|DATUK SERI ALEXANDER NANTA LINGGI ANNOUNCES NEW OPPORTUNITIES FOR LOCAL BRANDS TO TAP ON CHINA'S RM159.84 BIL EXPORT DEMAND FOR MALAYSIAN PRODUCTS THRU JD FRESH GO
KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 14 (Bernama) -- JDMas Commerce Sdn Bhd (JDMas) launched its Malaysia Flagship Store on JD Fresh Go, part of JD.com (China’s largest online and offline retailer), in the presence of YB Datuk Seri Alexander Nanta Linggi, the Minister of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs. The store will cater to China’s increasing demand for Malaysian durians and products that will be exported through cold-chain fulfillment.
The opening of the flagship store on JD Fresh Go is an extension of JDMas’ existing Malaysia Pavilion on JD Worldwide, a cross-border B2C import platform in China, where Malaysian durians have become the No.1 best-selling food item on JD’s 618 and 11-11 single-day shopping festival. To meet China’s high demand, the all-new JD Fresh Go store will feature premium variety durians such as Malaysian Musang King, Sultan durians, etc. which is supported by JD’s wide network of 20 cold-chain warehouses located across China.
JD has taken the necessary steps to preserve the quality of the products during export by using the highest international standards of harvesting and processing the durians before being frozen and sent on freight to China. They will then be made available on the JD Fresh Go e-commerce platform and fulfilled using JD Logistics’ state-of-the-art warehouse and last-mile delivery system.
YB Datuk Seri Alexander Nanta Linggi, the Minister of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs, said, “Today, China has moved to become Malaysia’s largest trading partner, accounting for 18.6% of total trade in 2020. Our local durian productions have so much potential that we have yet to tap into. The key to success seems to be the distribution coverage and fulfillment for the China market. This can only be achieved through partnerships with giant organizations such as JD.com. I applaud our local enterprises and brands who band together under one family, to list, promote and sell under the Malaysia Flagship Store on JD Fresh Go. It is one of the ways for us to push local products to the international market. Bersatu kita teguh!”
Aside from durians and other fresh fruits, the Malaysia Flagship Store will also display downstream products such as mochi, mooncakes, gelato & ice cream, as well as frozen food such as roti canai, samosas, and cakes.
“Malaysian brands and merchants are able to tap into JD Logistic’s wide fulfillment network of more than 1,500 warehouses including 20 cold-chain warehouses and last-mile delivery covering 99% of China. During the pandemic, JD has also enabled drone and unmanned warehousing and delivery to fulfill orders. The availability of data and AI of its users in China has enabled promotion to be more effective and targeted, as well as drive cost of fulfillment down,” said Datuk Bruce Lim, Managing Director of JDMas.
