On the 26th, the Beijing-Guangzhou high-speed railway officially opened for operation. Yangcheng Evening News reporter learned that after the operation of Wuhan-Guangzhou high-speed railway, Guangdong express delivery enterprises have tested the high-speed rail express transportation between Guangzhou and Changsha. Now the opening of Beijing-Guangzhou high-speed railway will bring new opportunities to China's logistics and express delivery industry.
“Before the Wuhan-Guangzhou high-speed railway was opened, there was a 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 the current expressway road transport accounted for about 80%, and aviation accounted for about 15%. In fact, regardless of timeliness and cost, high-speed rail has advantages over highways. After the opening of the Beijing-Guangzhou high-speed railway, many of the node cities in the middle are areas with strong demand for express 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, the Comprehensive Transportation Research Institute, and the China Express Association formed a joint research group to go to Guangdong Province to conduct on-the-spot investigations on express delivery companies using high-speed rail shipments.
In addition to the express delivery industry, traditional logistics industries such as bulk cargo transportation are also expected to benefit from the opening of the Beijing-Guangzhou high-speed railway and the improvement of the freight capacity of the Beijing-Guangzhou line. The data shows that after the opening of Wuhan-Guangzhou high-speed railway, the freight capacity of Beijing-Guangzhou line has increased by 10.9%, which has improved the transportation demand for key materials such as coal, oil and grain and Hong Kong and Macao foreign trade freight with limited long-term transportation capacity.
