Jingdong stops using Shentong, saying Ali refuses to access JD Logistics

On August 18, the suspension of Shentong express on Jingdong open platform caused widespread concern. In response, the Jingdong open platform said that the cooperation between Jingdong open platform and Shentong was suspended because the contract between the two parties had expired and no agreement was reached on the renewal of the contract. < p > < p > Jingdong said that in June 2019, after the contract between Shentong and Jingdong’s open platform expired, the two sides were also in constant communication on the renewal of the contract. In the same period, Alibaba group became the actual major shareholder of Shentong through strategic investment. Therefore, Jingdong Logistics also proposed the cooperation demand of entering Alibaba’s e-commerce platform equally, but it has not been responded to so far. Based on the principle of fair, equal and win-win cooperation, JD and Shentong can not reach an agreement on the renewal of the contract, so they can only suspend the cooperation. However, the door of our cooperation has always been open, and we look forward to looking forward to the future with Shentong and looking for new cooperation opportunities. < p > < p > according to public data, in March 2019, Alibaba invested 4.66 billion yuan in Shentong express, and obtained 14.65% equity of the other party by investing in its parent company.
