On the 26th, the Beijing-Guangzhou high-speed railway was officially opened for operation. The Yangcheng Evening News reporter was informed that after the Wuhan-Guangzhou high-speed rail operation, Guangdong express companies have tested the high-speed rail express transportation between Guangzhou and Changsha. Now the opening of the Beijing-Guangzhou high-speed rail will bring new opportunities to China's logistics and express delivery industry.
"Before the Wuhan-Guangzhou high-speed railway was opened, there was high-speed rail express transportation between Guangzhou and Changsha." A person in charge of a well-known private express delivery company in Guangzhou told reporters that at present, express transportation accounts for about 80% by road, and about 15% by air. In fact, in terms of timeliness and cost, high-speed rail has advantages over highways. After the Beijing-Guangzhou high-speed railway opened, many of the node cities in the middle are areas with strong demand for express delivery services, and there is a lot of space.
It is understood that in mid-December, the State Post Bureau, the National Development and Reform Commission's Comprehensive Transportation Research Institute, and the China Express Delivery Association formed a joint research team to go to Guangdong Province to conduct field surveys on express mail companies using high-speed rail transport.
In addition to the express delivery industry, traditional logistics industries such as commodity transportation are also expected to benefit from the opening of the Beijing-Guangzhou high-speed rail and the improvement of the freight capacity of the Beijing-Guangzhou line. Data show that after the Wuhan-Guangzhou high-speed railway was opened, the freight capacity of the Beijing-Guangzhou line has increased by 10.9%, which has improved the transportation demand of key materials such as coal, oil, and grain with limited long-term transportation capacity, and Hong Kong and Macao foreign trade freight transportation.
