Real-name system to be adopted in courier services, paper says

China’s State Post Bureau said on Monday that Beijing city and several provinces, including Guangdong, Yunnan, Xinjiang and the Tibet Autonomous Region, will begin implementing this year a real-name identification system for courier services users, Beijing Times reported Tuesday. Under the system, courier service users will need to provide their actual names, addresses and show identification documents, the report said. The new rule came after a person was killed by a poisonous package delivered through courier service in December last year, exposing security loopholes. According to the Post Bureau, 9.2 billion packages were delivered through couriers in China last year, next only to the United States in the world.
