Before and after the Spring Festival each year, a greater part of Chinese people are on the run for going home. Train is naturally the cheapest and most convenient traffic means, but hard-to-get tickets cause the migratory people awkward.

Moreover, it is cold and inconstant before and after the Spring Festival; mountainous area are foggy; most of the returning motorcycles are seriously overloaded and not subject to complete and thorough maintenance before start-off; the road condition is so complicated that the motorcycles are worn severely; some migrant workers have to ride for a few days. The long and arduous journey results in grievous hidden danger to the safety of the workers. It is thundering hard to go home.

All migrant workers riding motorcycles home can get help from the Zongshen service points. Hot tea and hot food warm up the hearts of the migrant workers who have been riding in cold wind for more than ten hours. In the meantime, because the returning journey to Guizhou and Chongqing is long in distance, complicated in road condition and variable in weather, Zongshen Group dispatches service and medical coaches to escort the returning workers.
According to introduction of officer who is charge of the public welfare activity “Safe Journey to Home-Zongshen Helps Migrant Workers Home Happily”, there were more than 9800 motorcycles, 20,000 people passing through Guangdong Zhaoqing just in 26th January.
