Cainiao, the official global parcel tracking platform of the Alibaba Group, and 4PX, one of China's leading logistics providers for cross-border e-commerce, have officially opened their new International Intelligent Logistics Park in Dongguan, Guangdong province.
The logistics park’s primary purpose is to serve as a countrywide consolidation centre for Alibaba’s Aliexpress and Taobao/Tmall international businesses.
The centre has been designed to handle an annual throughput of 100,000 tonnes of parcels, supporting more than 500 billion RMB (US$75.5b) in annual cross-border e-commerce sales and is in integral part of 4PX’s efforts to optimise supply chains and increase global fulfillment capability.
In a statement, 4PX said: "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.”
