JD Logistics: Record Year with More to Come in 2020
At the JD Logistics annual meeting held today in Beijing, Zhenhui Wang, CEO of JD Logistics said, “We have successfully transformed our business from purely providing logistics services to JD.com, to opening up our services to partners in a wide range of industries.”
JD Logistics, an integrated supply chain management solutions provider and independent business group under JD.com, had a breakthrough year in 2019.
Wang added, “None of these breakthroughs would be possible without our 180,000 employees. In 2019, JD Logistics invested RMB one billion in talent development. In 2020, we will invest another RMB one billion in our talent development, and in building an encouraging working environment to foster all kinds of talent.”
A few highlights of JD Logistics in 2019：
- JD Logistics launched Asia’s largest integrated smart fulfillment center in Dongguan, a city in China’s Guangdong province. The logistics park has a construction area of nearly 500,000 square meters, equal to the size of seventy football fields. It can deal with about 1.6 million orders per day. The automatic stereoscopic storing area can store over 20 million medium-sized parcels at a time. The logistics park plays an important role in providing same or next day delivery service to over 100 million people in the greater bay area.
- JD Logistics launched China’s first 5G powered smart logistics park in Beijing.
- JD Logistics signed onto the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), an ambitious global campaign aimed at driving corporate action on climate change. In its commitment to sustainable logistics, as of the end of 2019, JD had used reusable packaging 110 million times.
Wang added with great confidence, “Our next dream is to continue our high-quality growth momentum, optimize client experience and improve efficiency, and become the leading supply chain and logistics service provider in China. Eventually, our dream is to leverage technology to provide value to global clients and become the world’s leading supply chain and logistics provider.”
