China Warehouse Delays - Chinese New Year Congestion!!

February 2, 2021

Urgent Notice to all Import Customers Shipping From China to Australia/New Zealand - MAJOR DELAYS in China Freight Warehouses!!





Every Year at this time leading up to Chinese New Year, there are substantial congestion issues for Truck Drivers delivering freight into Chinese Warehouses for LCL shipments to be packed into containers.

This year is no exception, with Chinese New Year starting progressively next week, we are seeing a vastly increased demand for truck deliveries into the major container warehouse in China causing large delays and queues at the warehouse. 

The problem seems to have worsened this year dramatically due to existing COVID related delays and Port Congestion Issues

The warehouse are operating 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to assist, however as of yesterday the average wait time at the major ports (Shenzhen/Shanghai/Ningbo) was in excess of 24 hours wait - and will worsen this week dramatically. 

Attached is a photo received this morning from Ningbo - the queue is currently over 3km long at this one warehouse. 

Please note, that if you have not already had your goods ordered and delivered into the warehouse in China, it may be almost impossible to arrange in the coming days.

If you have any questions or queries or having problems getting your goods delivered into our warehouses, please don't hesitate to contact.
