Residents of Wuxi, a producing area of renowned Yangshan honey peaches in East China's Jiangsu province, can now send the specialty directly to their clients, friends or relatives in Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.
SF Express, a leading Chinese courier enterprise, started a direct delivery of honey peaches service for individuals to Hong Kong this year. Any box of the fruit weighing no more than five kilograms can be sent by SF Express, which also provides professional packaging, cold-chain transportation, and whole-process visual monitoring.

The courier company has also set up three warehouses exclusively for honey peaches in Wuxi with a total area of nearly 4,000 square meters.

Wuxi-grown honey peaches can be delivered as far away in China as Urumchi, Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region as well as to Singapore and Dubai.
According to SF Express in Wuxi, people in most of the cities in China can taste fresh Wuxi-farmed honey peaches in 48 hours.
In the latter half of the year, SF Express, JD Express, and DHL will increase Wuxi flights and routes to offer efficient and high-quality air service to local companies in manufacturing, production of agricultural and sideline products, as well as cross-border e-commerce.
