Chinese New Year 2020: How Importers Can Prevent Disaster

The Chinese New Year (CNY) of 2020 starts on Saturday, January 25th, 2020, and officially lasts for 7 days. But all factory start to wind down operations one to two weeks in advance. Getting operations back to normal can take up to a month

Avoid placing last-minute orders in January: Remember what I mentioned about the risk of quality issues Post-CNY? The same applies to the January rush, leading up to the CNY. Never place orders at this time, as the goods will most likely not ship on time while the risk of quality issues increase.
 

How long is the CNY 2020 factory shutdown?
