Yiwu is one of the best cities for conducting comprehensive e-commerce in China, mainly because Yiwu has always insisted on taking the express logistics industry as the thrust of promoting market transformation and upgrading and a breakthrough point in reform and innovation. A powerful logistics system extending in all directions by roads, railways, sea routes, shipping routes, postal routes, and the Internet has been built to achieve full coverage of important cities across the country, achieving a logistics attraction effect, which has been drawing more and more e-commerce companies to send their packages through Yiwu.
