Many express delivery companies are steadily increasing their national transport capacities.
The Paper was informed by insiders from several express delivery companies on December 19 that their transportation capacity is slowly recovering. Some express delivery companies also expect that the country's transportation capacity will almost return to normal by year's end.
The Paper was also informed by insiders from express delivery companies that the recovery of national transport capacity is linked to the judgement of the epidemic prevention unit on the peak infection at various locations.
Express delivery companies are actually more common than ever. The road is now smooth and the problem is not with 'people. The Paper reporter was told by an insider from an express delivery company that "in fact, the transportation capability of all places are facing challenges, due to the fact that the couriers came one after the other." It will become 'yang' when there is a shortage in front-line staff, but this will only be temporary. The recovery period will be short and couriers will be able resume normal business operations as usual.
The production capacity of Beijing express delivery companies has returned to its normal levels
The Beijing area, which has had a significant backlog in express delivery, has seen a return to normal.
According to Beijing's microblog, Jin Jinghua was the deputy director of Beijing Municipal Transportation Commission and secretary of the party group. He also introduced that Beijing's express delivery companies have a production capacity of nearly 90 percent. There is virtually no backlog in Beijing's distribution center for unprocessed goods.
Jin Jinghua stated that the current backlog in Beijing delivery is due to multiple factors. Jin Jinghua explained that some courier brothers are sick and cannot work. The front-line delivery staff of express delivery companies are also nervous.
It coincides with the second "Double Twelve", which means that express delivery volumes continue to rise compared to the beginning of December. Furthermore, delivery pressure continues its upward trend.
The third is an epidemic that has affected some of Beijing's bulk warehouses as well as outside Beijing's distribution centers. This has reduced production capacity and slowed down transit processing, sorting, express packaging, and sorting.
The Paper was informed by the relevant people in charge of express delivery companies that their transshipment centers and outlets have resumed normal operations in Beijing on December 19. Express delivery companies also took various steps to ensure smooth delivery channels during this time.
YTO is the most efficient in trunk line transport. It mainly uses its own capacity for transportation in Beijing and a little bit of unilateral transportation capacity from a third party. Beijing Zhongtong has increased and expanded the capacity of its more than 800 Tuxi Life + terminal shops in Beijing to improve the efficiency of delivery. It has the largest express delivery storage facility. This is achieved by cleaning up packaging waste and temporarily renting out stores. The Yunda Beijing Xingye Branch uses 32 unmanned vehicles to deliver parcels. There are also incentives like cross-regional support subsidies and attendance subsidies that support front-line operations.
Some companies claim they face the challenge of "lackof people at the front line" at year's end
The Paper was informed by an executive from a courier company that the current challenges facing the industry are unprecedented. Believe in the resilience and professionalism of the courier network, as well as the professionalism of front-line messengers.
Based on the circumstances in cities where there was an increase in infections, it appears that express delivery services are recovering quickly and will continue to play a vital role in fighting the epidemic and protecting people's livelihoods.
STO Express informed The Paper that STO's network operations in the country at present are relatively smooth.
Shentong has increased the network's resources through special support funds, personnel reserve channels strengthening, and transportation capacity deployment. This is in addition to the liberalization of the epidemic policy. The network is gradually returning to normal operation after some areas were cleared.
The network's recovery has been accelerated by Double 12 and the New Year's Day Shopping Festival. It has also brought in new business peaks.
STO Express stated that express delivery markets in cities like Zhejiang Jinhua and Guangdong Jieyang have also seen a surge in demand, with the daily processing volume increasing faster than the normal.
While the nation's transport capacity is being improved and restored one by one, express delivery companies also face a shortage in front-line staff at year's end.
Liu Yin (pseudonym), who is responsible for operations in Shanghai of a private express delivery firm, said that there has been an increase in positive infections in front-line employees in Shanghai. Some franchise outlets with "Quanyang", have also applied for outlet screening. Screening orders based on the coverage of outlets are single interception. Some franchise outlets with employees from "Yang", however, apply for screening interception based on the three-segment code of the employee. This means that screening orders are based upon the coverage of dispatchers.
"While delivery times in certain areas may be slower in the short-term, the business has very little impact." Reporters were told by Liu Yin that the boss of the franchise outlet would find someone to help clear the backlog after he has been screened. The blockage means that no new orders can printed. This means that customers in the area cannot order from express apps or e-commerce platforms.
Only a few will be available for pick up. Wait for the courier's recovery before you cancel the screening list.
A second insider from an express company told The Paper that, in addition to the higher "infection rate", front-line staff are more difficult to recruit for when there is more work.
The Paper was informed by a person who is in charge of a private franchise outlet in Shanghai that there are currently only a few positive front-line employees at his outlet.
"At the moment, we can only move one step at a while, and all the employees are preparing to return home for the New Years. It remains to be determined where to find people at the end. While it is important to raise money to retain employees, it might not be feasible to do so. It is the outlet that is responsible. People said.
"Our transshipment centre can basically leave 20 to 30 jobs per week, and the reason given for this is to go home in the New Year. It is difficult to find couriers near the end. Temporary workers are hired for sorting and they charge an additional 5 yuan an hour. It's difficult to recruit," Liu Yin stated, "It is the end of the calendar year, and there's still a strong desire to purchase." According to Shanghai-based outlets, many couriers will be returning to their homes this year. Most of them will do so before January 10, according to company sources. A few 'Yang' people have begun to plan to return home. However, they will still be facing the general lack of personnel at the front.
