We’ll shortly be coming up to Chinese Golden Week which begins in the first week of October. It’s the equivalent of an old style UK bank holiday where things actually used to close down and factories and industries would close. It is observed across China and manufacturing and banking closes down for a minimum of one week, sometimes up to two weeks as celebrations take place.
We always recommend our clients check with their suppliers as to what the plans are and must factor this in when anticipating delivery times.
As a timely reminder to our customers and prospective customers the 1st week of October is Chinese Golden Week. This festival is in affect a public holiday when Chinese manufacturing closes down more or less completely for at least a week and often for two. During this time normal business with China stops and goes on hold and so if you are planning to buy from China whatever you are purchasing will need to be in the supply chain before Golden Week starts as often it takes factories some time to get back up to speed after the holiday period.
