In addition, the two companies will cooperate to develop technologies for unmanned warehouses, autonomous driving, artificial intelligence and big data technologies, according to a company announcement.
"We have seen a dramatic increase of consumer demand in China for Japanese products across every retail category because Chinese shoppers admire their outstanding reputation and quality," said Richard Liu, JD.com’s chairman and CEO. "This strengthened partnership with Yamato Group will give JD’s consumers even greater access to the highest quality Japanese and global brands."
