Sweeping days festival China: emergency freight contingency plan

From the 01st to the 04th of April, China and Hong Kong celebrate Tomb Sweeping days.

If you face an emergency logistics situation during Sweeping days, you will be pleased to know that Air time critical has planned some contingency plan for hand carry solutions and priority air freight.

However, possibilities are quite limited due to partial or total closure of custom offices in China and Hong Kong (see scheduled below) and you have to count with some delay compared to usual transit times from Asia to Europe.
