Kuaidi Will Bow to Taobao
Kuaidi delivery is an essential part of the Taobao equation. So when the CNY holiday gave kuaidi workers the week off, Taobao’s business stopped. That may have initiated Taobao’s rumored plans to implement national standards on kauidi companies.
Taobao is responsible for so much kuaidi business, that it makes sense for them to throw their weight around to prevent similar holiday service stoppages in the future. The new standards may also force other compromises from kuaidi companies, such as providing delivery service for more remote areas and more flexible policies to allow recipients to thoroughly inspect goods before signing for them.
