Cainiao Network and AliExpress, both under Chinese e-commerce powerhouse Alibaba, have joined hands with Correos, Spain's national postal service, to speed up cross-border logistics between China and Europe.
Cainiao Network, Alibaba's logistics arm, will work with Correos to provide efficient cross-border logistics services including warehousing, transportation and last mile delivery for AliExpress, Alibaba's online global retail marketplace, according to a strategic cooperation agreement signed between the three parties.
Wan Lin, president of Cainiao Network, said the agreement will offer better logistics solutions to the large number of Chinese and European sellers.
"With the fast logistics network built by Cainiao Network and Correos, AliExpress can bring high-quality goods from China and other countries to Spanish consumers in a shorter time," said Wang Mingqiang, general manager of AliExpress.
Besides facilitating cross-border logistics, the cooperation agreement is also expected to boost the exports of small and medium-sized Spanish enterprises on AliExpress.
Cainiao Network said it has worked with more than 3,000 logistics companies worldwide in a bid to build a global logistics network. It has also partnered with the national postal service of several countries, including China and Russia, as well as a number of international airline companies such as Singapore Airlines and Emirates.Source: China Daily
