China E-commerce Drives Airfreight

Jan 23, 2018 | Industry News

Airfreight volumes to China are continuing to be driven by the demand of the e-commerce market, which was reflected in the growth of Uniserve’s air export volumes during 2017.

China continues to be the world’s largest and fastest growing e-commerce market, with its online retail sales outperfoming the United States by an additional 80%. Online sales now account for almost 15% of the Chinese domestic retail market.

Last year, Chinese courier company YTO Express Group purchased a majority shareholding in Uniserve’s long time partners – On Time – which provided us with integration into one of the largest logistic networks across Asia.

 

 

Leighton Bonnett, Uniserve’s Airfreight Director commented “2017 was a great year for our Asian exports, with the majority of our development being built around the online retail sector.”

“The YTO merger was a big influence. Their experience and infrastructure within e-commerce logistics provided us with the perfect platform for customers to take advantage of a rapidly developing consumer market.”

Uniserve’s airfreight product was recognised last year with a record breaking fifth BIFA Airfreight Winners award.”

“We believe that this, in combination with our position at the top of the retail logistics market and YTO’s e-commerce offerings, is a win-win situation for our customers and for continued air export development in 2018.”
