The Chinese New Year is the most important holiday in Chinese culture

Starting on the first day of the lunar calendar in 2015, the Chinese New Year falls on Febuary 19th this year. With many factories across China closing over this period we recommend you book your shipments with Unsworth early, as sea and air freight will be in high demand.
