Cainiao and 4PX open International Intelligent Logistics Park
Cainiao and 4PX have held a grand opening of their new International Intelligent Logistics Park in Dongguan, Guangdong province.
The logistics park’s primary purpose is to serve as a countrywide consolidation center for Alibaba’s Aliexpress and Taobao/Tmall international businesses. It is designed to handle an annual throughput of 100,000 tons of parcels, supporting more than 500 billion RMB in annual cross-border e-commerce sales, serving millions of overseas buyers, hundreds of thousands of domestic sellers, and is in integral part of 4PX’s efforts to optimize supply chains and increase global fulfillment capability.
In a statement issued on Tuesday (14 November), 4PX said that the logistics park was launched just in time to handle the surge in volume on 11.11, China’s singles day shopping festival.
4PX added: “The Cainiao and 4PX International Intelligent Logistics Park covers an area of 21,000 square meters, and is currently the largest and most intelligent cross-border e-commerce package processing center in China.
“Built by Cainiao and 4PX, it includes automatic weighing and sorting lines, telescopic conveyors lines, and consolidation lines, among other equipment. The core systems of the intelligent logistics facility were developed in-house by 4PX’s team of 300 IT, based on years of independent research and logistics development experience, not only providing efficient and stable operation of the entire park, but also enhancing delivery times and consumer experience.”
