Operational since 1997, China Postal Airlines (CPZ) was founded by the Chinese Postal Bureau (51%) and China Southern Airlines (GUN) (49%). It was originally set up to operate domestic postal services, but in 2006 introduced international scheduled services to South Korea and Japan. Its fleet currently includes 8 737-300Fs, 2 737-300QCs and 8 737-400Fs.

The 1st airplane is expected to be in place by late 2013. The 4 freighters are expected to help China Postal Airlines (CPZ) to meet soaring demand in the domestic Chinese Express Mail Service market and will help solve mismatches between capacity and traffic volume on some routes caused by the restriction of its own 737F Freighter fleet.

January 2014: On January 7, 2014, China Postal Airlines ((IATA) Code: 8Y) (CPZ) launched a cargo route to link Xi'an and Incheon, which is (CPZ)'s 3rd cargo service to S Korea following its Beijing to Incheon and Shijiazhuang to Incheon routes.

China Postal Airlines (CPZ) signed a contract with Air China Cargo (CAO) for chartering 4 757s in August 2013. The new-introduced 757F is the last freighter delivered from (CAO), which will be deployed to operate Beijing to Nanjing to Beijing charter service to expand (CPZ)'s independent routes network. Up till now, (CPZ) operates a fleet of 26 airplanes, including 22 737Fs and 4 757Fs.

The 4 757Fs, with a max cargo capacity of 30 tons are deployed on Chengdu to Nanjing to Chengdu, Changchun to Shenyang to Nanjing to Changchun, Guangzhou to Nanjing to Guangzhou, and Beijing to Nanjing to Beijing service. The delivery of the new 757F not only eases traffic pressure on Express Mail Service for (CPZ), but also optimizes its independent network and boosts competitiveness in the mail express and cargo transport market.

December 2015: China Postal Airlines (CPZ) has ordered 10 Boeing 737-800NGF freighters to extend its fleet of express air cargo airplanes. The order also includes an option for 7 Boeing 757-200 passenger airplanes that (CPZ) will convert into cargo carriers.

The order will be the 1st next-generation narrow body output from Boeing’s 737 converted freighters (BCF) program, which take existing airplanes and retrofit them for cargo use. (CPZ) uses a mix of Boeing 737-300 and 737-400s for its 26-strong fleet.

(CPZ) President Yufeng Li called it a historical order for both companies. Li said the airplane’s lower operating costs and better efficiency would help “to ensure (CPZ)’s continued success in the [express freight] industry.”

Boeing (TBC)’s 1st 737 BCF will be converted from Boeing 737-800s, and will be followed by an order for 15 of the same airplanes from recent express cargo startup, (YTO) Airlines, based in Hangzhou.

Both carriers are hoping to tap into the rapidly expanding express cargo market in China, supplying cargo services for high tech firms and e-commerce suppliers in 2nd-tier cities across China.

Boeing (TBC) said the airplanes would address “a growing need in the market,” and said it was working closely with multiple customers in China on similar orders.

(TBC) has forecast that the Chinese cargo market will grow by +6.7% by 2035.

February 2016: China Postal Airlines (CPZ) has ordered 10 conversions of 737s to 737Fs. The airplanes will be primarily used to carry express cargo on domestic routes.

Boeing (TBC) has predicted growth in China's e-commerce market to boost demand for cargo F airplanes. China's e-commerce market is expected to exceed that of the air-express market.

September 2016: 757-21BF (25888, B-2823, converted 2016-08), (25890, B-2825, converted 2016-09) and 757-2YO (26156, B-2827), 757-236 (25598, B-2835) converted at Xiamen and ferried to Changzhou 2016-10).
