Suspended deliveries affecting online businesses

Suspended deliveries affecting online businessesWith the Spring Festival fast approaching,  a lot of delivery companies are suspending businesses since some of their employees are going home to celebrate the festival. The shortage of staff affected many deliveries especially deliveries around Shenzhen.

Although deliveries outside Shenzhen are not affect by the holidays , it would take time since train ticket going to provinces are sold out. Some delivery companies are also charging an extra 5 to 10 yuan for each delivery done during the holidays. Domestic express services suspended their deliveries to places outside the Pearl River Delta.

The suspended deliveries took a heavy toll to online retailers and customers that are dependent on this deliveries. During this time a lot of online shops would advise buyers that deliveries will resume after the Spring Holidays. Some online shops even closed earlier as expected since the suspension of deliveries happened earlier this year when employees opted to go home a few weeks before the festival. Customers that have already purchased items online will have to wait until the festival is over to have their items delivered to them.
