrictions were implemented at the China–Hong Kong border to prevent the spread of virus. Customers with air export shipments out of Hong Kong encountered difficulties in order delivery from their production facilities in China to Hong Kong airport. DACHSER Greater China teams reacted quickly to the situation by arranging cross-border trucking solutions to offer customers a seamless and timely connection to Air & Sea Logistics.

National Day Golden Week Holiday in China

During October 1 to 7, most businesses and factories in China will be closed. The week-long holiday in one of the world’s most important economies poses an impact to the international supply chain. Start to prepare now to minimize the possible disruptions.

  • What is Golden Week?

Golden Week is a 7-day national holiday in China. Every year the Chinese celebrate the establishment of the People’s Republic of China on October 1. For this occasion, there is a week-long holiday extended from October 1 to October 7. Traditionally, Chinese people used to take the opportunity to travel for leisure and visit their families in other parts of China.

DACHSER in China, like many other businesses, will be closed during the Golden Week and resume normal operations on October 8.

  • What will happen during Golden Week?

Most businesses and factories will be closed during the week-long holiday, meaning that production will be at halt. Airports and seaports will keep operating but with reduced manpower due to low production volume from factories. Normally government institutions such as customs offices will be closed from October 1 – 3.

Since China, one of the world’s biggest economies and production countries, will come to a standstill for a whole week and factories may not run at full capacity as soon as the official holiday ends, the plunge of production volume would have an impact on the worldwide supply chain.

  • How to minimize the impact of Golden Week?

While we try our best to minimize any possible interruptions to your supply chain, you can also help us by considering the following:

  • Communicate with your suppliers and customers to make arrangements for sufficient stock and manage expectations
  • Discuss your planning with us and prepare an accurate shipment forecast for long-term planning, so we can offer you the most suitable solution that fits your budget and schedule
  • Place your booking earlier and pay attention to the cut-off dates
  • For sea freight, it is recommended to book 4-6 weeks before the start of holiday
  • For air freight, it is recommended to book 1-2 weeks before the start of holiday

If you have any questions, please get in touch with your usual local DACHSER contact who will be happy to assist and plan the next steps with you together.

Step by step toward the goal — Sea freight groupage containers facilitate the continuous flow of goods

In turbulent economic times, sea freight groupage containers are becoming increasingly popular. Production bottlenecks, fragile global supply chains, and a container shortage have further increased the demand for small and predictable shipment sizes in sea freight. Michael Kriegel, Department Head DACHSER Chem Logistics, explains the service that enables a reliable flow of goods in sea freight. He also talks about why a good network connection is crucial, especially for goods with high security requirements.

“The network makes us flexible”

Demand for air freight capacity remains high. In the first half of 2022, DACHSER operated 150 charter flights—that’s 50 more than in the same period in 2021. But challenges in air freight remain: lockdowns in China and staffing bottlenecks, exacerbated by strikes at major European and international airports, make supply chains susceptible to disruption. Timo Stroh, Head of Global Air Freight at DACHSER, talks about the current situation in air freight as well as potential prospects and solutions.

Sea Freight | United Kingdom – Strike at port Felixstowe

Announcement of a strike at Felixstowe, one of the largest ports in the UK.

After the union and the Felixstowe Dock and Railway Company were unable to reach an agreement regarding the union's tariff, more than 1,900 union members will strike from Sunday,  August 21 until Monday, August 29.

Felixstowe handles almost half of the UK's container traffic, and this action is expected to impact supply chains, logistics operations, haulage operations, and international maritime trade.

All other UK ports as well as Northern and Western European ports, will most likely experience congestion, resulting in bottlenecks in port operation and delays.

At this stage, the full impact of these actions cannot be predicted. However, it is recommended to place bookings as early as possible and to be flexible with haulage and routings.

If you have any questions, please contact your usual DACHSER representative for more information about your shipment.
