The Chinese New Year is a major festival celebrated predominantly in China, but also widely across Asia. As this festivity is based on lunar cycles it does not occur on a fixed date. This year the festivities of the Chinese New Year commence on January 22nd 2023 with the traditional Spring Festival and end on February 5th with the Lantern Festival. The first days of Chinese New Year for the next three years are as follows,
2024: February 10th – Year of the Dragon
2025: January 29th – Year of the Snake
2026: February 17th – Year of the Horse
The lunar new year is a well known period in the freight industry where we tend to notice a slower impasse of trade, due to the two week closure of China and other Eastern nations celebrating this festivity. At Atlas Logistics UK LTD we aim to continue supplying our customers with excellent logistic solutions via sea, air, road and rail to/from China and East Asia.
As a company, we enjoy celebrating the lunar new year as we were formed during the year of the Ox, in 2009. In Chinese culture, the Ox is appreciated for its patience and honesty – qualities we are proud to be associated with. As we enter into 2023, we look forward to the year of the rabbit. The rabbit symbolises longevity, peace, and prosperity, therefore we predict this year to be one of hope and increased business as we hop onto the right foot.
