A unique personal identification tag may replace the traditional 6-digit postal code in China in future. As a way to cope with explosive growth in express delivery, the plan envisions assigning each person a unique code for their personal address and each package with an ID tag that includes information about the courier and tracking.

031The plan, proposed under a national key research project into a system for global location coding, can reduce costs in distribution and vehicles, helping usher in an era of unmanned express delivery.

The new code system is characteristic of locatable, indexable, computable and of automatic spatial association.

033For courier companies, the new system could cut the area needed in logistics sorting warehouses by 27 percent, the number of vehicles by 71 percent, human courier workers by 41 percent and reduce the total shipping cost by 44 percent.
