Chinese New Year blank sailings

To cope with the pre-CNY volume surge, some carriers have announced rate increase and are applying peak season surcharge. Westbound blank sailings will be implemented by carriers starting from week 7 to 10 (depending on trade lanes) to adjust capacity for the reduced demand.
Transunion

Far East - Europe

The current situation is more stable compared to the same time last year. As factories will speed up productions one to two weeks before they close for the holidays, space will be tightened. Carriers will start the first Chinese New Year (CNY) blank sailing in week 7.

Europe - Far East

Space is available, rates are predicted to remain stable until the end of February.

Far East to Latin America

Space is getting tight as factories speed up production, so rates are rising and peak season surcharge applies. CNY blank sailings will start at week 7 to week 9, depending on trade lanes.

Please get in touch with your DACHSER representative if you have any questions or discuss how to better manage your shipment to prepare for the CNY.
