JD Logistics is placing China Logistics in a great place internationally, considering it is the first-ever company in the sector currently leveraging European Pallet Association to sell their shipping pallets. This partnership involving EPAL and JD logistics allows for the pallets to be distributed all over China through the company’s cloud box. JD logistics developed the JD cloud box as a transaction platform for logistics. It is also meant to provide leasing and repair services for real-time information, not forgetting all transactions linked to EPAL pallets throughout China. The expected result is that this move will assist with both manufacturing and circulation of the pallets.EPAL, one of the pallet industry leaders, is a renowned pooling system for logistic carriers. It was established back in 1991 and has been in charge of the worldwide EPAL quality load carriers. This body issues licenses that allow carriers to access repairs and other related quality services regardless of their location in the world. There are over 1500 licenses issued for these services across more than 300 countries of the world.
With the new partnership, EPAL makes sure that JD logistics helps make the Chinese logistics industry closer to the global space. Currently, many transporters will get the much-needed high-quality pallets anywhere in China, enhancing the China logistics industry significantly. This ensures a large number of China companies can access quality pallets, thus boosting the overall performance of china logistics in general. With the new partnership between JD and EPAL, standards are also set relatively high, ensuring that people enjoy better services.
JD is the perfect partner to help grow the domestic pallet market in China, explaining why it was EPAL’s best choice when entering China. People in the industry need to have continuous access to high-quality pallets to survive the logistics ecosystem. Both partners believe that they are best suited to supply China’s logistic needs when they come together. With EPAL’s record of quality and JD’s excellent reputation worldwide, Chinese people can access the best services without worrying about the quality. It is not convenient for clients across China to access the best pallets without worrying about quality. With the new partnership, China’s logistic industry should expect a lot of changes in the industry.
