Parcel pick-up service in China
Asked by Pierre F. | 6/25/2016 6:17:50 AM
I would like to know if it's possible to register as an international customer with China Post to pay for parcel pick-up service in China?
Example of operation:
We would ask our vendors in China to contact China Post when the parcel is ready for pick-up, providing our unique customer identification and account number. This service could be matched here in Canada Post to complete the parcel delivery chain. A reciprocal public pick-up / delivery service could be organised in Canada and elsewhere in the world.

Hi Pierre F. ，
Of course you can. But you need to sign contract with China Post first. Your parcel couldn't contain something listed in China Post forbidden list. After that, they will give you an account which enable you print the customer's address and contact number easily with printer. You could paste the paper on the boxes and then call China Post to pick up. But you should send for example 3 parcels at least for one time I think. Or, they couldn't offer pick up service. Also, you should find the right China Post office to sign the contract in your city. Not every office offer the service.
In fact, most of China e-commerce sellers use agencies to send their parcles. If you could find a good agency to do that for you in your city, the price will be much cheaper than China Post.

Thank's for your reply.
Just to make sure that there is no confusion here, you understand that we would::
1- Only do this with our suppliers from China after purchasing of the goods
2- The delivery address printed on the label sent to the would always be ours
3- Only the sender address and contact information in China, parcel content description, would change from label to label.
3- You would first receive a email from us in Canada with sender address in China for pick-up followed by a pick-up confirmation from the sender (our supplier) when this parcel is ready to be shipped to us.
Can the shipping fees be established in advance from parcel size and weight?
It is assumed that there would be no forbidden or hazardous content in these parcels.

I think it's hard to do that. China Post couldn't receive your email. You'd better let the supplier to contact China Post directly by phone. For pick up service, I heard someone said China Post only could pick up packages sent by air. If you want use ship or land, they don't offer pick up service.

China Post need to convince AliBaba, DHGate and other seller platforms to use China Post AIR as an option for their shipments. The shipping rates with other suppliers have become so overpriced they are absurd.
