JD Adds Air Cargo Route for Inner Mongolian Meat Transportation during CNY
by Yuchuan Wang
A JD all-cargo aircraft Boeing 737-300F took off in Hohhot, Inner Mongolia on Jan. 19, adding a provisional route from Inner Mongolia to Tianjin, to meet the increasing demand for meat products and secure in-time delivery during the Chinese New Year period.
Inner Mongolia produces the most mutton and is the second largest origin for beef in China. With the launch of the route, consumers in dozens of cities including Shanghai, Hangzhou and Guangzhou can receive their orders of Inner Mongolian beef and mutton in 24 hours, while consumers in over 200 cities will be able to receive orders in 48 hours.
Joining JD’s Tianjin-Wuxi and Tianjin-Shenzhen air cargo routes, the Hohhot-Tianjin route helps to connect Inner Mongolian meat products to the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei Area, the Yangtze River Delta and the Great Bay Area of Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macau by air.
Over 200 beef and mutton merchants from Inner Mongolia have formed partnerships with JDL. “Logistics coverage, freshness and fulfillment timing are closely affecting our sales,” said a representative from Yunchuang E-commerce in Inner Mongolia. “JD Logistics has the advantages in these areas.”
