Happy Lunar New Year
Lunar New Year, also known as Chinese New Year or Spring Festival, is a major holiday in Asian countries such as China, Taiwan, South Korea, and Vietnam, but is celebrated around the world. It is a time for families to come together, exchange gifts, and celebrate the start of the new year according to the lunar calendar. Lunar New Year typically falls between January 21 and February 20, with the exact date varying from year to year. In 2023, Lunar New Year will be on January 22, 2023 kicking off the largest human migration of the year as families travel to spend the two-week period together.
During this time, factories in Asia may shut down for two weeks or more, leading to disruptions in the production and delivery of goods. Additionally, increased travel during this time can lead to bottlenecks at ports and airports, further disrupting the supply chain. As a logistics provider, BIG Logistics is well aware of the impact that Lunar New Year can have on your cargo.
