Impact on Logistics

Companies advance their shipping needs, leading to capacity constraints and increased demand for shipping, particularly for exports. This results in container unavailability, transport delays and increased shipping costs. Due to the peak season, congestion is expected at ports.

Road, rail and air transport networks suffer significant delays due to increased traffic and holiday-related labor shortages.

This affects the movement of goods to and from factories, distribution centers and ports. Preparation and planning are the key to managing your logistics and supply chain operations to minimize the effect of Chinese New Year on your business.

Personality Traits of Dragon Signs

Dragons present themselves as magnificent yet benevolent rulers who’re confident, generous, idealistic, and ambitious. In Chinese culture, these mythical creatures are in a class of their own, regarded as the givers of abundance and longevity.

Dragon’s confidence is neither false nor empty, as they hold lofty ideals they’re striving toward— usually for the benefit of their community instead of themselves. They are independent thinkers who’ll never yield their highest conviction.

Dragons are strong and independent figures, but they yearn for support and love.

Dragons are wise and adventurous and, at times, temperamental and impulsive. They’ll be loved and admired by many but find it difficult to return such affection. This will be one of Dragon’s most important lessons.

Even though they may not care to invest in relationships, Dragons cannot stay alone for too long without feeling desolate. Once they find that special someone, Dragons will guard that person as their treasure horde.
