Cargo sales in China reached US$540 million this year, up 35% from last year.

The cargo company has applied to the State Post Bureau for permission to offer express services.

Chinese firms don’t have that level of logistical sophistication yet. Another handicap is the number of aircraft."
China Cargo Airlines will only have 20 aircraft compared with the hundreds of planes in the UPS and FedEx fleets, Cao said.
