CNY “Truck Jam”

by on Jan.12, 2017, under China Manufacturing Blog

It is hard to explain CNY to people unfamiliar with China, and I have done so in some blogs.

Below are a few links, and if you would like to read more you can search “CNY” in the search panel below.

Still 2 weeks out from the year of the Monkey rolling into the year of the Rooster, and well a picture says a thousand words….

CNY, QPI, QPILtd

Truck Jam at most China ports is very common in the lead up to CNY

 

Locals near most shipping ports will be cursing as anything more than a push bike or “bus 11” as the people in Hong Kong refer to walking, will be a nightmare.

The local police will make an effort to keep at least one traffic lane open in most directions, however as you can see it will be a challenge.

As for the truck drivers, it is not uncommon for them to (not park, but…) queue for more than 3 days.

 

Plan ahead for future CNY holidays to get your product shipped before the long queue, with a list of Chinese New Year Dates from QPILtd up until 2030.
