Chinese authorities Wednesday issued a set of new rules on data management in the e-commerce and logistics industries, barring companies from cutting data flows to rivals.

The rules, jointly released by the State Post Bureau and the Ministry of Commerce, restrict e-commerce platforms and couriers from blocking competitors’ data to prevent users from freely choosing services.

The post bureau said e-commerce and logistics data should be shared in an orderly manner to increase business growth and improve efficiency.

A data war between leading courier SF Express and Alibaba Group-backed Cainiao Smart Logistics Network caused business chaos for days in June 2017 after the pair cut each other out from sharing delivery data and forced partners to choose sides. The disputes were resolved after the post bureau stepped in to mediate.
