Chinese New Year is the festival that celebrates the beginning of a new year on the traditional Chinese lunisolar calendar and is the most important festival in China.
In 2023, the first day of the Chinese New Year (the year of the Rabbit) will fall on Sunday, January 22nd.
Chinese New Year celebrations traditionally last 16 days, starting from Chinese New Year’s Eve through to the Lantern Festival. The first 7 days, from January 21st to January 27th are a public holiday, which can result in a disruption of supply chain flows between China and Europe.
However, with Ziegler Group’s own branches in China and Hong Kong, we are able to secure the supply chain for our customers even during this holiday period.
Ziegler’s offices in China and Hong Kong will be on-call to take over each other’s duties to keep the movement of goods flowing as smoothly as possible for our customers.
For more detailed information, please get in touch with your Ziegler representative.
