China’s express delivery industry hit a new record in 2017, handling 100 million parcels each day, China National Radio reported on Jan. 7.

The industry has become a highlight of China’s economy. For instance, the number of logistics orders of the country surged to 812 million on December 11, 2017, China’s largest annual online shopping craze, from 152 million 4 years ago.

Fang Zhipeng, general manager of China Postal Express & Logistics, said that e-commerce is driving the rapid growth of the logistics industry. “The delivery volume generated from online shopping accounted for nearly 70% of the total amount,” he said, adding that the compound growth of the industry has hit 54% from 2010 to 2016.

In 2017, 15 million environmentally-friendly packages and tens of billions of electronic express sheets were used, reducing carbon dioxide emissions by 136,000 tons.
