China leads in courier deliveries

CHINA continued to lead the world in courier delivery volume in 2016, a report showed yesterday.

China took up over 40 percent of global express delivery volume last year, contributing about 60 percent to the sector’s growth, said a report released by the State Post Bureau.

The total number of packages delivered surged 51.4 percent year on year in 2016 to more than 31 billion.

Last year, couriers delivered over 4 trillion yuan (US$582 billion) worth of retail products that had been bought online, taking up 12.5 percent of total retail sales, the report showed.

The delivery network grew from 4.8 depots per 100,000 people and 6.7 depots per 1,000 square kilometers in 2010 to 15 and 19.1 depots, respectively, in 2016, the report said.

Meanwhile, service quality also improved, with fewer complaints.
