JD Logistics Launches Service for Winter Sports Lovers
by Yuchuan Wang
Recently, JD Logistics launched a special express service for the transportation of personal snowboarding and ski gear. As Beijing prepares to welcome the 2022 Winter Olympics, snow sports like skiing and snowboarding have become even more popular among Chinese people.
For the first time, skiers and snowboarders can travel to and from ski resorts without carrying their long and heavy skis and snowboards. JD Logistics will deliver it with shockproof packaging directly to resorts within 24 hours.

Currently, the service is available in several of the most popular ski resorts in China, including Yabuli in Heilongjiang province and Songding in Henan province.
“As some of the most popular sports in winter time, skiing and snowboarding have been favored by more and more people in recent years. But it is also a pain point for many people to take their gear by public transportation such as airplanes or trains considering the irregular shape and large size,” said a representative from JD Express, JD Logistics’ express delivery business. “We have arranged couriers to commute to ski resorts this winter to enable an unprecedented convenient skiing and snowboard experience for winter sports lovers.”
This is not the first time that JD Logistics has expanded its express delivery service scope. Earlier this month, on December 6th, JD launched a “Ship-to-Home” delivery service in collaboration with China Southern Airlines, to provide a luggage-free travelling experience for passengers by-air.
