除了成交额,今年双11还刷新了一项纪录:
物流订单突破10亿(The number of delivery orders surpassed a billion)
10亿物流订单大致相当于美国20天的包裹量(roughly equivalent to the US 20-day parcel)
10亿包裹连接起来,长度足以绕地球赤道7圈多(long enough to circle the Earth's equator more than seven times)
外媒当然也集体“围观”今年的双十一,各大媒体纷纷报道。
自2009年以来,11月11日这一天被阿里巴巴成功运作成了24小时网络购物节(turned the day into a 24-hour bonanza of online shopping)。
事实上在2012年“双11”就超越了Cyber Monday(‘网购星期一’,美国感恩节过后的星期一),成为全球最大的在线购物节。
而在过去的几年里,双11的交易额已经超过了黑色星期五和网络星期一的总和(more than Black Friday and Cyber Monday's totals combined)
