Tighter security restrictions affecting parcel deliveries in Hainan

Staff from SF Express, one of the country’s biggest express services said that packages going to the capital from Hainan Province have already been suspended, and vice versa.

Express services in Beijing are reportedly still operating, but according to staff "it’s hard to say when your package will arrive because security check has tightened up. I suggest that you wait till the Congress ends to ship your parcel”.
