JD Logistics (JDL), JD.com’s logistics arm, has joined hands with China Southern Airlines to launch a “Ship-to-Home” luggage express delivery service for Chinese travelers.
Starting from December 6th, travelers to the destinations of Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport, Beijing Daxing International Airport, Shenzhen Bao’an International Airport and Wuhan Tianhe International Airport can book the service through China Southern Airlines’ app or the airline’s baggage inquiry desk, and JD Logistics will ship luggage directly to travelers’ home or designated addresses.

“The service allows a luggage-free travelling experience, so customers can save time instead of waiting at the baggage carousel,” said a representative from JD Express, the express delivery business of JD Logistics. “Travelers can also view the real-time location of their baggage through the China Southern Airlines’ mobile app.”
The service is priced starting from RMB 49 yuan (~US$ 7.5). Luggage will be delivered within the same day or next day, thanks to JD Logistics’ reliable express delivery network. To ensure peace of mind for travelers, the service also provides insurance for each item of luggage.
Earlier this year, JD Logistics announced its plan to speed up the efficiency of express delivery, providing 24-hour delivery service in over a thousand counties and tens of thousands of townships in China.
