Dada Group, China's leading local on-demand delivery and retail platform, and Segway-Ninebot, a global enterprise in the field of intelligent short-distance transportation and service robots, announced on Friday that they have established a strategic partnership to create a new business model of on-demand retail for the technology brand.
Segway-Ninebot is a technology company that leads the R&D and transformation of intelligent short-distance transportation and service robots. Its innovative products include two-wheeled self-balancing personal transporters, kickscooters, electric mopeds, robots, and all-terrain vehicles. The strategic cooperation between JDDJ, Dada's on-demand retail platform, and Segway-Ninebot not only brings diversity and high-quality products to the ecosystem of JDDJ, but also provides a more convenient one-hour delivery shopping experience for Segway-Ninebot users in the China market.
As China’s leading local on-demand retail platform, JDDJ will cooperate deeply with Ninebot in terms of product management, digital marketing, targeted user operations, and order fulfillment optimization. Moreover, Segway-Ninebot's offline stores which have been integrated into JDDJ will also launch on JD.com. The three companies will work together to build an omni-channel ecosystem for technology products. Since September 2020, more than 600 of Segway-Ninebot's offline stores have launched on JDDJ across China, with monthly sales steadily increasing.
"In the era of micro e-commerce, one-hour delivery is not merely a demand, but a habit. On-demand retail offers one of the biggest opportunities and digital transformation creates new growth engines for offline stores," said Guangsen Mou, general manager of the Fashion and Digital Electronics Business Department at JDDJ at the signing ceremony.
"The home delivery business model solves the problems of product experience and delivery timeliness for users. This promising exploration is also an excellent way to empower offline stores with online traffic," said Hongwei Li, general manager of China Business at Segway-Ninebot.
