Guangdong Looks to Boost E-Commerce Express Delivery Capacity

Guangdong has announced plans to expand its local express delivery capacity, with the aim of being able to handle up to 17 billion parcels per annum by 2020, with the sector then expected to generate revenue of some RMB200 billion on an annual basis. At the same time, it is looking to ensure that all e-commerce deliveries reach every city at the prefecture level or above in the province (as well as Hong Kong and Macau) within a 24-hour period.

Among the main points of the plan, as laid down by the General Office of the Guangdong Provincial People’s Government, are the following:

  • E-commerce and express delivery logistics facilities are to be established in every primary distribution location, as well as in close proximity to major traffic junctions, rail yards, ports and other transportation hubs
  • Cross-border customs clearance efficiency is to be enhanced by the wider adoption of the protocols currently utilised under the terms of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Cross-Boundary Expedited Customs Clearance Arrangement
  • The lessons learnt from the Cross-Border E-Commerce Comprehensive Pilot Zones in Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Zhuhai and Dongguan are to be actively promoted, while consideration will also be given to adopting high-tech solutions to any emerging smart logistics or cross-boundary e-commerce challenges. Among the technology solutions set for such wider adoption are cloud computing, the Internet-of-Things, Big Data and the more comprehensive utilisation of existing public logistics information platforms
