Chinese e-commerce platform JD has partnered with Dada Group to provide one-hour delivery services of daily necessities to JD customers.
The move will see the launch of around 100,000 JDDJ-branded online stores on the JD platform, including nearly 100 chain supermarket and store brands such as Walmart. It is an expansion of JD’s Omnichannel Fulfillment supply chain innovation program launched last year to integrate multiple offline channels, enabling them to deliver orders originating from JD directly and improving the efficiency of the supply chain – with delivery times shortened to an average of two hours.
The new partnership allows JD buyers to purchase and receive more than 3 million products from participating stores within an hour, with some products available for delivery within 15 minutes.
The Omnichannel Fulfillment program has attracted multiple leading brand partners since launching, including Coca-Cola, Nongfu Spring, P&G, C’est bon and Budweiser amongst others, covering offline stores in 242 cities across China.
