JD Logistics Airlines has launched two new all-cargo routes to grow its supply chain network in China.

One of the routes is from Beijing to Wuhu, Anhui province to Nantong, Jiangsu province; and the other is between Shenzhen, Guangdong province and Wuxi, Jiangsu province.

The inaugural Beijing-Wuhu-Nantong flight was taken by a Boeing B737-800F, landing in Wuhu Xuanzhou Airport on the morning of December 28.

The route is expected to improve the logistics transportation efficiency in east and north China, enabling the collaboration of JD Logistics’ Asia No.1 logistics parks in Hefei and Wuhu, and satellite warehouses in their neighbouring areas.

The inaugural flight of the Shenzhen-Wuxi route took off from Shenzhen Bao’an International Airport in the early morning of December 30.

JD will operate the route six times a week with daily transportation capacity of up to 15 tons.

The new routes complement the company’s existing route between Shenzhen, Guangdong province and Hangzhou, Zhejiang province.

Since 2017, JD Logistics has been developing its air cargo business with airline companies. Currently, JD Logistics has access to over 1000 air transportation routes covering more than 100 airports.

JD received an air carrier certificate from the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) in September.
