China’s volume of express delivery reached 50 billion parcels on Dec. 28, topping the world’s market for five consecutive years, according to the State Post Bureau’s safety supervision information system in China, reported on Dec. 28.

Since the year 2014, China’s volume of express delivery business has remained steadily in the first place worldwide for five years consecutively, exceeding the total volumes of parcels handled in the world’s developed economies such as the United States and Japan, expressed Feng Lihu, spokesperson of the State Post Bureau.

It’s learned that China’s express delivery volume has been growing by 10 billion parcels on a yearly basis since the start of the country’s 13th Five-Year Plan, and that the country has built 232 large-scale automated sorting centers.

The integration of intelligent algorithms, automated operating lines, and sorting robots enables China to reduce 70 percent of the manpower in express delivery business, besides, the intelligentization in storage and sorting also help to improve efficiency significantly.

So far, 92.4 percent of China’s rural areas have been included in the express delivery network, which can basically meet the demands of the 600 million people residing in rural areas.

Moreover, based on its soaring development of express delivery business, China has launched 905 featured projects, 16 demonstration bases of delivery service for modern agriculture, and 20 “express delivery+” key projects to promote poverty elimination and rural revitalization.
