Logistics express industry looks forward to new opportunities
On the 26th, the Beijing Guangzhou high speed railway was officially put into operation. Yangcheng Evening News reporter learned that after the operation of Wuhan Guangzhou high-speed railway, Guangdong express enterprises have tested the water for high-speed railway express transportation between Guangzhou and Changsha. Now the opening of Beijing Guangzhou high-speed railway will bring new opportunities to China's logistics and express industry.
"Prior to the opening of Wuhan Guangzhou high-speed railway, there was high-speed railway express transportation between Guangzhou and Changsha." The person in charge of a well-known private express enterprise in Guangzhou told reporters that at present, about 80% of express delivery takes road transportation and about 15% takes air transportation. In fact, high-speed rail has advantages over highway in terms of timeliness and cost. After the opening and operation of Beijing Guangzhou high speed railway, many node cities in the middle are areas with strong demand for express services, with a lot of space.
It is understood that in mid December, the State Post Office, the Comprehensive Transportation Research Institute of the national development and Reform Commission and the China Express association formed a joint research group to conduct field research on express enterprises using high-speed rail to transport express in Guangdong Province.
In addition to the express industry, traditional logistics industries such as bulk commodity transportation are also expected to benefit from the opening of Beijing Guangzhou high-speed railway and the improvement of freight capacity of Beijing Guangzhou line. The data show that after the opening of Wuhan Guangzhou high-speed railway alone, the freight capacity of Beijing Guangzhou line has increased by 10.9%, which improves the transportation demand of key materials such as coal, oil and grain with limited long-term transportation capacity and foreign trade freight of Hong Kong and Macao.
