Chronopost France partners with SF Express to accelerate its growth in China

Chronopost and SF Express have announced the signing of a commercial agreement aimed at improving the quality of service and transit time for small parcels from France to China.

Christophe Cornilleau, International Director at Chronopost France, commented, “The Chinese market is now exploding, with the growth of e-commerce and increased international trade. Proposing an ever more efficient, competitive and disruptive offer by improving deadlines, coverage and rates was for us essential. Our objective today is to deliver the world in a different way and to initiate levers for our international customers to always meet and anticipate their expectations.”  

This partnership allows Chronopost to offer French companies new product offerings. Namely, it says it will offer quicker delivery times thanks to SF Express’ expertise in Chinese last mile delivery, and the Chinese courier will also provide value-added services. Collaboration between the pair will allow for easier express and regulatory customs clearance. Finally, SF Express will provide an interactive delivery service for last mile delivery, with the driver calling the customer to provide details of availability, contact details and will also provide tracking in real time.
