About China Post

China Post, officially known as China Post Group Corporation, is the state-owned postal service of the People's Republic of China, functioning under the State Post Bureau. As the primary postal authority in China, it offers an extensive range of services that cater to both domestic and international needs.

China Post's services encompass a wide array of offerings, including domestic and international mail delivery, newspaper, journal, and book circulation, postal remittance, stamp issuance, postal express delivery, and logistics services. Additionally, it engages in e-business, confidential correspondence communication, postal financial services, and a variety of postal agency businesses, all sanctioned by the state.

While China Post is renowned for being the most economical option for international postal services from China, it is known to be slower compared to other global postal services like TNT, DHL, Federal Express, and UPS, which are also available in the country. Despite this, China Post stands out for its reliability and extensive network, making it a preferred choice for sending parcels both within China and internationally.

The transit times for parcels can vary widely, influenced by factors such as weather conditions, customs inspections, address verifications, and other operational considerations. For international shipments, delivery times can range from as quick as 3 days to as long as 180 days, with most parcels successfully reaching their destinations.

China Post collaborates with various postal services worldwide to ensure efficient and effective global mail delivery, underlining its commitment to connect China with the rest of the world through its postal and logistic services.

For shoppers and businesses alike, China Post represents a trusted and legal postal option, ensuring that parcels, whether small or large, are handled with care and precision throughout their journey.
