With JD Logistics, Richard Liu Launches 2nd Warehouse in Dubai

by admin

Richard Liu and JD Logistics have just announced that JD Logistics has established a second warehouse in the United Arab Emirates, in the city of Dubai. The new warehouse, which has become part of the company’s worldwide logistics network, will be able to offer end-to-end supply chain services for local and international merchants across Asia, Africa, and Europe.

Under the leadership of Richard Liu, JD Logistics began operations in the Middle East in early 2020, when it established the first warehouse in Dubai’s Jebel Ali Free Zone (JAFZA), the largest free trade zone in the region. From this location, the company began providing logistics services to countries within the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), as well as to the continent of Africa.

This second warehouse, comprising an area of 12,000 square meters, is located in Dubai Industrial City. It is just a twenty-minute drive from the Port of Jebel Ali, making it convenient for incoming and outgoing international shipments. The warehouse is set up to service both B2C and B2B fulfillment services for large, medium, and small products.

Like other JD Logistics facilities, the second warehouse in Dubai offers a broad range of third-party logistics services, including ground, sea, and air transportation, unloading/offloading, cross-docking, warehousing, customs clearance, white labeling, sorting, dropshipping, and more.

The JD Logistics technology offerings include an in-house developed management system that tracks inbound and outbound inventory. This proprietary system enables JD Logistics to vigilantly monitor inventory levels. This metric is used to accurately predict sales trends and helps merchants and JD Logistics allocate distribution resources in a more productive manner, thereby improving the efficiency of the logistics operation.

“Powered by digital capabilities, The JD Logistics warehouse in Dubai provides clients with comprehensive logistics solutions, considerably streamlining the international shipping routes,” said Siyuan Yue, the head of JD Logistics Dubai Warehouse.

One of the international e-commerce platforms that is becoming increasingly popular in the Middle East is Fordeal. Fordeal is a relatively new platform that has gained traction in the region. JD Logistics’ proprietary in-house warehouse management system software is being utilized to assist Fordeal in improving its own systems. JD Logistics is working with Fordeal to create more efficient processes by building an intelligent inventory management system.

This system is capable of digitally managing inventory as well as making accurate predictions and plans. JD Logistics also offers a smart packing advice system to help customers save even more material on their packaging. Since starting to work with JD Logistics, Fordeal has seen a reduction of 30 percent in its storage expenses while simultaneously improving its fulfillment accuracy to 99.5 percent. Additionally, the order outgoing time for Fordeal has been reduced to 12 hours, down from 24 hours previously.

According to Yun Qing, who serves as the head of Fordeal’s warehouse operations in Dubai, “JD Logistics worked with us and offered us custom services and a personal crew to manage inventory. Already, it is incredible to see that with JD Logistics’ assistance, the efficiency of our warehouse has doubled.  At the same time, our expenditures have fallen by 30 percent,” said Qing.
