E-Commerce Logistics in China, handling approximately 7 million orders
A total of 6.97 million orders received and shipped at China's giant EC event "W11”
China has its largest online shopping spree on November 11, commonly known as "W11 (bachelor's day)," and the total number of packages on that day in 2021 was 1.16 billion, making it a massive event.
W11 is said to have originated as an event for singles initiated by college students in the 1990s, and is an EC event comparable to the Christmas shopping season in terms of gift-giving.
The e-commerce site Alibaba initiated the implementation of the event, and since orders and shipments are dozens of times larger than normal, it is necessary to temporarily increase staffing to accommodate this.
The E-Commerce Logistics will now unfold in two phases, a pre-sale from November 1 to 3 and on the day of November 11, which will also cause an explosion in logistics.
Our group company in China (ITOCHU LOGISTICS [CHINA] CO., LTD.) is one of the first Japanese logistics companies to cultivate E-Commerce Logistics and W11 know-how and will support customers in the logistics aspect.
Since the volume of goods increases explosively from the normal period, we carefully prepare for this by securing temporary warehouses and workers in advance. In addition, we are introducing machinery to improve work efficiency.
During W11 in 2021, we received and shipped a total of 6.97 million orders (12.38 million PCS).
