Wang began his career in the textile industry, working for print and dyeing factories located in Shunde District, Foshan. Situated in the Guangdong province, the area was a hub for both manufacturing and commerce, with easy access to Hong Kong by river.

During the early 1990s, Wang recognized that local factories were facing difficulties in delivering their samples to buyers based in Hong Kong, due to long shipping times. To address this issue, he established ShunFeng Express, a small courier service comprising just six employees.

As of 2017, SF Express has expanded into a multinational courier service with a staggering workforce of over 400,000 employees.
