China’s Street Postman Pats

Sep13_DeliveryEvery morn­ing on the way to work I pass groups of deliv­ery men lay­ing out their parcels on the pave­ment. China has the largest online e-tailing indus­try in the world, so to get the goods to the cus­tomers they use one of the thou­sands of pri­vate deliv­ery companies. Originally if you wanted to send a par­cel you had to use the government’s China Post. But the boom in online shop­ping has cre­ated a huge oppor­tu­nity for smaller, cheaper and quicker deliv­ery ser­vices to prosper. These Post­man Pats, are not allowed inside the cam­pus so they lay the goods on the pave­ment. And then tele­phone the recip­i­ent to come out and col­lect their parcels. So every­day in my depart­ment I see some­one com­ing in with a pack­age or box that they bought online.
