The "Double Eleven" online shopping festival has enjoyed an increasingly popularity in China since initiated in 2009. The turnover of e-commerce and the volume of express delivery have increased remarkably.

According to the State Post Bureau of PRC, the express delivery volume is expected to reach 1.5 billion during this festival, an increase of 35% over the same period last year. Hunan Provincial Postal Administration initially estimated that during the "Double 11" period in 2017, the number of mail order (express mail) will exceed 135 million, an increase of more than 50% over the same period last year. Daily handling capacity will be more than 13 million, 2 to 3 times higher than the normal amount.

This set of data means an unprecedented challenge. In response to the challenge, the Hunan postal industry started the work of guaranteeing express service in advance this year and set up a corresponding leading group. The "Work Program on Guaranteeing Delivery Service During Peak Season in 2017" was formulated, specifying related responsibilities and requirements.

In 2017, the express delivery peak season will last for 107 days, mainly including the "Double 11" online shopping festival, the "Double 12" e-commerce promotion period, the Christmas Day, the New Year's Eve, and the 2018Spring Festival Eve.
