What is China Post EMS?

China Post Express Mail Service (EMS) is a postal express delivery option offered by the national postal service in China Post. EMS is part of a worldwide initiative originally created by the Universal Postal Union (UPU) to help improve international post and parcel delivery efficiency. EMS postal services are perhaps most used in China with China Post EMS, due to the fact the service is hugely popular with distance sellers for eCommerce.

They offer a range of services including international, domestic, and same-city express delivery, as well as cash on delivery. They also provide solutions for e-commerce platform cooperation, logistics finance, and warehousing.

EMS is a collaboration between some 180 countries' national postal services and therefore offers package delivery across most of the world. Around 8 million parcels are delivered via EMS every week, beginning their dispatch with China Post EMS.

How China Post EMS Works

China Post EMS operates with a focus on efficiency and accuracy, starting from the moment a package is dropped off. When a package is received, the sender is required to provide detailed information on the express mail waybill, including the contents, quantity, weight, and value of the package. This information is important for sorting centers to categorize and prioritize shipments.

The recipient's name and address must be written precisely in English, and it's suggested to include a telephone or fax number for easy contact in case of issues. The address should be comprehensive, including not just the postal code but the exact location to ensure accurate delivery.

The operational mechanics of China Post EMS involve a series of steps, including sorting at specialized centers, delivery, and tracking. Sorting centers use the information provided on the waybill to categorize packages, and tracking numbers are assigned for package tracking.

China Post EMS Delivery Time

Although generally faster than other national postal delivery times, China Post EMS shipping times vary because multiple handlers are involved in the cross-border delivery of goods.

However, China Post EMS usually delivers to the USA and Europe in around 5 to 15 working days, or more depending on the location. China Post EMS does offer delivery in as little as 2 to 5 working days in Asia, however, the remoteness of the destination can impact this delivery time significantly.
