China Post Service Types

China Post, as the official postal service of China, offers a range of shipping methods to accommodate different needs for both domestic and international mail and parcels. Some of the common shipping methods include:

China Post Registered Air Mail

This is a cost-effective and secure method for sending small packages weighing up to 2 kg internationally. Packages sent via this method can be tracked online.

China Post Ordinary Small Packet Plus

This is an economical option for sending small, lightweight items (up to 2 kg) without tracking information. It is suitable for low-value items due to the lack of tracking and limited insurance coverage.

China Post EMS (Express Mail Service)

This is an express service for sending documents and parcels both domestically and internationally at a faster speed. EMS offers door-to-door delivery, tracking services, and some level of insurance coverage.

ePacket

Developed for e-commerce merchants, ePacket is a faster and more affordable shipping option for lightweight parcels (up to 2 kg) being sent from China to various countries, such as the United States, Canada, Australia, and some European countries. ePacket provides end-to-end tracking services.

SAL (Surface Air Lifted)

This shipping method combines surface and air transport, offering a balance between cost and delivery time for parcels weighing between 2 kg and 30 kg. It's available for select destinations.

China Post Air Parcel

Suitable for sending heavier parcels (up to 20 or 30 kg, depending on the destination country) with tracking information. Delivery times are generally longer than EMS but shorter than surface mail.

China Post Surface Mail

This is a slow and low-cost shipping method for heavy packages (up to 20 or 30 kg, depending on the destination) sent by sea or land transportation. Transit times can take several weeks or months, and tracking may not always be available.

China Post Service Area

China Post, the official postal service of China, is responsible for providing mail services, including letter post, parcel service, EMS (express mail), and logistics services within the country and internationally.

Domestic Package Tracking

China Post provides coverage across mainland China (China EMS), including provinces, autonomous regions, and municipalities. It also serves Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan.

International Package Tracking

China Post has an extensive international presence and offers its services to most countries and regions worldwide. This includes North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Africa, and Latin America.

China Post Tracking Number Format & Examples

China Post tracking numbers typically consist of 13 alphanumeric characters. The format and examples are as follows:

  1. The first two letters indicate the type of service or mail category:
  • R: Registered Mail
  • C: International package services such as ePacket, Small Parcel, etc.
  • E: EMS (Express Mail Service)
  1. The following nine digits are unique identifiers for the specific item being shipped.
  2. The last two letters represent the country of origin, in this case, CN for China.

Examples:

  • RA123456789CN (Registered Mail)
  • CP123456789CN (Parcel or ePacket)
  • EE123456789CN (EMS)

How long does China Post take to get to USA?

The delivery time for China Post packages to the United States can vary depending on the shipping method used and factors such as customs clearance or transit delays. Here are some estimated delivery times for different China Post services:

  1. China Post Ordinary Small Packet Plus: This service is typically used for small, low-value items and does not provide full tracking information. Delivery can take anywhere from 4 to 8 weeks.
  2. China Post Registered Air Mail: This service offers tracking and usually takes about 2 to 6 weeks for delivery.
  3. ePacket: This is a faster, cost-effective service with tracking, specifically designed for e-commerce shipments. It generally takes around 10 to 20 business days for delivery.
  4. China Post EMS (Express Mail Service): This is an express courier service that offers faster delivery times and comprehensive tracking. Packages usually arrive in the United States within 7 to 15 business days.
Why does China Post take so long?

China Post may take longer to deliver packages due to several factors:

  1. Shipping method: Different shipping methods have varying transit times. Lower-cost options like China Post Ordinary Small Packet Plus or China Post Registered Air Mail tend to have longer delivery times compared to faster services like ePacket or EMS.

  2. Distance: The geographical distance between China and the destination country can impact delivery times, with longer distances typically taking more time for transit.

  3. Customs clearance: International shipments need to go through customs clearance in both the origin and destination countries. This process can sometimes cause delays, especially if documentation is incomplete, or there are issues with the contents of the package.

  4. High volume periods: During peak seasons like holidays or online shopping events, postal services often experience a significant increase in the volume of packages being processed and shipped. This can lead to temporary delays in processing and delivery times.

  5. Destination country's postal service: Once the package reaches the destination country, the local postal service takes over the final delivery. Any delays or inefficiencies within the local postal system can impact delivery times.
