JD.com’s JD Logistics Unveils World’s Largest Intelligent Logistics Park with Integrated Warehousing and Sorting Capabilities
On June 14, JD.com announced that the company’s logistics division, JD Logistics, launched phase 2 of its Kunshan Asia No.1 Intelligent Logistics Park in Jiangsu province, China. With a floor area of over 500,000 square meters, combined with the existing phase 1, JD’s Kunshan Asia No.1 Intelligent Logistics Park now stands as the world’s largest intelligent logistics park, equipped with cutting-edge integrated warehousing and sorting capabilities. The facility is capable of sorting an industry-leading 4.5 million parcels per day.
At the heart of the Kunshan Asia No.1 Intelligent Logistics Park is an automatic sorting center, boasting more than 80 state-of-the-art sorting lines and an expansive fleet of 10,000 intelligent sorting robots, which ensure an unrivaled sorting accuracy rate of 99.99%. During peak seasons such as JD’s 618 Grand Promotion, China’s largest mid-year shopping festival, the sorting center operates around the clock, processing over 4.5 million parcels per day. This five-fold increase in efficiency, compared to traditional methods, sets an industry benchmark, establishing the Kunshan Asia No.1 Intelligent Logistics Park as a global leader in logistics operations.

With the launch of Phase 2 of the Logistics Park, JD’s logistics network now ensures over 93% of JD’s retail orders from the East China region, spanning Jiangsu, Zhejiang, Shanghai, and Anhui can be delivered same-day or next-day, covering a population of 200 million people.
JD.com’s commitment to providing a premium shopping experience prompted the development of Asia’s largest and most automated intelligent logistics hubs, from which the “Asia No.1” moniker originates. In October 2014, JD.com inaugurated its inaugural Asia No.1 intelligent logistics park in Shanghai. Today, JD.com has established numerous Asia No.1 logistics hubs across the nation, forming Asia’s most extensive group of intelligent warehousing facilities.
Complemented by JD’s expansive warehousing network, consisting of over 1,500 warehouses, the company now proudly guarantees the “211” promise: orders placed before 11:00 AM will be delivered the same day, while orders placed before 11:00 PM will arrive the following day, to almost every corner of China.
On June 14th at 2:05 am, a box of freshly caught hairy crabs from Suzhou was shipped from the Kunshan Asia No.1, which became the 10 billionth parcel processed by Asia No.1 facilities.
JD Logistics’ technology products and solutions have also garnered significant acclaim among external clients across diverse industries, including electronics, industrials, apparel, medicine, and automobiles. Notably, during the first quarter of this year, JD Logistics experienced a remarkable 59.8% year-on-year increase in revenue from external clients, accounting for approximately 70% of its total revenue.
JD Logistics is also replicating elements of its world-class logistics operation overseas. In February 2023, the company launched its third warehouse in California, U.S., growing the company’s footprint to over 1.3 million square feet of warehousing space throughout the state. By bringing its expertise to international markets, JD Logistics aims to redefine global logistics standards and drive innovation in the industry.
