per order delivery fee Only earn two cents!
The profession of courier has reached the most dangerous time in history!
In recent years, as e-commerce giants have rushed to the beach to sink the market, the price war between express companies responsible for the transportation of e-commerce parts has also been shaken, and there is no express delivery fee. The lowest, only lower, the courier at the end of the express delivery is experiencing the moment of life and death.
There are reports that in some places, couriers can only earn 25 cents for one delivery!
You can only earn 25 cents if you send an express delivery? Is this too exaggerated? We usually call a SF Express for a shipping cost of 10 yuan?
Yes, when we usually call express delivery, we don’t pay the express delivery company less. For example, a single express fee paid by individual customers to SF Express is usually around 18 yuan, and the courier fee paid to Tongda is also around 10 yuan.
However, if you understand the”layers of the express industry After the”charging” mechanism, we can understand why only the negligible profit of 25 cents is finally allocated to the courier.
The first common sense I want to tell you is:the complete express delivery business is not only the part of delivery, but at least including the four parts of pickup, transfer, delivery and information service.
The second common sense I want to tell you is that these four links can be further divided into seven more detailed distribution links.
Ideally, the user pays 10 yuan for a single order, and the proportion of the cost of these seven links is as follows:3 yuan for the party (outlet), 1.6 yuan for the receiver For couriers, the distribution fee in the city is 0.6 yuan, and the freight to the distribution center is 0.3 yuan. The headquarters receives a face-to-face fee of 1 yuan, a transfer fee of 2 yuan, and a delivery fee of 1.5 yuan.
However, in real life, the above ideal The situation basically does not exist, why? Price wars are everywhere!
After the price war starts, the above ratio will change. Among them, the face-to-face income, transit fees, and transportation costs are basically fixed. The reduced part can only come from The profit source for franchise outlets and couriers.
It is understood that due to the drop in delivery fees, in July this year, the delivery fee of couriers in Anhui was reduced to 40 cents per order. After deducting the SMS and telephone fees, the average fee Only earn 0.25 yuan.
What is the concept that one order can only earn 0.25 yuan? Even if a courier can deliver 1,000 pieces a day, the maximum daily income is only 250 yuan, and the maximum monthly salary is 7,500 yuan.
Of course, sending 1,000 pieces a day is just a theoretical value:just work for 10 hours a day, and 100 pieces an hour need to be sent, which is 1.67 times per minute on average! Even a magical god who is a clone cannot have such a high efficiency.
express Not delivered to your door,
Notifying to pick up at designated locations will become more and more common!
After so many years of development, the express delivery industry has not only failed to advance in a healthy and formal direction, but has become an industry with the most extreme polarization between the rich and the poor, which many people have not thought of.
On the one hand, due to the rapid increase in express delivery business volume in recent years, the market share of many express delivery companies has continued to rise, the company’s valuation or market value has risen all the way, and the status of major shareholders has continued to rise.
In the 2019 Forbes Global Rich List, 6 people engaged in express delivery business in China were on the list, which also set a new high in recent years for express delivery companies to enter the global rich list. Among them, SF’s Wang Wei has a net worth of more than 100 billion, and the other founders of”Four Links and One Access” are also worth a lot. The billion-dollar express industry is an endless gold mine!
On the other hand, for many low-level couriers In terms of it, this is a truly paper-thin industry.
In fact, because the profits of couriers have dropped again and again, it has now affected the business layout of the express delivery industry, and it has also affected the stability of express service quality.
For example, nowadays, the couriers of many courier companies do not notify the user in advance when delivering the courier, they directly stuff the courier into the express cabinet, or send a notification to the user to the designated place The SMS of the pickup will end the dispatch work.
If the post is downstairs from your house, the impact on you may not be great. However, some post stations are hundreds of meters away from the user, and there are several traffic lights in the middle of picking up a piece. In the hot weather, what is sent is not light, and the pick up suddenly becomes a A very difficult task.
What many people look forward to is definitely not the express service experience that troubles our lives!
Then, why do today’s courier companies adopt This way of directly placing the express cabinet or notifying the user to pick up the package at a designated location? There is only one purpose:Improve the efficiency of the express delivery industry, and it is convenient for you, but you can’t manage to bring others a worse service experience.
As mentioned above, nowadays, in some places, couriers can only earn 0.25 yuan per order. At this time, we must try to keep the courier’s profit from falling too fast. Increase the number of dispatches. If you still let the courier come to deliver the package at this time, you have to call and communicate with the user to deliver the package, and you have to endure knocking on the door and there is no customer response, how many couriers can be delivered this day?
If things go on like this, none of the couriers will starve to death? The couriers must not escape from the express industry one by one?
Hundreds of thousands of people come every year for”a monthly income of over 10,000″!
But the reality is that although the profits of grass-roots couriers are getting less and less, it is not common for couriers to escape the express delivery industry. On the contrary, there are hundreds of thousands of people who continue to Flock into this industry.
The”2019 Express Market Supervision Report” released by the State Post Bureau shows:In 2019, the express delivery business volume exceeded 60 billion pieces, and the increment exceeded 10 billion pieces again, contributing to the growth of the world express industry The rate exceeds 50%. The revenue of express delivery business exceeded 700 billion yuan, accounting for 7.6‰ of GDP, and the revenue growth rate was 4 times that of GDP growth rate, making a positive contribution to stable growth.
Of course, what’s even more frustrating is that throughout 2019, 200,000 new jobs in the express industry!
In addition to the above-mentioned non-delivery of items to improve the efficiency of the industry, there are at least the following two factors causing this result.
First of all, the overall economic situation in recent years is not optimistic. For many people,”becoming a courier” is a choice they have to face.
In the TV series”Xiaohuanxi”, Huang Lei’s dialect was originally the backbone of the company, but he still did not escape the “35-year-old workplace rule”. Reasonably fired. After leaving the original company, the first thing that dialects who had nowhere to find a job thought about delivering food. In fact, this kind of dialect experience is very representative, especially since the outbreak of this year, it is expected that more college students and intellectuals will be squeezed to the relatively grass-roots tracks such as takeaways, couriers, and taxi drivers. .
Secondly, in the impression of many people, They think that the express delivery industry is a type of work that is allocated according to work, and there are as many rewards as you pay. Now, hundreds of thousands of people enter this industry with the dream of”a monthly income of over 10,000″ every year.
Just like the account calculated above, no matter how hard your heart is, and no matter how strong your body is, as the cost of delivery continues to drop, you can rely on It’s not easy to send pieces to support oneself now, and it is even more an extravagant hope to “make a monthly income of over 10,000” through sending pieces.
So, even in first-tier cities such as Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Shenzhen, wanting to make tens of thousands of monthly income through express delivery is basically a dream.
State of the express industryAlreadySo, do you still want to come in?
