China Northern Province Factory & Business Shutdowns August and September 2016

by on Jul.09, 2016, under China Manufacturing Blog

Hundreds of factories and other businesses will need to shutdown in and around Shanghai for several weeks leading up to and during the G20 summit.

It will affect businesses in Shanghai, Hangzhou, Zhejiang and Jiangsu from Wednesday August 24th thru Tuesday September 6th

If you are ordering anything from any part of China, and it is time sensitive and production or shipping may be overlapping Early August – Mid September we strongly suggest you work closely with QPI Ltd or your other people on the ground in China to ensure you will not be affected.

These shutdowns are (almost) common, and are typically aimed at reducing pollution around major events and forums such as this G20, World Fair, or most famously the Olympics.

Note, while your supplier may not be in that region, it is possible that they buy raw materials from, or subcontract services to someone in the region.

Even if the supplier is not affected, there may be transport delays, backlogs and other knock on effects.

Again, if your shipment is time sensitive now is the best time to start working with your local Chinese partner/s to make a close assessment of how it may be affected.
