The Chinese New Year 2019 (CNY) will be early of February 2019.
This year will be the year of the Pig. As you may know, during this period of time seller like us that work with China will issue a notice about delay in delivery.
Why the Chinese New Year has so long holidays ?
In China most of the dolls are made in the province of Guangdong (close to Hong Kong).
All the workers come from all over China to works in factories. The CNY in a period of time where all the families are together to celebrate this holiday like in US or Europe for Christmas.
Because ALL the population is moving at the same period of time, all the industry is closed (as well services – except emergencies) in the same time. It’a a few days in Hong Kong – Taiwan, but 2 weeks in China.
Chinese New Year 2019, impact on shipping companies
All the shipping companies will stop working so we usually haste to deliver the goods before the cut off (it will be something around the 28th January this year 2019).
As a doll takes usually 1 to 2 weeks to get ready, all dolls orders placed before the 20th of January have chances to be ship before the CNY. Orders will be resumed the 12th of February.
Factories now try to shorten more and more the delay to have 100% production capacity.
But for the second part of February you can except delays as also shipping companies will be overwhelmed by parcels !
If you plan to buy a doll in the early of 2019 we suggest you to place your order in January, or after the Chinese New Year 2019.
