With the development of electronic business, the increase in express packages has caused innumerable express packaging wastes that lead to many problems, such as resource waste and environmental pollution. To achieve sustainable development, China should urgently develop green manufacturing of green express packaging. A questionnaire is designed to investigate consumers, e-commerce sellers, and express delivery practitioners from three research dimensions, namely, overpackaging, green packaging materials, and express packaging recycling. The six key factors uncovered with gray relational analysis are the lax supervision of express packaging; the shortage of green packaging materials and professional Research and Development (R&D) personnel; the recycling of express packaging; the lack of industry standards, laws, and regulations; materials for express packaging; and diversified difficulties of recovery. Then, green manufacturing countermeasures for developing green express packaging are proposed using Teoriya Resheniya Izobretatelskikh Zadatch (TRIZ). Strengthening the supervision of packaging and formulating plans for green talent training are necessary in the short term. In the medium term, focus should be on the monitoring of programs and R&D support for enterprises. For the long-term strategy, concerned establishments and/or authorities must retain professionals, raise public awareness of environmental protection, and establish a standardized recycling system. TRIZ improvement strategy can be introduced into the green manufacturing of green express packaging to increase the possibility of successful and sustainable development of the use of green express packaging.
