If you plan to contact factories in China, why not check the China Timezone to avoid disappointment.  Working hours typically start early in China.


Since ODM have clients all around the world, we frequently take calls from clients either early in the morning or late at night.   The Time & Date database is a great tool for checking which times would be mutually best to minimise jet lag and pick the best time for a call.

Why not use this planner for selecting a good meeting time for all participants?
