“2021 marks the 18th anniversary of JD.com. We want to take this opportunity to highlight the important role of our partners in making JD a success,” said Steven Li, head of overseas planning and execution of JD International Logistics. “UPS has given us great support in developing cross-border and overseas logistics businesses.”
“I am honored to deeply collaborate with JD in their new international business ventures,” said Holly Bingham, Managing Director of International Enterprise Sales at UPS. “Through trust and innovation, we have reached many surprising conclusions that will only grow and change in the future. We are so appreciative of the friendship from JD and look forward to our future projects together.”
JD’s international logistics business started the cooperation with UPS in 2019. The collaboration covers both cross-border and overseas local logistics businesses.
For example, UPS will help brands and merchants on JD.com’s global sales e-commerce platform to fulfill overseas transportation and last-mile delivery to worldwide consumers as well as logistics for merchants and brands shipping to China. On the other hand, the global logistics giant supports JD with local fulfillment of overseas warehouses in countries such as the U.S., Germany, Poland and more.
According to Li, the two parties will further deepen the collaboration in the future to develop businesses in more countries and in multiple formats, to facilitate the highly efficient circulation of global trade.
