China Postal Express & Logistics signed a strategic cooperation agreement on Sept. 5 in Beijing with Yiguo.com, a fresh fruit e-business platform, for the delivery of Yangcheng Lake hairy crabs.
According to the agreement, China Postal Express & Logistics will build a warehouse with Yiguo.com along Yangcheng Lake, origin of the crabs, in east China's Jiangsu Province. They will jointly offer crab delivery services for Yigou.com, Tmall supermarket, Suning and other e-commerce platforms.
With that capability, hundreds of cities nationwide will enjoy overnight crab delivery services and suppliers will not have to worry about excessive losses caused in distribution. It not only greatly reduces the cost of logistics but also expands their market.
The number of cities enjoying overnight delivery services from Yiguo.com will increase by two to three times. And the EMS business will extend from production warehousing to consumer warehouses, laying the foundation for entering business-to-customer distribution.
In addition, the two parties will deepen cooperation in more fresh foods, and jointly promote specialization and standardization in the domestic fresh food industry.
