White Horse Laboratories National Day Schedule
The autumn season is rapidly approaching, which means the Mid Autumn Festival/National Day Holiday is nearly upon us. Our Hong Kong and Shenzhen facilities do have different schedules for the holiday so please plan and schedule accordingly to avoid any unplanned interruptions.
As always, White Horse will have a core team of Engineers on-duty to respond to technical inquires and I will be available to answer any requests for information during the holiday week.
Our China operations will be closed from September 30 until October 7, returning to full schedule on Monday, October 8. Our Shenzhen operations include sales, administration, and laboratory services.
There are two extended holiday periods each year in China, the Spring Festival (Chinese New Year) and the National Day holiday. During these periods, a very large percentage of the population is traveling from places of work back to home towns to visit family or from home towns to tourist destinations.
As you can imagine, with that many people, tickets can be hard to find. Many of these destinations are in remote locations and planes, trains, and automobiles take days and multiple changes to reach. Some people, and some companies, will be out longer than the prescribed period. Please schedule accordingly to avoid supply chain disruptions.
Hong Kong will be closed on the 1st and 2nd of October and again on the 23rd of October. Our Hong Kong facility completes logistics, packaging, and inspection services. Goods shipped from our Shenzhen operation on September 28th will be shipped from our Hong Kong hub on Saturday, September 29th.
Hong Kong shares the English holiday and the traditional Chinese holiday, without the extended periods seen in China.
Please do take the time to work with customer, suppliers, and business partners regarding these holiday schedules to make sure you have no unpleasant surprises when something is needed.
