JD Logistics is awarded “Digital Transformation Solution Provider” by Supply Chain Management Review (SCMR), a leading global supply chain industry media. Winners were notified on March 2nd, with an in-person award ceremony to take place in Chicago on April 28 during the NextGen Technology Supply Chain Conference sponsored by SCMR.
JD Logistics was selected for the Digital Transformation category primarily because of its strategy of opening up its services to third parties, a key part of its Open Platform Digital Supply Chain (OPDS)
OPDS was launched during JD Logistics’ annual 2019 Global Smart Supply Chain Summit. The goal of the platform is the enable players of all shapes and sizes to reap the benefits of an agile supply chain regardless of whether or not they have the resources to operate their own supply chain and logistics departments.
JD Logistics advocates for agile supply chains, confident that this is an inseparable part of a successful future-facing business.
Zhenhui Wang, CEO of JD Logistics has said that an open supply chain will “enableveryone, not just the world’s smartest or most technologically advanced companies to participate.” It is this spirit of inclusivity, enshrined within a dynamic framework, that will drive innovation for all.
The NextGen Technology Supply Chain Conference will “recognize companies leading the way in new technologies.” Award categories include AI, Robotics, Analytics, Blockchain, and Digital Transformation.
