What is Lunar New Year?

Lunar New Year, which is also commonly called Chinese New Year or Spring Festival, celebrates the beginning of the New Year on the traditional Chinese calendar. It is celebrated in many countries in Asia.

When is Lunar New Year 2022?

Lunar New Year 2022 falls on Monday, February 1, 2022.

How long is the Lunar New Year holiday 2022?

The legal holiday in China is usually seven days long but can differ from country to country. Generally, it starts from the Lunar New Year's Eve, otherwise known as Spring Festival Eve, to the sixth day of the first lunar month.

What are the dates for the Lunar New Year holiday in 2022?

The official Chinese public holiday is likely to last from January 31st to February 6th. In some cases, the holiday period may allow for extended time off for workers. The Lunar New Year dates change every year because the festival is based on the Chinese lunar calendar. We advise getting your shipments prepared and ready because many factories will shut down in China and other countries celebrating the lunar calendar.

The Spring Festival starts on Chinese New Year (February 1st) and ends on the Lantern Festival (February 15th) in 2022

How will the lunar new year 2022 impact your supply chain?

Manufacturing facilities particularly in China usually close their doors to allow employees to enjoy the festive period with their families, planning ahead can help you achieve maximum benefit to your air freight, ocean freight, and logistics schedule and cost.

Due to the reduced amount of employees on-site during the festive period, production times may need to be extended. You will need to allow for not just longer production times but also an increased amount of time to receive your quotations.

Production slows down and a backlog of orders is often the case, factories, in general, will process orders from their regular clients and will assign priorities to their most valued clients. 

Planning ahead of the site closures is critical and Crane Worldwide Logistics has a number of logistics solutions available to you. If your products allow for a longer delivery lead time, we can always find the best price for you via our ocean freight services, or if you need a faster shipping model, our China - Europe Rail Freight would be a great option may be of benefit to you as you due to the flexibility of various booking times according to the railway schedule.

We have strong relationships with our air freight partners if this is your preferred option. In addition, Crane Worldwide can offer a road freight service from China to Europe, a reliable trucking service can provide multiple benefits to your supply chain requirements.
