JD Worldwide, JD.com's import and export shopping platform, has launched its first self-managed direct fashion sourcing warehouse in Paris, France. As detailed in a statement, this initiative is a key component of the company's cross-border e-commerce strategy, which aims to facilitate the entry of more European brands into the Chinese market by providing efficient sourcing solutions.
Located on the outskirts of Paris, in Val-d'Oise, the new facility houses fashion products from France, Germany, the United Kingdom, Italy, and Spain, among other European countries. The warehouse features various product categories, including clothing, beauty products, jewelry, and luxury goods. The facility currently includes a selection of more than 100 brands.
In the words of Louis Zhang, General Manager, Luxury & Fashion, JD Worldwide: "Our strategy focuses on extending our supply chain to the same locations where brands are based. This approach not only significantly reduces fulfillment costs for local retailers, but also provides faster delivery, competitive pricing, and reliable service for our customers."
"This innovative approach is designed to open up new possibilities for more SMEs and niche brands from Europe, providing them with an entry point into China's vibrant and dynamic fashion market," the executive stresses.
Alongside the opening of the new warehouse, JD Worldwide has also launched an online store connected directly to the Paris warehouse. Leveraging efficient local inventory management, the platform ensures access to the latest fashion news and promotions, and that orders placed on the JD app in China are shipped quickly.
Similarly, consumers have the added assurance of the JD Smart Check service, which verifies the authenticity and traceability of their imported purchases.
