AliExpress prepares European delivery network for Singles Day

Alibaba owned e-commerce giant AliExpress has improved its European cross-border shipping services ahead of the China based ‘Singles Day’ Global Shopping Festival on 11 November.

As part of this the Cainao Smart Logistics Network has launched an air freight route between China and Europe to speed up deliveries by 30%. Key markets such as France and Spain will have deliveries in as few as 10 working days, with more European countries planned on similar routes in the coming days.

Cainao’s intra-European road freight network will support AliExpress merchants by generating the most efficient loading plans and transport routes for its fleet in real-time.

The road freight network will work with local last mile delivery providers and is able to connect warehouses and transport hubs in Spain, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, the Czech Republic and the Netherlands, achieving three-day delivery in Spain, France and Poland, and five to seven days in other European countries.
