SHANGHAI, China, Sept. 08, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Baozun Inc. (Nasdaq:BZUN) ("Baozun" or the "Company"), the leading brand e-commerce solutions provider in China, today announced that Baotong E-logistics ("Baotong"), its wholly-owned warehousing and logistics solutions subsidiary, has begun operations at its first premium warehouse, the Baotong Cube. Baotong recently became a certified partner of Alibaba Group Holding Limited's ("Alibaba") (NYSE:BABA) logistics arm Cainiao Network Technology Co., Ltd. ("Cainiao"), which will allow it to provide best-in-class services to a wider variety of merchants through Cainiao’s platform.
The Baotong Cube is a highly automated premium warehouse that significantly improves operational efficiency, provides brand partners with a more customizable solution and supports Baozun’s long-term growth by strengthening and expanding the scale of its logistical capabilities. Nike and Converse will be the first brand partners to have their merchandise handled by the Baotong Cube.
The launch of the Baotong Cube will allow Baozun to meet increasing demand for its warehousing and fulfillment services and is part of the Company’s preparations for the enormous surge in orders that takes place during the 11.11 shopping festival. Leveraging its sophisticated IT systems and highly automated infrastructure, the Baotong Cube will be able to process 15,000 orders per hour.
“The Baotong Cube marks the beginning of a new generation of intelligent warehousing and fulfillment services that will support brand e-commerce and shape the industry going forward,” commented Mr. Vincent Qiu, Chief Executive Officer of Baozun. “This new, highly automated warehouse significantly improves efficiency and provides better overall services.”
“Having analyzed years of 11.11 shopping festival data, we are confident that the intelligent logistical systems we have built into the Baotong Cube will ensure the smooth fulfillment of orders during the surge. Our sophisticated IT systems work closely with our brand partners to manage their inventories in a cost-efficient way and secure processing capacity on the most important day in China’s e-commerce market. We will continue to invest in innovating our warehousing and fulfilment infrastructure which I am confident will help us in developing stronger relationships with our current brand partners and new ones with those who are in need of our deep experience in B2C warehousing and fulfillment services.”
