One-armed courier delivers 70,000 packages in 2 years
    2018-05-17  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

AT first glance, Tu Yanfang looks no different than other couriers, as he works fast and drives well. But if you take a closer look, you’ll find that Tu has only one arm. He can deliver 100 to 200 packages a day and hasn’t received any complaints, the Daily Sunshine reported yesterday.

Tu, 32, lost his left arm in an accident when he was 14 years old. With one arm missing, it was difficult for him to keep balance at first, and he would fall down if he walked a little too fast.

However, he could make it on his own after two years. He could cook, wash the dishes, read and write with one hand.

In 2010, Tu came to Shenzhen with 5,000 yuan (US$785) and became a street vendor. Every day he would carry several bags of clothes and was busy running between different places like Songgang, Gongming and Fuyong in Bao’an District. Although he had to work from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m., Tu was satisfied with his life and was able to make a living.

In 2014, as Shenzhen imposed a ban on setting up street stalls, Tu nailed down a job at a delivery station and gradually impressed his employer with his diligence and capability.

Because of his physical challenges and unfamiliarity with the business, he didn’t deliver many packages in the beginning and had to take more time to finish his work than his colleagues. Gradually, he became quick at delivering and collecting packages. His good service even earned him the nickname “the one-armed Flash” in the neighborhood.

Because he hasn’t received a single complaint in the past two years, he recently won the excellent employee award from his company. (Zhang Yu)
