JD.com starts dedicated air cargo operation to increase delivery reliability


Chinese e-commerce giant JD.com has started an air freighter operation as it expands its logistics services to build greater reliability, according to Shipping Gazette.
The new service will fly six round trips weekly between Tianjin and Guangzhou using a dedicated Boeing 737 aircraft in JD Logistics livery.
Delivery will be faster than when JD relied on shared aircraft and ground transportation. "With more, dedicated capacity, JD will be able to continue delivering orders the same- or the next-day, nationwide," the company said.
JD and Tianjin Air Cargo will be looking closely at how to expand the new service, with further routes planned between northern and southern China.
"The addition of freight by dedicated cargo aircraft brings the strength of JD's nationwide logistics network to even greater heights," said JD Logistics express chief Hui Wang.
"We look forward to expanding our relationship with Tianjin Air Cargo in the coming months and we are sure that the resulting expedited delivery speeds will be welcomed by individual consumers as well as the businesses we work with as part of our retail as a service strategy."
Said Tianjin Air Cargo chairman and president Yi Zhang: "The combination of Tianjin Cargo's breadth of experience in freight and JD's expertise in supply chain makes this partnership a force to be reckoned with."
Tianjin Air Cargo is a subsidiary of the HNA Group and was launched earlier this year with an initial fleet of three B737 freighters.
The airline launched flying routes between Tianjin and Zhengzhou, Xian, Chongqing, Shenzhen, Urumqi, Shanghai-Pudong and Guangzhou.
