China Post – How to track the package of a shipment
Every day thousands of users buy products from China through the most popular eCommerce on the web such as eBay, Amazon or even other e-commerce that reside in China for example. AliExpress, Banggood and Wish. Unfortunately, the china post tracking integrated into these e-commerce does not very often provide exhaustive information in real-time, showing little specific and almost always generic information in the shipping status of the order.
It can also happen to suffer delays in deliveries (which in some situations can even reach 30/40 days), due to unreliable delivery mechanisms used for delivery from China to Italy, thus risking not seeing the package delivered in the estimated time. because late or stuck in no one knows which country due to some bureaucratic problem. However, it is always better than the shipment is lost!
To help this problem there are several tracking systems, useful to find out more in-depth in which corner of the world the package is located and therefore understand if there have been problems with the shipment.
What is China Post
As can be easily understood, China Post is the Official Chinese Postal Service. The company was founded in 1997 and the head office is located in Beijing. This postal service handles both internal shipments to China and external shipments around the globe. As for foreign ones, China Post makes use of some agreements with other postal services to facilitate shipments.
China Post’s most important agreements: EMS ePacket
One of the most important services that China Post relies on is China EMS (ePacket) which also uses Sea / Airmail (deliveries by Air and Naval couriers). This company, whose acronym stands for Express Mail Service, allows you to take advantage of an international express postal service available in 180 countries. A service characterized by quality, speed and competence.
Another important agreement as far as we are concerned is the one made with Poste Italiane with Poste Delivery Globe. This service allows you to send or receive packages outside the European Union. In addition, China Post also has agreements with Amazon to ensure fast and above all reliable shipments.
However, it often happens that shipments made by China Post are lost or leave no traces. This is caused by various factors such as technical problems, confusion, incompetence, distraction, slowdowns, misunderstandings or “crafty salesmen”.
