In partnership with EPAL, JD Logistics is to distribute the pallets throughout China using JD Cloud Box, the company’s logistics transaction platform.
EPAL products are to be the standard logistics carriers throughout JD Logistics supply chain. They are to also be integrated into cross-border logistics operations. Under the deal, JD Cloud Box is also responsible for repair and leading services for the pallets, and finally provide an online platform for real-time information and transactions regarding EPAL pallets in China.

We are making it much more convenient for companies across China to utilize EPAL’s pallets in their operations, and raising the standard for China’s logistics industry at large.”
