"Blank sailings" period

Maersk: It is strongly recommended that customers book containers as soon as possible!

According to foreign media, ocean carriers are considering starting a new round of blank sailings from Asia around the China Golden Week holiday in the first week of October to support their surge in the past year.
Maersk said that usually 3-4 weeks before the Golden Week holiday is the peak period of shipments. Although most ports, terminals and customs will still operate normally during the "11th" period, the carrier is likely to suspend shipping during this period. Therefore, it is recommended that customers book containers as soon as possible and plan the delivery time in advance.
