JD Adds Two Asia No.1 Fulfillment Centers Ahead of Singles Day Promotion
by Yuchuan Wang
This Singles Day (November 11th), JD has newly added two Asia No.1 fulfillment centers in Changchun, the provincial capital of Jilin province and Hohhot, the capital of Inner Mongolia. JD is operating 30 Asia No.1 fulfillment centers which are considered to be Asia’s largest intelligent warehouse clusters.
JD will also launch a highly automated sorting center in the Asia No.1 in Zhengzhou, Henan province, during this year’s Singles Day promotion period. A new robot system for picking up goods will be put into use in its Beijing Asia No.1 fulfillment center.
In addition to the continuous investment in warehousing, JD will provide even faster delivery service to nationwide consumers during the upcoming grand promotion. For pre-sale products, once consumers have put the down payment, JD will transfer stock to the nearest delivery stations so that a minute-level delivery can be realized as soon as the consumer has completed the full payment. Consumers in nearly 200 cities in 32 provinces, municipalities and autonomous regions will be able to experience the new “deliver in minutes” service for categories including beauty, small home appliances and electronics.
JD Logistics previously announced several measures to support merchants in preparation for the upcoming sales season. To ensure smooth and highly efficient fulfillment operations during the event, JD Logistics is geared up to perfect each stage of its end-to-end supply chain process, to provide integrated logistics solutions to its merchants and unparalleled delivery services to customers.
