JD Logistics and Tencent Smart Retail jointly announced the launch of JD-Tencent Cloud Warehouse at the 2021 JD Logistics Cloud Warehouse Partner Conference held on Apr. 17 at JD’s headquarters in Beijing. The new solutions will provide systems, branding and marketing to merchants, MCN (multi-channel network) organizations and warehousing companies.
With the rise of omni-channel retail and e-commerce livestreaming, the industry is faced with diversified customers and channels, and unpredictable fulfillment pressures. Leveraging Tencent’s online private traffic scenarios such as WeChat mini program and JD Logistics’ merchandise and logistics abilities, the JD-Tencent Cloud Warehouse solution will help clients navigate the changing retail market to better serve customers and increase the operations efficiency while lowering costs.
“Through the JD-Tencent mini program based on the Tencent cloud mall, merchants can quickly launch their shops on WeChat. The seamless connection between the two companies will enable convenient advertising and integrated supply chain services,” said Liguang Zhou, head of JD Logistics’ cloud warehouse ecosystem business. Tencent’s smart retail technologies and JD’s logistics technologies will also be opened up to partners.
