Mastering Lunar New Year Logistics: The Dragon’s Influence with Everglory

8Feb, 2024

As the Lunar New Year heralds the arrival of the Year of the Dragon on February 10, its impact resonates far beyond cultural celebrations, significantly affecting the global logistics and shipping sectors. This two-week holiday lasts until February 24, marking a time for family reunions across Asia, but the slowdown in manufacturing and shipping poses challenges and opportunities for businesses. Everglory Logistics, with its profound expertise in international freight dynamics, is adeptly equipped to assist its customers through these seasonal logistics hurdles.


The Lunar New Year, or the Spring Festival, is an all-encompassing celebration in countries across Asia, including China, a central node for manufacturing and global trade. The holiday period sees factories close and workers traveling to their hometowns, leading to a pause in production and a deceleration in the shipping industry. This disruption in the supply chain can result in delays and elevated freight costs, and necessitates careful planning to ensure the timely delivery of goods before, during, and after the celebration.


For Everglory’s global shipping experts, maneuvering around the holiday’s influence on shipping is vital. To counteract the logistical complications, prepare by planning shipments and equipment early to circumvent the pre-holiday rush and subsequent operational bottlenecks. Everglory suggests assessing inventory needs, anticipating demand, and arranging shipments in advance to alleviate the holiday’s impact.


In the Year of the Dragon, a symbol of power, fortune, and insight, Everglory embodies these qualities in its logistics and customer support approach. The company offers guidance on best shipping practices throughout this season, ensuring clients’ supply chains remain resilient and flexible despite the disruptions.


Everglory leverages its extensive global network to provide alternative routing and solutions that keep cargo moving. Through proactive communication and dynamic planning capabilities, Everglory ensures that, despite the festive pause, the effect on businesses is managed effectively.
