JD Speeds Up Delivery by Enabling Air Transport from 310 Cities
by Yuchuan Wang
JD Express, JD Logistics’ express delivery business, announced today that it will further speed up its express delivery services nationwide. It is expected that parcels from 310 cities in China can be delivered by air through JD Express by September. The number of next-morning and next-day delivery routes will be increased by 50% or more.
Apart from its partnership with Zhejiang Loong Airlines and Zhongyuan Longhao Airlines to invest in all-cargo aircrafts, JD also leverages cargo spaces from airlines including China Southern Airlines, Air China and China Eastern Airlines among many others to provide faster services.
At the same time, JD Express will optimize its operation efficiency from warehousing, sorting, transferring and delivery to advance the fulfilment time by at least 3 hours, enabling more lower-tier cities to enjoy 24-hour cross-province delivery. JD Express is also committed to returning delivery fees for delayed parcels in 140 cities.
“Last year, we announced the comprehensive acceleration of our express delivery service,” said Jun Fan, head of JD Express. “We will further raise the proportion of next-morning and next-day deliveries to provide a fast and high-quality express delivery experience for nationwide customers.”
