JD Logistics announced on December 26 that it has entered a partnership with SGMW (SAIC-GM-Wuling Automobile), in which the automobile company has transferred the operation of its four auto parts warehouses in China to JD Logistics.
Leveraging JD Logistics’ supply chain ability, the new partnership will optimize delivery lead time to SGMW’s 4S shops from twice a week to six times a week, with next-day delivery being a standard service for SGMW’s clients.
JD Logistics will help SGMW accurately plan the inventory, reduce storage redundancy, and improve efficiency of fund utilization. Its experience in serving industry clients will help SGMW drive fulfillment rate and increase sales.
A representative from SGMW expressed that the company hopes to bring more digital and smart technologies into its supply chain management through the partnership with JD Logistics. The two parties will also explore pre-production logistics and vehicle transportation, according to JD Logistics.
The latest collaboration marks a deepening of a partnership that started in 2019 between the two companies in integrated supply chain for auto parts. As a leading technology-driven supply chain solutions and logistics services provider, JD Logistics now provides tailored supply chain solutions for industries including FMCG, home appliance, apparel, 3C, automotive, fresh produce and more. In the third quarter of 2022, JD Logistics’ revenue from external customers increased to approximately RMB 24.9 billion yuan, accounting for nearly 70 percent of total revenue for the quarter.
