JD Logistics is now the world’s first e-commerce platform authorised to leverage the European Pallet Association e.V. (EPAL)’s shipping pallets. The strategic partnership between JD Logistics and EPAL will enable EPAL pallets to be distributed to partners throughout China via JD Cloud Box.
Jie Ji, head of JD Cloud Box at JD Logistics said, “Our new partnership with EPAL brings us one step closer to making China’s logistics industry the global ‘smart’ leader. Reliable access to high-quality pallets on an as-needed basis is crucial to ensuring a highly efficient supply chain ecosystem. We are making it much more convenient for companies across China to utilize EPAL’s pallets in their operations and raising the standard for China’s logistics industry at large.”
“JD is the perfect partner for EPAL’s entry into China’s domestic pallet market. JD’s longstanding commitment to quality and self-built nationwide logistics network has solidified its trusted reputation among consumers and businesses alike,” said Robert Holliger, president of EPAL, “Combining our high-quality standardized pallets and JD Logistics’ rich local expertise, the JD Cloud Box platform can transform the future of logistics in China.”
