Alibaba launches China’s biggest robotic warehouse

E-commerce giant Alibaba is preparing for the rush of the upcoming Singles Day, which falls on November 11, by opening what is said to be the country’s biggest robotic warehouse located in Wuxi, in the eastern Chinese province of Jiangsu.

Cainiao Network, Alibaba’s logistics affiliate, opened the warehouse on October 25 to help cope with increasing delivery demand, the company said in a statement, adding that it handled 812 million orders during last year’s shopping festival.

The new warehouse is positioned as an Internet of Things-powered, “robotic smart warehouse” with close to 700 automated vehicles, aided and steered by the IoT component to avoid collisions and “intelligently distribute parcels.”
