China National Holiday & Chain of Responsibility Changes

China National Holiday Notice

Please note there will be a National Holiday in China from Monday October 1st – Sunday October 7th. During this time, businesses will be closed. If you are expecting a shipment during this period, please ensure you have notified ICAL and we have received the commercial documents required for customs clearance, in order to avoid any delays next week.

Chain of Responsibility Changes

Beginning October 1st 2018, the Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL) will be amended to provide that every party in the heavy vehicle transport supply chain has a duty to ensure the safety of their transport activities. For those of you involved with any part of the supply chain, we would like to direct you to the below links for further information on the changes.

Heavy fines are possible for any companies in breach of their Chain of Responsibility obligations, so please take the time to read through this information to ensure you are aware of your role and responsibilities in the transport supply chain.
