Looking at the consumption trend from the "monthly average of tens of billions of items" in express
The volume of express delivery business is one of the important physical indicators for observing the operational trends of China's economy. According
to the National Postal Administration, from January to September this year, the postal industry completed a total of 115.11 billion postal services, a year
-on-year increase of 13.6%. Among them, the express delivery business volume (excluding postal group parcel business) has completed a total of 93.12
billion items, a year-on-year increase of 16.4%.【BlackJack Games】
In recent years, China's express delivery industry has developed rapidly, from an average of 10 billion items per year in the past to an average of 10
billion items per month today. Especially since the beginning of this year, the express delivery business has exceeded 10 billion pieces for six
consecutive months, with an average daily express volume exceeding 330 million pieces. Behind this is the strong growth and development resilience
of the industry, and it is also a reflection of the sustained and stable recovery of China's consumer market and the continuous enhancement of market
vitality since the beginning of this year.
The remarkable achievements of the express delivery industry are closely related to the priority given by various regions and departments to restore
and expand consumption since the beginning of this year. For example, the "Measures for Restoring and Expanding Consumption" proposed 20 strong measures and formed a package of policies to promote consumption with key policies in various fields and categories.
With a series of consumer promotion policies continuously exerting significant efforts and enhancing market vitality, new forms and hotspots of
consumption continue to emerge, and the consumer market maintains a stable recovery trend. The fundamental role of driving economic growth is
becoming more prominent. According to data released by the National Bureau of Statistics, from January to September this year, the total retail sales
of consumer goods reached 34210.7 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 6.8%. Among them, the retail sales of consumer goods other than
automobiles reached 30727 billion yuan, an increase of 7.0%. Meanwhile, data shows that from January to September, the national online retail sales
reached 10819.8 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 11.6%. Among them, the online retail sales of physical goods reached 9043.5 billion yuan,
an increase of 8.9%, accounting for 26.4% of the total retail sales of consumer goods in society. This is an important manifestation of the increasingly
active online consumption.
In fact, with the increasingly diverse consumption scenarios on internet platforms, online consumption has become an important support for boosting
market vitality. The "September 2023 China Express Development Index Report" released by the National Postal Administration recently shows that in
the first three quarters, the collaborative development between the express delivery industry and e-commerce continued to deepen, helping the online
economy continue to improve and supporting the steady growth of online retail sales of physical goods. Since September, express enterprises have
optimized customized solutions for seasonal fruits and vegetables, seafood and other special products, and further promoted online consumption.
"919 E-commerce Festival" and Mid-Autumn Festival related promotional activities have been carried out in succession. There is a strong demand for
moon cakes, fresh food, local products and other delivery. From September 18 to 27, the daily business volume exceeded 400 million pieces for 10
In addition, according to the "2023 China Online Retail Top 100 Report" recently released by the China Chain Store Association, the online retail
industry in China has entered a stage of steady growth, with the online sales scale of listed enterprises continuing to increase. The sales revenue
of the top 100 online retail enterprises exceeds 2.02 trillion yuan, an increase of 13.2% year-on-year. The entry threshold for the top 100 online retail
enterprises has increased from over 280 million yuan last year to over 500 million yuan this year.
Some high-end consumer brands that have never been "electrocuted" before are taking online business as the core of their development,
accelerating their embrace of the digital wave. According to the "Insight Report on Digital Trends in the Chinese Luxury Market (2023 Edition)",
the consumption of high-end consumer goods in China is expected to reach 550 billion yuan in 2023, with a year-on-year growth rate of 15% to
20%. The penetration rate of online shopping channels has maintained rapid growth, accounting for 46% of all shopping channels.
A leaf knows autumn. Behind the data on express delivery business volume is strong consumer demand, reflecting the resilience and potential
of China's economic development, and reflecting the sustained recovery of China's economic operation.
