Although the growth rate of global economy slows down in 2012, Chinese express delivery industry still maintains high-speed development. From January to October of 2012, the business revenue of express delivery companies above designated size accomplished RMB83.1 billion accumulatively, up 39% year-on-year (29.1% in the same period of last year), of which intra-city business revenue rose by 66.3% year-on-year to RMB8.7 billion; inter-city business revenue reached RMB49.73 billion, presenting a YoY rise of 43.5%; and the international and Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan business revenue increased by 10.6% year-on-year to RMB16.7 billion. The rapid growth of express delivery industry mainly benefits from e-commerce, particularly from fast development of online shopping sector.

Business Revenue of Express Delivery Companies above Designated Size in China, 2007-2012 (Unit: RMB bn)

Chinese express delivery industry in 2012 characterizes the followings:

First, private enterprises enjoy a rising market share. In the first three quarters of 2012, the business volume and revenue of private express delivery enterprises are both expanding in terms of market share. In particular, the business volume of private express delivery companies accounts for 73.6% of total express delivery business volume, an increase of eight percentage points from the same period of last year; and the business revenue of private express delivery companies holds a share of 58.5% in total express delivery business earnings, a rise of 11.1 percentage points from the same period of last year.

Second, the M&A in the industry or restructuring pricks up market competition. In July, 2012, China Honglou Group merged CCES and established CSL Express; in August, 2012, HNA Group officially divested TTK Express business, and the CEO Xi Chunyang of the original Shanghai Shentong Metro Co., Ltd acquired 60% equities of TTK Express at the price of RMB160 million.

Third, express delivery and electronic commerce mutually penetrate, and industrial competition tends to be diversified. Currently, a great number of B2C vendors like 360buy, VANCL and still makes huge investments for logistics construction in spite of facing capital pressure. Taking 360buy for example, in June, 2012, it obtained the business license for express delivery business. From October 15, 2012 on, 360buy put an end to its cooperation with Shentong Express (STO), and in Nov., 2012, 360buy express opened services to the vendors on the platform.

Since 2012, the leading express delivery companies have made more investments into the e-commercial field but mostly failed in the end. Take example for SF Express, in May, 2012, the e-commercial website under the flagship of SF Express was officially put into services online, targeting at the medium- and high-end food B2C. In September of 2012,’s visit flux performed not so well, and its stock turnover also showed a big problem. In October, 2012, kept a low profile and changed the person in chief.

Last, foreign express delivery companies speed up their presence in China. In September of 2012, FedEx Express China Co., Ltd and UPS Parcel Delivery (Guangdong) Co., Ltd got Chinese express delivery business license. In October, 2012, UPS announced to newly open three medical healthcare facilities in Asia-Pacific Region and develop Chinese pharmaceutical logistics market.
