When you're staying in Dalian, there are a lot of things that you need to re-learn, one of those things is delivery service. Making delivery in Dalian is a bit tricky. Almost all the companies that provide services only operate in Chinese. So you might need to get some help from your Chinese friends in order to deliver your things.
The process of delivery is simple.
Prepare the goods that you want to get delivered.
Call the delivery service (for example ZTO: 4008-270-270) and make an appointment about the time and the place to pick up the package.
The delivery service will weight your package and you need to fill in a form that contains the information of where and to whom the package wants to be send.
Pay your delivery service depending on the weight and the length of delivery.
However, if you want to receive or deliver goods internationally, these companies might be big helps for you! You can check their tracking number and services in English through their websites. Even though to use the delivery service itself, you still need to acquire some Chinese language.
