by Yuchuan Wang
JD Logistics was approved by the China Federation of Logistics & Purchasing (CFLP) as a five-star cold chain logistics provider at the 10th conference on evaluation of cold chain logistics enterprises held last week. As the highest star-level, CFLP’s evaluation is a stamp of approval for JD industry-leading capabilities in cold chain logistics, which involve keeping products within a specified low-temperature range from production to consumption.
Since 2014, JD Logistics has built out an extensive cold chain logistics network, launching JD Cold Chain in 2018. As a leading F2B2C (Factory-to-Business-to-Consumer) service platform for cold chain warehousing, transportation and delivery, JD Cold Chain now provides one-stop logistics services for fresh produce, medical supplies and more goods.
Moreover, JD Cold Chain is adopting advanced technologies including robotics, AI, 5G and big data to build a supply chain business and data platform that drives industry efficiency.
Last year, China’s first goods-to-person system for a cold chain warehouse was put in use in JD’s Wuhan Asia No.1 fulfillment center, which is a large-scale rotating shelf system enabling products to be automatically transported from -18℃ storage to the hands of waiting warehouse staff, helping them avoid the freezing cold conditions that were once standard.
“We will collaborate with industry partners to coordinate industry resources, promote the establishment of a standard system and the intelligentization of the industry,” said Robin Chu from JD Cold Chain. “Through the continued exploration of this business model and application of innovative technologies, we hope to accelerate the healthy development of China’s cold chain logistics.”
