Cainiao partnering with Daraz to automate distribution centres in Pakistan

Alibaba’s logistics arm Cainiao Network is partnering with the South Asian e-commerce platform Daraz to automate two distribution centres in Pakistan.

The distribution centres will be equipped smart technologies, such as an automatic assembly line and smart distribution set-up. The automation project will utilise Cainiao’s proprietary solutions, including e-PLC, control algorithm, WCS, to ensure operational quality and stability.

In a statement sent to Post&Parcel today (30 August), Cainiao said that the project marks a “new milestone” for the company as its “first deeply integrated network of distribution centres in South Asia”. Cainiao added that it has already “built hundreds of automated distribution centres of varying scales in the Chinese mainland, and 10 smart distribution hubs across Europe, Asia, and America”.

Dr. Ding Hongwei, General Manager, Cainiao Technology, commented: “As Daraz’s official logistics partner, we are committed to growing its logistics capabilities in the region. By extending our technology to the logistics ecosystem in South Asia and beyond, we hope to also raise awareness of our smart logistics offerings and technology applications to help the industry and our overseas partners close the gap in digitalisation, become more competitive, and meet the growing demand for eCommerce.”

Bjarke Mikkelsen, Daraz Group Chief Executive Officer and Founder, added: “Strengthening our logistics infrastructure and technology is critical in scaling our operations in Pakistan. By tapping on smart technology, Daraz is able to enhance our customers’ experience by providing more efficient logistics distribution. We look forward to continuing our partnership with Cainiao to grow our logistics capabilities.”
