Couriers in big demand

China’s express delivery sector processed 660 million parcels during the weeklong Spring Festival holiday starting on February 11, surging 260 percent over the same period last year, the State Post Bureau announced. More than 1 million couriers were on duty to ensure service efficiency.

The courier sector saw demand jump among people who stayed put during the holiday to reduce the risk of COVID-19 cross-infection.

E-commerce parcels significantly increased in popularity, and demand for express delivery services in major cities boomed as many chose to send gift parcels or make purchases online for their families and friends across China.
