More blank sailings are on their way as China and Hong Kong prepare to enter Golden Week.

This Friday, 1st October, is China National Day, which signifies the annual start of a 7-day national public holiday throughout the country.

Offices and factories will be closed and carriers have  confirmed a number of blanked sailings around this period, as they traditionally do.

However, blanked sailings can often impact other countries, as vessels that traverse many Asian ports, are effectively cut from their weekly schedules.

The above suggests that the start to the final quarter could see space and rates continue to be challenging, especially as we build up to the busy retail periods.
