Linde and Suning Logistics reached a strategic cooperation
On May 28th, Suning logistics and Linde (China) reached a strategic cooperation agreement. The two sides will give full play to their respective advantages and carry out all directional and deep cooperation in various fields such as automation equipment, intelligent storage, intelligent supply chain and so on, so as to create a new intelligent logistics ecosystem in an all-round way.
As early as 2005, Zhang Jindong, chairman of Suning Holding Group, put forward the long-term plan of establishing a new type of logistics. Suning and Linde cooperated to promote the traditional warehousing manual operation to mechanized and automated operation, which is an “old friend” of Suning Logistics on the road of continuously building intelligent logistics. In 2016, Suning Logistics S Laboratory was established, Linde became an important partner of Suning Logistics Exploration Intelligent Equipment.
At the scene, the two sides discussed the development and application of intelligence, digitalization and new energy. Linde (China) Vice President Xie Dean said that in recent years, Linde has been striving for breakthroughs in the three dimensions of intelligence, digitalization and new energy. In the future, more large data platforms, intelligent robots and unmanned warehouses will enter the logistics industry chain. Facing the increasing market demand, enterprises that can seize the first opportunity of intelligent logistics can lead the industry better. More importantly, smart logistics will not only change the entire logistics ecosystem, but also adapt to the whole industry.
At present, there are more than 1500 Linde material handling equipment, which is busy and orderly running in various logistics bases in Suning, and undertakes different handling and production tasks. Suning and Linde have cooperated for more than ten years and witnessed the rapid development of Linde (China). More importantly, Suning Logistics advocates synergy with partners, industry and society to build an open and integrated smart logistics ecosystem, which coincides with Linde’s development philosophy. It is hoped that the two sides will achieve rapid development in the fields of warehousing and logistics and intelligent logistics.
