BEIJING, April 26 (Xinhua) -- China's express delivery sector has basically resumed its normal delivery capacity, with daily processing capacity exceeding 200 million pieces, an official with the State Post Bureau (SPB) said on Saturday.
Bian Zuodong, deputy director-general of the bureau's market supervision department, said that 96.6 percent of the towns and villages nationwide have set up express delivery service outlets.
Despite the impact of the COVID-19, over 3 billion parcels have been handled in rural areas during the first quarter of this year, which has enabled more than 200 billion yuan worth of industrial products to go to the countryside and agricultural products to enter the city.
The State Post Bureau has recently launched the "Express Delivery into the Village" project, and strived to expand express delivery service to all the qualified villages within three years, said Bian.
China will continue to support express delivery companies to develop smart postal lockers and driverless vehicles to boost work efficiency, Bian added. (Edited by Zhang Yuan with Xinhua Silk Road, email@example.com)
