On November 5th, it was learned from the Nanning Municipal Postal Administration that it had already carried out security services in advance for the rush season, and the express delivery enterprises had already been into the state of their readiness. It is predicted that during the Double 11 period from November 11th to 20th this year, Nanning will have nearly 80 million pieces of express items to be handled, and on November 14th or 15th, the biggest day for express delivery, the number of express items to be processed on that day will reach 10 million.
On the morning of November 5th, in the newly built distribution center of Guangxi Yuantong Express Co., Ltd., the trial-operation of a “secret weapon” for Double 11 was carried out. According to Du Bin, deputy general manager of the company, this new distribution center, with a total investment of 350 million yuan and an investment of 78 million yuan for newly-added equipment, was equipped with 10 sets of automatic scanning systems, 12 automatic sorting lines for large parcels, 600 sets of automatic sorting machines for small parcels and 12 security inspection facilities. Du Bin said that this new site was designed to sort 500 pieces of parcels per day, and during this year's Double 11 period, the distribution center was estimated to receive 1.95 million pieces of parcels at most. In addition, the company prepared more operators in advance and increased the delivery vehicles, cooperative stations and agent points, which could effectively solve such problems as a backlog of packages and delivery delay during the Double 11 period.
