Blank Sailing

From October 1st up to October 7th, 2019 the Chinese National Golden Week will be celebrated.

This means that in China, most factories, customs authorities and freight forwarders will be closed for this week. The reduced demand of imports and exports in this period will have an impact on the number of sailings.
In week 39, 40 and 41, several carriers are canceling one or more sailings from the Far East to Europe.
Subsequently, this will have a negative effect on the eastbound sailings in November, also known as Blank sailings.

Due to the limited capacity, we advise you to place your expected bookings with us in time, enabling us to ship your cargo against the best possible conditions.
