Empty Container Shortage Jeopardizes China’s Import Market

Empty Container Shortage Jeopardizes China’s Import Market

The gleam of hop this week in the (PMA) Pacific Maritime Association and (ILWU) International Longshore and Warehouse Union negotiations regarding the struggling West Coast import trade community is facing another disaster!  The shortage of empty containers in China to carry the unpredicted high volume of USA imports.

While the high demand is the arising problem, the growing empty container crisis is a result in the elements listed below:

  • Port congestion slowing container turn-around times
  • Adequate U.S. export levels
  • Vessel unavailability to port affects scheduling
  • Leisurely return of the empties at destination
  • Inept chassis usages in USA
  • Overall shortfall of the worldwide container pool

Also airlines are expecting an extreme escalation in air cargo and pricing out of China in the next few weeks.

China’s Holidays 2015

China Holidays 2015

Remember the vast holiday celebrations when you are Printing books in China!

China is known for taking many days off during the year. What may look like a lot of holidays for being a US citizen, but over in China it is the norm. Below you will find the 2015 China book printing holidays. These holidays are important to making sure your project is delivered on your expecting date. For the larger holidays, please keep in mind workers tend to extend their holiday due to the traveling conditions. Even after the holiday there is a lot of catch up work needed, so be sure to add into your production time, if producing during these major holidays (Note the National Holidays and Common Local Holidays). If you have any question on when you should have a project in or on holidays printing in China please contact PRC Book Printing at info@prcbookprinting.com
