Baozun Expands Logistics Network With Opening of Warehouse in Beijing
Operations at Baozun Inc.’s seventh logistics warehouse in Beijing began this month.
The Beijing warehouse is the company’s first warehouse in northern China and the third opened this year. With the addition of the Beijing warehouse, Baozun now operates over one-million square feet of warehousing space.
Baizun is an ecommerce solutions provider in China with integrated capabilities that include IT solutions, store operations, digital marketing, customer services, warehousing, and fulfillment.
Baozun says its Beijing warehouse will fit into the company’s overall ecommerce 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. The company also operates warehouses in Guangzhou, Suzhou, and Hong Kong.
“The opening of our seventh warehouse in Beijing will strengthen our logistical presence in northern China and allow us to provide a better end-to-end ecommerce solution to our brand partners,” said Vincent Qiu, chief executive officer of Baozun. “Last year, Baozun delivered over one-million orders during [China’s November 11 Singles’ Day] 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. We will continue to expand our logistical infrastructure by establishing new warehouses in strategic locations across China to further improve our fulfillment efficiency and support long-term growth.”
