In a short span of time, express delivery in China has become a service industry boasting the highest growth speed and greatest development potential of all the emerging strategic industries.

The express delivery industry ranked third around the world in terms of market scale following the United States and Japan and attracted close attention from all circles of life both at home and abroad, according to Ma Junsheng, Director General of China State Post Bureau, who addressed the China Express Service Forum recently.

It is expected that the express service market share will at least double by 2015, with an annual turnover of 143 billion yuan and annual handling capacity of more than 6.1 billion.

At present, China has more than 6,800 enterprises that have legally obtained express delivery business licenses, and the express service network is rapidly expanding from eastern China to western China and from cities to suburbs. The number of business outlets totals 64,000, with more than 700,000 express service employees in China.
