Data shows that the business volume of domestic express service companies has been completed last year. 50.71 billion pieces, a year-on-year increase of 26.6%. Among them, it is worth noting that Yunda has completed a total of 6.985 billion express delivery services each year, an increase of 48% year-on-year, and the growth rate is much higher than the industry average growth rate, ranking first among major express companies. In terms of ticket size, YundaBusiness volume Last year, the average daily ticket volume reached about 19 million, and ticket holdings and market share surpassed Yuantong, Shentong, and SF Express, ranking second in the industry, directly catching up with Zhongtong Express.
According to the data: Yunda, founded 20 years ago, is an enterprise integrating express delivery, logistics, e-commerce distribution and warehousing services. It has more than 26,000 business outlets and its services cover all parts of the country. In the first quarter of 2019, revenue was 6.684 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 151.60%.
Speaking of the development history of domestic express delivery companies, Zhejiang Tonglu is a name that cannot be avoided. Born here The business volume reached 27.28 billion last year, taking most of the market share. Nie Tengyun, the founder of Yunda, was also born in a poor rural family in Tonglu.
Last century In the 1990s, after graduating from technical secondary school, he joined Shengtong (the predecessor of Shentong) to help his brother Nie Tengfei take care of the business. They rode bicycles on the streets and alleys to solicit business, and then stood on the train overnight to transport goods I arrived in Shanghai. At that time, there was no navigation. I didn’t know how many maps were turned over while looking at the map while delivering the goods. But the hard work was worthwhile. In the past few years, the business has grown bigger and bigger. However, my brother suddenly left and let Shentong Express Changed his surname, so Nie Tengyun decided to leave the companyThe company set up a separate portal. With the assistance of his wife Chen Liying, Yunda was formally founded.
Speaking of which, this is an enviable "husband and wife". The two graduated from the same school together, from campus love to marriage, and then started their own business from scratch. Along the way, they are not only husband and wife, but more like confidants and teammates. Moreover, compared with other bigwigs in the industry, the couple are extremely low-key, and it is almost impossible to find relevant information on the Internet. However, the development of Yunda is obvious to all. From the original only more than 30 employees, it has developed into a team with 150,000 couriers today, basically achieving 100% coverage in cities above the prefecture level.
Of course, such results were not achieved overnight. Because just four years ago, both of them were at the bottom of the Tongda Department in terms of business volume and income. The development speed can even be described as slow, and the year-on-year growth rate of its business volume that year At 36%, the industry growth rate during the same period reached 48%. For a long period of time, it was not seen by opponents.
After that, Yunda Freight established a leading intelligent information system platform , To ensure the safety and timeliness of express mail, as well as the rapid increase in business volume. Secondly, the enterprise has formed a platform-based and asset-light operation model by continuously optimizing the network layout. With the types of freight services and service qualityWith the continuous improvement of volume and management level, the continuous increase of customer demand and the expansion of new business, the market share of Yunda freight services will maintain a steady growth. In just three years, its market share rapidly jumped from 10.5% to 13.8%, leaping to the second place. In Nie Tengyun's words, it means "practice internal strength."
In his view, doing business is not a 100-meter sprint but a long-distance race. Having learned the lessons of the decline in services caused by the rapid expansion of their peers, they turned all the hub transshipment centers into self-operated operations and improved the headquarters' ability to control the network while expanding the business scale. In addition, the quality of services is also steadily improving. In recent years, we can see the continuous emergence of new technologies and new technologies, which will help further enhance the competitiveness of enterprises.
Some reports pointed out that the industry is in a period of continuous transformation and upgrading, and technology will continue to promote the innovation of enterprise core business models. Needless to say, use technology to further improveEfficiency and cost reduction are the only way for express delivery companies to develop. Last year, Yunda's research and development expenses increased by 28.30% year-on-year. In addition, a 3.9 billion plan was thrown out for the construction and upgrade of the transshipment center, and increased investment and transformation of automation equipment. The effect of these measures is very obvious. The cost of single-ticket transportation has decreased by 11.60% year-on-year, showing a downward trend for four consecutive years. With cost leadership strategy, enterprises have the initiative to compete. Some institutions even predict that, in accordance with this development momentum, Yunda is expected to become the industry's first in 2021 and achieve a surpassing Zhongtong.
