JD launched a new air cargo route from Wuxi to Tianjin to Shenzhen, using freight Boeing 737-300F, which is the third all-cargo aircraft rented by JD Logistics for its air transportation business. The first flight took off on October 25th at 12:00 am. The addition of the new route further accelerates JD’s delivery services to customers in China’s three key economic areas: the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei Area, the Yangtze River Delta and the Great Bay Area of Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macau.

Having 130 cubic meters of space, the cargo aircraft is provided by Zhongyuan Longhao Airlines. Customers in the East China and North China regions will be able to receive their parcels in under 24 hours.

‘Since the beginning of this year, we have been continuously launching air cargo routes,’ said Wanyi Zhao, head of express delivery products for JD Logistics’ East
