Nippon Express, Alibaba to team up in China-bound shipping

Nippon Express and Alibaba will offer cheaper shipping from Japan to China.

TOKYO -- Nippon Express will work with e-commerce giant Alibaba Group Holding to ship Japanese goods to China for around 30% less than current prevailing rates.

The Japanese shipper will transport goods from companies doing business on Alibaba's platform to China, while an Alibaba affiliate will handle home delivery. Goods can either be flown across the sea when ordered or shipped by surface in advance and stored in warehouses.
