Baozun opens new Beijing warehouse
E-commerce solutions provider Baozun has announced that its new Beijing warehouse will enable it to “provide next day delivery service to core northern cities”. The Beijing facility, which became operational this month, is Baozun’s first warehouse in northern China and extends its national network to seven.
In a statement issued on Friday (25 September) Baozun said: “With the addition of the Beijing warehouse, the Company now operates warehouses with an aggregate gross floor area of close to 100,000 m2. In addition to the warehouses in Guangzhou, Suzhou and Hong Kong, the Beijing warehouse will seamlessly fit into the Company’s overall e-commerce logistics network in China and strengthen its presence in northern China, allowing it to reduce transportation costs and delivery times to provide next day delivery service to core northern cities.”
Vincent Qiu, Chief Executive Officer of Baozun, commented: “The opening of our seventh warehouse in Beijing will allow us to provide a better end-to-end ecommerce solution to our brand partners.
“With November 11 rapidly approaching, warehouse overload is a major concern for each of our brand partners. Last year, Baozun delivered over 1 million orders during the shopping festival. With that number expected to surge this year, it is extremely important for us to prepare for this by expanding our regional logistical infrastructure to increase logistical efficiency, lower shipping costs and provide better services. I am confident that we will be able to meet the surge and provide better fulfillment services with the addition of the Beijing warehouse this year.”
Qiu added that Baozun planned to continue expanding its infrastructure by setting up new warehouses in “strategic locations” across China.
