China’s State Post Bureau says 17.32 billion parcels were delivered in the first half of 2017, and 70% stemmed from online transactions.
Chinese consumers and businesses are ordering more online and that’s driving parcel delivery volume higher each year.
That growth continued in the first half of 2017 when parcel deliveries in China totaled 17.32 billion units, a 30.7% increase from a year ago, according to China’s State Post Bureau, the agency that governs postal deliveries in the country.
While 98% of those deliveries originated in China, there were 360 million international parcels delivered in the first half, a 29.2% increase over the same period a year earlier. China’s growing middle class covets imported goods, and the country’s leading e-commerce operators have responded by creating special sections of their e-commerce sites where consumers can order goods from abroad that enter China under relaxed cross-border e-commerce rules. Those rules don’t require the certifications demanded when retailers bring goods into China in bulk.
