Influence for Beijing

2. Delivery and pickup date and time will be limited and delayed

3. Handling and operation will be very slow for security checking etc.

4. Special holiday for government officer

5. Will be effective from 1st Nov. and back to normal on around 15th Nov.

6. Carrier plan to cancel freighter, space and rates will be very tight and high before/after 3 days of this period.

Solution/backup

1. Store cargo at temporary warehouse at Beijing border and arrange pickup/delivery during green time. This need to arranged 2 or 3 days in advance at least to fix truck.

2. Arrange shipment via other city like Shanghai/Tianjin/Zhengzhou etc.
