To smooth the career development channels for express delivery men, Beijing has taken innovative measures to add a professional rank evaluation system, which includes five levels: technician, assistant engineer, engineer, senior engineer and senior chief engineer, Beijing Daily reported recently. It means that express delivery men will get more opportunities for promotion and equal social status. As soon as the news came out, it sparked heated debate online.

When it comes to the express delivery industry, the first impression for many people is that express delivery men are insanely busy. But in fact, today's express delivery industry is no longer a traditional labor-intensive industry. According to incomplete statistics, China's express delivery industry delivers an average of 140 million parcels every day, ranking first in the world in terms of business growth for five consecutive years.

Besides express delivery men who are active in the "last mile," more technical talents are in the cutting-edge positions of UAV design, artificial intelligence and machine learning. When smart logistics becomes the industry trend, the express delivery industry will add a profession ranking system, which not only provides more clear promotion channels for employees, but also helps the whole industry to realize more scientific and standardized operation and development.

From a broader perspective, the profession rank evaluation system of the express industry creates an incentive system for the emerging industry. For a long time, professional evaluation seemed to be the "patent" for accountants, doctors, teachers and journalists. But today, new forms of business and new professions are emerging. Statistics show that China's new social class now has a population of 72 million. While express delivery men run from street to street in the rain, there are painters, musicians and directors whose wisdom and creativity have enriched our lives. Should these emerging industries have their own "profession rank evaluation system"?

Today, the value created by new businesses is recognized by society. For example, "express delivery men" not only became the "people of concern" in President Xi's New Year's speech, but also joined the mass parade for National Day this year. However, for the majority of people, the sense of occupational acquisition is not only from the public's opinion, but also lies in the protection of rights and interests, decent salary, and broad space for development. A professional title is not a simple title of honor, but is the key to the corresponding solid career prospects and welfare protection. The policy framework of relevant departments is only a guide. In the future, the whole society needs to work together and come up with more detailed supporting plans.
