20160707ou 一中两外锵锵三人行 今日话题: 快递! 最能让你女友立刻高兴的一句话莫过于:"You need to cry dear!" -"有你的快递!" :) 快递小哥们没日没夜的工作换来了我们能最快速度收到快递的开心和喜悦, 那么他们在不开心时,压力大时肿么办呢? 近日,有公司发明了快递小哥解压室。。。 Lincoln: Now, couriers in the capital – that’s Beijing, by the way, in case you weren’t paying attention – are indulging in a stress-relief room, jointly set-up by Cainiao, logistics platform under the Alibaba Group, and express delivery service Yuantong Express, according to a report by The Paper. Now, we all make use of delivery from time to time at some point in our time here. E-commerce in China is particularly easy, but it seems that the people who actually do it are under a bit of stress, Yoyo. Yoyo: Yes, people are getting very stressful, especially for this delivery guys. Nowadays someone come to help them because they build this emergency room which can help them relieve their stress. Brian: Yeah; so it’s got a massage chair, it’s got some nice mats and it also has plastic chickens you can squeeze that will shriek or squeak or something. And that – these’ve proved popular for them there. These guys – they seem to work pretty darn hard. It’s not like working in the field or in a factory, but you’re on the go, on your little motor-trike, zipping around the city, and then you’re out, running up the stairs to deliver stuff; you give them money, they give you change or whatever, and then they’re gone – they don’t stick around. Yoyo: Delivery guys play a role as the backbones of all the delivery industry in China. You can see these statistics show that express delivery industry in China is expanding at a rate six times that of GDP, which is around 40% growth, and annual deliveries look to set to reach 100 billion very soon, [LW: Yeah] so they really play a key part. Lincoln: It’s true. It’s basically – e-commerce doesn’t exist without it, really doesn’t. And we all know how important e-commerce is in China, and how quite ubiquitous it is, how many people can use it, and how it’s also helped people maybe in rural communities who can also get things delivered to them, but at a reasonable price. Yoyo: And not only that, but also you can see that sometimes they can get very tired because everyone wants their goods to be delivered very soon. One example I can make is that I bought a huge box of books early in the morning, 6 AM, and then I get it in the afternoon [BK: Yeah, that’s…]. That was extraordinary. Brian: That is very fast. And this is one of those areas where China is actually, has progressed further than the United States. For example, in the US if you want…I mean, there’s not that many options for buying stuff online. For a lot of people, you know, it’s Amazon [LW: Ebay] that’s, [LW: Amazon, Ebay] some people, [LW: Yeah, Amazon, Ebay] Ebay’s not as big as it used to be [LW: No] I feel. Lincoln: Amazon’s probably the biggest one. Brian: Yeah, yeah. And there’s – that’s pretty much the main one, whereas you got – you obviously have Alibaba’s stuff; Jingdong; Amazon’s also here; that’s the majority of the market pretty much. Lincoln: And just to kind of put it into perspective how far ahead China kind of is: in the US, the average freight rate is 15 dollars per kilogram for a two-day ground delivery between distant cities. In China, the going rate is about four yuan, so that’s about 60 cents. Kind of show you how far ahead China is in terms of that. And, honestly, it’s one of the things that I think is impressive. It’s incredibly impressive. It’s something that I use fairly regularly – not as regularly as I used to, but it is something that I find quite impressive.
