by Yuchuan Wang
JD took home the first, second and third prizes of an award for progress in science and technology, issued by the China Federation of Logistics & Purchasing at the 13th National Modern Logistics Technology Innovation Conference.
JD Logistics’ “AI vision program for JD’s 5G logistics park” won first place for a significant technology breakthrough in the construction of smart logistics infrastructure. Leveraging the advantage of 5G technology in data transmission, mobile edge computing technology and AI, JD’s ambitious program can monitor logistics parks in real time and automatically recognize abnormal productions.
In second place was JD Logistics’ “automated solution for bulky item warehouses,” a technology that prioritizes the order of inbound and outbound goods and plans corresponding routes. The technology helps warehouses store the maximum inventory for bulky items at lower operation costs.
Finally, the company’s “Smart dispatching platform” and “logistics SaaS (software-as-a-service)” won the third prize. Using big data and AI forecast technology, the smart dispatching platform can arrange the whole order fulfilment process methodically by determining individual transportation routes and frequency.
From warehousing and transportation to last mile delivery, JD has built an integrated logistics network that can shorten the fulfillment process to improve efficiency and reach customers faster with high precision. Since 2018, the company has been opening up its logistics solutions and technology to brand owners and industry peers.
