China Airfreight at high demand

At the moment, supply and demand are in balance, but DSV are seeing significant increases in demand for cargo from China to Europe. Demand and rates will continue to rise up to the start of Chinese New Year.

DSV expects some congestion issues especially from the South China regions such as Shenzhen and Guangzhou. A large majority of cargo is sent across the border from Southern China into Hong Kong with departure from Hong Kong’s International Airport (Chek Lap Kok).  We anticipate some likely delays due to waiting times at the cross border check points. In order to give shippers the best opportunity to connect with flights, please note the following cut off times for Air cargo bookings from Guangzhou and Shenzhen.
