With the Mid-Autumn Festival and National Day fast approaching, it’s time to start thinking about how upcoming holidays in China will affect shipping, transportation and overall operations for your business.
The Chinese New Year, beginning Feb. 16, 2018, marks a period in which the country’s residents celebrate traditions and customs unique to their heritage and culture. As such, the entire mainland shuts down for weeks after the celebration, which will affect international shipments and impact the logistics involved with getting your packaging completed and delivered on time.
Although based in the U.S., we take a hybrid approach to manufacturing and supplying flexible retail packaging — it is our belief that successful supply chains balance cost efficiencies with quality, superior customer services, and the delivery of affordable packaging that performs exceptionally well. Manufacturing our innovative packaging within plants in China allows us to run a wide range of volumes and create customized, scientifically advanced stand up pouches that adhere to current quality standards and certifications. This ensures our clients are receiving the best packaging available globally. Though we hold all inventory in the United States, it’s imperative that customers place their orders well in advance so we can guarantee it arrives where they need it, when they need it.
We encourage our customers, or those considering switching to flexible retail packaging, to place ALL orders before Oct. 31 of this year. That way, you can guarantee your high-quality pouches and barrier bags will arrive within your required timeframe.
Our blend of overseas partners and domestic support staff ensures we are working with each customer 24 hours a day, seven days a week to produce high-quality, retail-ready packaging that best protects their product and is delivered when and where it needs to be. Now is the time to start planning ahead so we can best accommodate your business needs — whether you’re looking for custom printed pouches or other unique packaging styles, we’re here to guide you through each project and make ordering and shipping as efficient as possible.
