The best marketing lies in individualized
services. The enormous breakthrough of
internet technology has entirely changed
traditional shopping methods and there is an
unprecedented revolution in the marketing
environment. The retail industry has to
comply with these trends in mobility, socialization and localization - it's a new way of intelligent retail through internet and big data.
Suning has built dynamic networks
everywhere to satisfy consumers' needs
through our intelligent retail net system.
Our online platform, Suning.com, has reached
280 million users, while establishing almost
3,700 direct stores. We expect to reach 5,000
by the end of 2017 and to spread in both big
cities and rural towns and village markets
as well. In regard to operating types, it has
preceded layouts of Suning Plaza, Suning
Cinema, Suning Media & Entertainment VR
experience hall, sports flagship stores and
Suning Finance Wealth Management Center
to overall satisfy users' needs. Suning's
antennas have even stretched to users' sides,
at their residence quarters by fulfilling O2O
distributions within the last kilometer, while
offering comprehensive coverage through
Suning direct stores and Suning mobile
phone monopolized stores.
Beyond that, we have built a massive
logistics service network. Suning has
offered logistics services to more than
1,200 companies so far and by the end
of June 2016, a colossal logistics service
system composed of 12 automatic picking
centers, eight national logistics centers,
47 regional logistics centers, 465 city
distribution centers and 19,359 terminal
express delivery lattice points (with selfpicking function ) were established.
