We have received updated information to assist customers moving to China

Shenzhen Customs will be closed from the 12th to the 23rd of August 2011 as China hosts the 26th Summer Universiade international games in the city.

The annual games bring together university athletes from across the globe to compete in the multi-sport event.

Please note that shipments will not be cleared during this time, so we will ensure that they arrive before or after this period. Additional charges could also be incurred if this could not be avoided.

Many companies will be closed during the opening and closing ceremonies on the 11th and 12th of August, and from the 22nd to 24th of August.

For more information as seen in Wikipedia The Universiade is an International multi-sport event, organized for university athletes by the International University Sports Federation (FISU). The name is a combination of the words “University” and “olympiad”. The Universiade is often referred to in English as the World University Games or World Student Games; however, this latter term can also refer to competitions for sub-University grades students, as well.
