JD Logistics, an independent business sub-group of JD.com, is creating a new platform called an Open Platform for Digital Supply Chain.
This new platform by a sub-group of JD. Com is a combination of all their strengths and experiences so they could make a supply chain service that would be good for a number of industries.

An auto company could benefit from using this new JD.com platform. With this new platform, an auto company could create a multi-warehouse layout that has accessories that are quite close to the offline auto services that will have this platform as well. By allowing accurate replenishment recommendations and integrating capabilities as intelligent inventory forecasting, the costs of fulfillment will be decreased. This is just the downstream part of the supply chain.
