In celebration of its eighth anniversary, JD Logistics CEO Zhenhui Wang addressed his employees with a letter that outlined his ambitious plans for his growing logistics company. Wang intends to hasten JD Logistics’s growth and see it become a leading logistics company worldwide while maintaining the high standards and core values that saw the company through its successful first years.
Wang champions togetherness, consistency, and long-term thinking as the tenets of his business philosophy and demonstrates how these qualities will drive the company forward to success.
Wang witnessed the value of working together when the logistics side of the company outgrew its retail arm, JD Retail. Over the course of three years, the company took on hundreds of thousands of individual clients and grew into a massive logistical machine. Now poised to dominate the market, Wang plans to work closely with individual merchants to streamline China’s supply chain while maintaining the customer-friendly values that his clients have come to expect.
Wang believes that consistent top-tier service is a hallmark of his company’s brand. He sees providing trustworthy service with love as his cultural duty and remains committed to his role. He’s worked to normalize same-day shipping within China, something that he believes benefits the economy on the whole. Wang also understands the value of being a dependable purveyor of public services, and he’s proud to announce his commitment to Chinese medical teams and his company’s role in providing pandemic relief materials to Chinese citizens in need.
With these core beliefs underscored, Wang looks for ways to position the company as a leading global supplier in the coming years. He’s committed to technology first and foremost, after opening the first autonomous warehouse in the world and establishing a cutting-edge 5G logistics park. His focus on innovative technology has allowed his company to grow and serve areas outside of China’s first-class cities and has revolutionized the way Chinese citizens interact with shipping services. With these successes, Wang believes his ongoing commitment to research and development ensures the company will be at the forefront of any technological breakthrough relating to logistics.
With globalization on his mind, Wang plans to overhaul his company’s image, structure, and mission. Moving forward, he hopes to appear open and warm to the public and explains that providing service with love and warmth is as important as expedient shipping and technological advancement. In keeping this balance, he’s altered the company’s organizational structure to achieve the ultimate end: becoming a global supply chain leader.
In eight years, JD Logistics grew into a dominating logistics company in China. They’ve penetrated under-served markets and maintain a standard of organizational excellence from top to bottom. By placing a premium on technological advancement, the company is ready to move into global markets, believing their compassionate service will set them apart from other logistics companies. CEO Zhenhui Wang is determined to take his company global and enjoy at least another eight years of success.
