JD Industrial Technology Cooperates with Chalco Materials
by Ling Cao
JD Industrial Technology, a business unit under JD.com providing industrial products and services, signed a partnership in Internet procurement services on May 11 with Chalco Materials, a subsidiary under Chalco Aluminum Corporation of China (Chalco), the only large company in China’s aluminum industry that’s engaged in the whole value chain.
As Chalco Materials’ intelligent and digital procurement solution provider, JD Industry Technology provides an integrated service covering procurement, merchandise, operation and supply chain, helping the company achieve digital transformation.
In just four days of preparation, based on JD’s long-time development of its MRO standard program building, JD has helped Chalco Materials match the demand of over 500,000 specific industrial products, making the procurement process more efficient. JD is also coordinating with Wafangdian Bearing Group in Dalian, ABB, Schneider Electric and Delixi Electric to provide related resources and services to Chalco.
JD can utilize its own capabilities in smart supply chain to help Chalco design cost-effective fulfillment solutions, especially for many of their factories in lower-tier markets.
Yuesheng Chen, general manager of JD Industry Technology’s manufacturing industry department said, “The cooperation is just a start. We will continue to optimize our service for Chalco and provide comprehensive solutions, helping to improve the quality and efficiency of their procurement abilities.”
In the future, both sides will expand cooperation in co-building fulfillment centers and forward warehouses, further enhancing the service quality.
