China Facts: 540 million parcels delivered on Singles Day



Intriguing question - at the 'Singles Day' e-commerce shopping (11th November 2016) 540 million delivery orders (parcels) were generated during the 24-hours spree (of which around 9-10% are returned!). This is nearly ten times the average daily volume, but even a slow shopping day in China generates an enormous number. By the reckoning of the State Post Bureau, 21 billions parcels were delivered during the first three quarters of 2016*)
