Alibaba’s logistics business unit, Cainiao Smart Logistics Network, is launching an international shipping service that focuses on the delivery of important items, such as surgical masks. That was done because the COVID-19 pandemic has affected shipping efficiency in many countries.
The service will cover more than 20 countries and regions, including Europe, the United States (US), United Arab Emirates, Japan, Singapore and New Zealand.
“Services can be ordered through the Cainiao Guoguo application. Which records more than 100 million users every year, in China,” the company said, quoted from KrAsia.
To provide this service, Cainiao has partnered with 4PX Express, a cross-country e-commerce solution provider headquartered in Shenzhen, Guangdong Province.
4PX Express works closely with various global logistics companies, such as FedEx, UPS, TNT and Aramex to provide cross-country shipping.
The company took advantage of the large volume of shipments and significant discounted offers.
