Shuttling parcels around for Alibaba and other retailers is creating China's latest wealth explosion, with a surge in shares of S.F. Express making Wang Wei the country's third-richest man.Chinese companies are also counting on opportunity – on Jack Ma of Alibaba and his promise to U.S. President Donald Trump to create U.S. jobs by linking 1 million American small businesses with Chinese buyers.The group includes ZTO Express founder Lai Meisong who listed his company in New York in October and has a $2.7 billion net worth, according to the index; YTO Express Group Co., whose founder Yu Huijiao is now worth $7.3 billion following its reverse takeover on the Shanghai exchange that same month; and Yunda Holding Co.'s Yunda Express, whose Chairman Nie Tengyun's net worth totals $5.3 billion after its backdoor listing in Shenzhen in December.China's package volume totaled 31 billion last year, and online shopping led by Alibaba's shopping platforms, Taobao.com and Tmall, were responsible for 60 percent of it, according to the State Post Bureau. The Tonglu gang companies currently rely on Alibaba for as much as 70 percent of their deliveries.
