How Big China Events Affect Express Shipping

big Events in China can affect express shipping from China

July 1st of 2017 was the 20th anniversary of Britain handing Hong Kong to China. It was a big event which Chinese president xi Jinping made his first visit to Hong Kong.

As some would know, DHL Express shipments from mainland China needs to go through Hong Kong before shipping out. A DHL Express shipment of mine from Mainland China to overseas was delayed. At time of writing, there is still no DHL Express updates on the tracking page. This is a lesson to be learnt and if you’re shipping from China, be alert of big events/holidays that might cause delays to your DHL express shipments. Also, set expectation to your customer on this.
