JD Opens Small Home Appliance Warehouse in Its “Capital”
by Yuchuan Wang
JD Logistics officially opened a warehouse for small home appliances on May 11th in Cixi, Zhejiang province, which is known as the home appliances capital of China. The new warehouse, and JD’s existing large home appliances warehouse established in the city in 2019, will facilitate the growth of manufacturers in Cixi.
Cixi is one of three home appliances manufacturing bases in China, along with Qingdao, Shangdong province and Shunde, Guangdong province.
Through the warehouse, JD Logistics will provide manufacturers and merchants with integrated supply chain services including one-stop in and out bound warehousing, and fulfillment across China. JD also provides worry-free after-sales service to help merchants directly handle product returns, product detection and maintenance.
“The launch of the warehouse will enable us to provide comprehensive services for home appliances manufacturers and merchants in Cixi,” said a representative from JD Logistics. “We will be exploring warehousing solutions for both small and large items in the future and advance the experience for clients in the industry.”
Both of the warehouses in Cixi adopt the “warehouse-near-factory” model which locates warehouses near manufacturing clusters to greatly improve the efficiency of first mile logistics.
