New service for parcel delivery from AliExpress launched

20 February 2017

Surely many people have heard that AliExpress was required to assign a tracking number to all shipments. This was the reason for inaccessibility of free delivery for goods exceeding $2. However, it also made it possible to obtain free tracking numbers for tracking orders, which was previously provided only for more expensive goods. Now, it has become known about the launch of a new system, which will make possible the above-mentioned changes in the terms of delivery.

The fact is that the Russian Post, Hong Kong Post and the logistics company Cainiao, the latter of which is part of Alibaba Holding, have launched a new product: the "Simplified Registered Mail". The new service is designed to combine the advantages of express delivery and the already familiar postal channel and will help to abandon the unregistered small packages. Thus, buyers from the trading platform AliExpress in Russia will be able to track the location of purchased low-cost items.

It is reported that through this innovation consumers will be able to learn not only the actual date of shipment of their purchase, but the arrival at the post office in Russia. Certain advantages will have and senders: they will be able to learn about the fact of receiving a parcel, which will help them to protect themselves from unscrupulous customers.

Recall that this shipping method affects all items from AliExpress $ 2 and above. Previously, they were sent without providing a tracking number and neither the seller nor the buyer could check where the parcel was, while they could be sent by sea or land via intermediary countries, which could not but affect the delivery time, as well as the possibility of loss or damage to cargo.
