JD.com Prepares For The Future Of Industrial IoT


IoT known today connects robots to systems in the retail, industrial, and warehouse industries. The way a supply chain works is through optimizing manufacturing, inventory management, and fulfillment.

JD.com (Jingdong) and its subsidiary, JD Logistics are preparing for an efficient industrial internet of things (IIoT) as the 5G cellular networks emerge. Jingdong already has an effective operating system that rapidly get products to Chinese consumers, but the IIoT will increase that speed dramatically. Their supply chain will become more sustainable, convenient, and efficient to handle a higher ratio of orders.

JD Logistics CEO, Zhenhui Wang believes 5G will power the Industrial IoT and enable a larger scale of continuous connectivity. A 2018 Business Insider Intelligence Report showed that approximately 10 billion devices in the internet of things market. It also made a prediction that investments will reach $15 trillion by 2025. When IIoT hits future markets, robots will communicate with one another with fewer interactions with employees. It increases the reliability and dependability of the supply chain.

Jingdong expects IIoT to handle bigger data using warehouse robots. It will bring remarkable benefits including reduced expenses, supply chain efficiency, and smart dispatching. Industries will operate their businesses safer with low risks to the environment. To prepare for the emerging 5G and IIoT, JD Logistics is partnering with cellular providers in China. Zhenhui Wang oversees JD Logistics and developed the e-commerce retailer’s technology and infrastructure.

Jingdong JD Logistics began offering its technology and infrastructure services to other businesses, shipment companies, and industries. The subsidiary makes it possible for consumers in China to receive their orders on the same day or the next day. Last month, logistics processed the delivery of over $29 billion in products throughout China.

In 2018, JD.com launched the “Institute of Urban Smart Logistics” to develop, create and design hubs, data, and cloud. The mission of the collaboration is to build an underground network delivery in urban areas of China. JD Logistics accomplished the development of robot deliveries and automated logistics center warehouses. The emergence of industrial internet of things will make Jingdong’s warehouses safer, faster, and efficient.

JD.com Breaks Records for June 18th Anniversary Sale


China’s leading retailer JD.com, also known as Jingdong, recently had a sale for the ages as they brought in a whopping $29.2 billion on June 18th, 2019 for their anniversary sale. JD.com used a combination of brand new products as well as many products consumers are already familiar with and have come to know and love in order to provide a sale every customer could not miss.

Throughout the year, Jingdong has focused in on brand new products to get consumers excited. With JD.com’s new exclusive channel, it is now easier than ever to be made aware of these products immediately and quickly get your hands on them.

A notable trend with this year’s sale was the major growth in lower tier cities. Transaction volume growth was twice as high with lower tier cities than it was with Jingdong overall. This continues the trajectory that has been seen from lower tier city consumers in recent memory of “trading up” in order to get brands more consistent and prevalent in higher tier cities.

Jingdong employed several unique tactics to help their sale reach its full potential. A powerful marketing tool known as Consumer to Manufacturer (C2M) has been of great use to JD.com as they look for ways to improve their marketing and manufacturing. Another big move that caught the eyes of many was the “Birthday Red Envelope” campaign. which provided consumers with incentives for sharing about the sale on their favorite social media platforms. It was clear from the very beginning, JD.com was going to pull out all the stops for their massive, record-breaking sale.

Perhaps the most impressive part of the June 18th sale this year was all the outside brands looking to partner with Jingdong. Prada, one of the world’s premiere designer brands, launched on JD.com during this year’s sale. Not to mention, two sister brands under the Prada name, “Miu Miu” and “Car Shoe” launched for the sale too. The company Farfetch also got its chance to shine as it launched a store on JD.com for the duration of the sale. JD.com not only has all the consumers watching their every move, however now has other brands looking to partner with them in order to propel their businesses as well. Time can only tell where JD.com can possibly go from here. Many will tell you that even this level of success was never thought of as being possible.

In an article with TG Daily entitled “JD . com’s Liu Qiangdong Commits to Inclusive Business”, e-commerce juggernaut JD.com has recently re-committed its operational practices to include total transparency regarding sustainable practices and environmental care.
