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….


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.
