Understanding the impact of End of Ramadan on logistics


With the end of Ramadan fast approaching, celebrated from April 8 to 12, 2024, in Muslim countries including Turkey, Tunisia, and Morocco, logistics challenges are expected due to the festive period.

Eid al-Fitr marks a joyous end to the fasting period, characterized by celebrations, new clothing, and gift exchanges. However, it also leads to closures and reduced operations in logistics and customs, directly impacting supply chains and delivery schedules.

Important dates to note during Eid holidays

United Arab Emirates: 8-12 April
Turkey: 9-12 April
Tunisia: 9-12 April
Morocco: 10-11 April

Why act now?

Office and Customs Closures

Public administrations, including customs, often operate on reduced schedules or close entirely during Eid holidays, which can lead to delays in processing shipments and customs formalities.

Reduced Capacity

Airlines may adjust their flight schedules during this period, potentially reducing available capacity for air freight and impacting the planning of urgent shipments.

Increased Demand

Just before the holidays start, there is often an increase in the demand for goods transport, as businesses strive to complete shipments before the closure period. This can lead to capacity saturation and price increases.
