Why is Double 11 Express this year so fast?

  "The reason why'express delivery is faster than takeaway' lies in the use of the'pre-sale pre-sale model'." BOE said to reporters from that warehouse production will begin when consumers pay the deposit, and pre-sale products will be pre-sold. Go to the express site closest to the consumer.

  In addition, Huang Wei, general manager of Cainiao's domestic supply chain, introduced that one reason for the faster double 11 express delivery is the "pre-sale speed delivery."

Cainiao's supply chain and many merchants jointly predicted that the products that consumers have paid the deposit will be sunk to the express sites and communities around the consumers in advance.

After paying the final payment at 0:30 on November 1st, the package will be shipped from around, and the "payer" will instantly become the "consignee".
