Alibaba’s logistics unit Cainiao Network and its overseas e-commerce platform AliExpress have reached a new strategic cooperation agreement with Spain’s national postal service Correos to boost cross-border logistics between China and Europe.

Cainiao Network will work with Correos to provide efficient cross-border logistics including warehousing, transportation and last mile delivery for AliExpress, caijing.com reported, citing a company statement.

It’s another step forward to achieve 72-hour global delivery for Chinese and European small- and medium enterprises, it said.

“With the fast logistics network built by Cainiao Network and Correos, AliExpress can bring high-quality goods from China and other countries to Spanish consumers in a shorter time,” said Wang Mingqiang, general manager of AliExpress.

The cooperation agreement is also expected to boost the exports of small and medium-sized Spanish enterprises on AliExpress.

Cainiao Network said it has partnered with the national postal service of several countries, including China and Russia, as well as a number of international airlines such as Singapore Airlines and Emirates.
