Importer businesses run the risk of disrupted trade when their imports coincide with Chinese vacation periods. Preparing for imports, transactions, and complete business operations can be difficult because Chinese vacation periods are not fixed. The vacation periods can change dates each year, so it is fundamental to consider these periods in advance.
Chinese vacation periods impact your business in terms of production, delays in shipping, and potentially low-quality goods. Production can halt because the manufacturing factories close for the vacation period. Delays in shipping occur because many workers tend to leave the factory to begin their vacation. Lower-quality goods are produced due to the inconsistent timing of the workers’ return to the factory and pressure to fulfill higher quantities of orders, which leads to inconsistency in goods production and a lack of quality control.
