JINGDONG Property Continues Global Expansion with Key Overseas Projects


JINGDONG Property (also known as JDP, or JD Property), a leading and fastest-growing modern logistics infrastructure development and management platform, has made significant strides in expanding its global footprint, marking its presence in Europe and Asia Pacific with 39 projects. This growth highlights JDP’s ability to rapidly establish modern logistics infrastructure in new markets.

JINGDONG Property’s entry into Europe began in mid-2022 with the acquisition of a 361,000-square-foot warehouse in Milton Keynes, marking its first transaction in the U.K. In late 2023, JDP further solidified its U.K. presence by acquiring a state-of-the-art logistics warehouse in Preston. Positioned near major logistics nodes, this newly built warehouse showcases JDP’s commitment to environmental sustainability with features such as substantial EV parking, a seven-acre ecological area, BREEAM excellence certification, 15m eaves height, and 50 docks, making it a prime hub for industrial activities.

In late 2022, JDP also ventured into The Netherlands with a smart logistics park in Utrecht’s ‘Lage Weide’ business park. Ideal for national, regional, and last-mile distribution, this park is close to essential transport routes and features 64 loading docks, 213 parking spaces, and solar panels, furthering JDP’s commitment to sustainable logistics and efficiency.

Another key milestone was the investment in the first and second phases of Apollo, Ansty Park in mid-2023. This development, located 10 miles northeast of Coventry City Centre in the U.K., is now a prime example of a Grade A property within JDP’s portfolio, specifically designed to support the logistics and manufacturing sectors. Apollo comprises seven units across two phases, with the first three units completed in early 2023 and fully let. These units are recognized for their sustainability, achieving BREEAM Excellent and EPC A ratings. The second phase includes four recently new completed units, designed to meet high sustainability and efficiency standards, featuring renewable energy sources like rooftop solar panels and electric vehicle charging stations.

The completion of the Apollo project has significantly improved logistics and transportation efficiency in the region, providing easy access to the U.K.’s motorway network. This strategic location, combined with a focus on green and sustainable practices, not only lowers operational costs but also boosts efficiency for businesses operating within Apollo.

Additionally, JDP’s growth in Asia Pacific was marked by a recent completion of a modern logistics warehouse in Indonesia, located in the Jababeka Industrial Estate next to the Cikarang Dry Port area. With 23,000 square meters of leasable area, this facility adopts a flow-through design warehouse model equipped with high-standard features for optimal logistics operations.

JDP’s overseas projects have attracted partnerships with notable international and local companies, contributing to the development of a high-quality industrial cluster in the area. Looking ahead, JDP is committed to further expanding its global footprint, with a focus on delivering customized logistics infrastructure that meets the diverse needs of businesses expanding internationally.
