With the advent of the Double 11 War, in addition to the open and secret battles between the major e-commerce platforms, one of the big things to watch is the price increase of express delivery. On the eve of November 11, it has been rumored that major express delivery companies will raise prices during this year's Double 11. As major e-commerce platforms prepare for Double 11, ZTO took the lead in raising prices. A few days ago, ZTO Express released the "Notice to Clients on the Response Plan for the Peak Season", which is called to respond to the increase in the cost of venues, transportation, and labor in the peak season.
ZTO Express will adjust the express fee from November 11, 2019. Coincidentally, YTO’s official website also announced that it will adjust express delivery charges from November 11, 2019. In recent years, it seems to have become commonplace for express special database companies to raise prices on the occasion of Double 11. However, despite the frequent price increases by major express companies, the pain of Double 11 express delivery in the hearts of users seems to have always existed.
Consumers: wool comes from sheep During the double 11 period, the hand-pickers who often shop online are probably the most painful for the express delivery experience, and can even be described as gnashing their teeth. The first is the pain of speed in delivery time. Usually, the delivery time may be 3-4 days. During the Double 11 period, some products have a relatively normal delivery time of seven or eight days, and some express delivery even takes more than 10 days. The one-hour delivery, same-day delivery, etc. claimed by many platforms no longer exist, and are only limited to a few orders.
