JD Logistics announced on December 26 that it has entered a partnership with SGMW (SAIC-GM-Wuling Automobile), in which the automobile company has transferred the operation of its four auto parts warehouses in China to JD Logistics.
Leveraging JD Logistics’ supply chain ability, the new partnership will optimize delivery lead time to SGMW’s 4S shops from twice a week to six times a week, with next-day delivery being a standard service for SGMW’s clients.
JD Logistics will help SGMW accurately plan the inventory, reduce storage redundancy, and improve efficiency of fund utilization. Its experience in serving industry clients will help SGMW drive fulfillment rate and increase sales.
A representative from SGMW expressed that the company hopes to bring more digital and smart technologies into its supply chain management through the partnership with JD Logistics. The two parties will also explore pre-production logistics and vehicle transportation, according to JD Logistics.
The latest collaboration marks a deepening of a partnership that started in 2019 between the two companies in integrated supply chain for auto parts. As a leading technology-driven supply chain solutions and logistics services provider, JD Logistics now provides tailored supply chain solutions for industries including FMCG, home appliance, apparel, 3C, automotive, fresh produce and more. In the third quarter of 2022, JD Logistics’ revenue from external customers increased to approximately RMB 24.9 billion yuan, accounting for nearly 70 percent of total revenue for the quarter.

2023 marks the eleventh year that JD.com will provide standard delivery service during the Chinese New Year holiday, in 366 cities and 1,700 districts and counties across China. JD Logistics has announced that it will provide RMB 500 million in allowances to front-line workers who opt to working during the holiday, ensuring benefits higher than the national standard.
The allowances will also be used for a family gathering program that enables employees’ kids to travel from other places to visit their parents working away from home. This program, which was announced in 2014 by Chairman Richard Liu, gives employees who live apart from their children a special cash payment so that the children can travel to visit their parents during the CNY holiday. Later the program was extended to childless employees as an extra stipend for their holiday work.
Hui Liu is a female courier in Beijing, and she was the first employee on her team to apply for working during the holiday. She plans to bring her two children from Handan, Hebei province to Beijing to celebrate the Year of Rabbit. “My husband also supports my decision,” she said. “Apart from all kinds of allowances, I can also earn thousands of extra RMB.”
For these employees, JD Logistics will also offer a more flexible rotation policy so that they can enjoy vacations before or after the week-long national holiday. Jiquan Zang, a courier in Beijing, recently visited his parents-in-law before the holiday; Binbin Cui, a courier in Qinghai province plans to go back to his hometown in Henan province on the day of Lantern Festival, which is 14 days after the Chinese New Year’s Day; Wenxiong Chen, a courier in Fujian province, has promised his daughter to bring her to visit the ancient city of Licheng after this holiday.
Eleven years ago, JD.com was the first e-commerce company in China to commit to delivery during CNY, featuring standard service without delays or extra fees. This year, Deppon Logistics will also join JD Logistics in securing delivery. Moreover, 600 autonomous vehicles and over 100 indoor robots will also join the crew to fulfill last-mile delivery in 30 cities in China.
