Datasea reinforced the 5G messaging offerings in the express industry as the cooperation with National Engineering Laboratory for Logistics Information Technology and ZTO Express being executed smoothly
Last month, Datasea announced the cooperation with National Engineering Laboratory for Logistics Information Technology led by YTO Express (“National Engineering Laboratory”) to jointly promote the formulation of 5G Messaging Standards in the express industry. According to the agreement, the Company would empower the express industry with its 5G Message-marketing Cloud Platform (5G MMCP), work with National Engineering Laboratory to develop standards in exchange and sharing of logistics information and promote the adoption of 5G messaging services across the express industry, all geared towards the improvement of operational efficiency while cutting the costs.
As the only national engineering laboratory in the express industry, The National Engineering Laboratory is approved by the National Development and Reform Commission of China and led by YTO Express (Stock ticker: 600233.SH), one of the largest express companies in China. According to the agreement, Datasea will empower the express industry with its 5G Message-marketing Cloud Platform (5G MMCP), work with National Engineering Laboratory to develop standards in exchange and sharing of logistics information and promote the adoption of 5G messaging services.
YTO Express is a leading express company in China and an A-share listed company (600233.SH). As of December 2020, YTO Express had more than 4,600 branches, more than 70,000 service outlets and terminal stores, 133 various transshipment centers, and more than 450,000 employees. The express service network covered 31 provinces and autonomous regions across the country. And municipalities directly under the central government, cities above the county level have basically achieved full coverage.
The cooperation has received strong endorsement and support from both organizations in terms of technology development, research capabilities and application scope. With that in place, the final formulation of 5G Messaging Standards is expected to have the industry authority and application promotion capabilities in the express industry.
On the other hand, Datasea and ZTO Express cooperation goes smoothly in terms of developing 5G Messaging applications.
Last month, Datasea announced the engagement by ZTO Express to develop 5G Messaging applications. ZTO Express is one of the fastest growing and leading companies in China’s express industry. As a listed company on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE：ZTO), it has developed rapidly for more than ten years empowered by its innovation capabilities. As of 2020, ZTO Express had 30,000 service outlets, 90 distribution centers, and 485 network partners. At the same time, it is also the first company in the industry with a vision to apply 5G messaging into its operation. While making demonstrations for the entire industry, it also helps boost confidence for more express companies to adopt the
5G messaging applications. At present, the cooperation between the two parties has been carried out in an orderly manner. ZTO Express authorized Datasea to develop 5G messaging applications to improve the operational efficiency in scenarios such as shipping, inquiry, delivery, and pickup while exploring the opportunities in content carrying and volume monetization in the express industry, and establish a new portal for online services. Two companies will also work together and explore the potential expansion of related businesses, such as utilizing e-commerce and live broadcasting to aggregate traffic and create new business value to users. At the same time, the AI voice assistant Chatbot created for ZTO reduces labor service costs and text messaging costs, while improving service efficiency and user satisfaction, increasing revenue, and achieving accurate and efficient customer acquisition in the express industry.
Datasea believes that the cooperation with National Engineering Laboratory and ZTO will be great demonstrations of the company’s ability to serve the clients with most extensive application scenarios while building a 5G messaging application model for the express industry. In the future, Datasea will not only focus on the leading express companies, but also companies across China's trillion-level logistics market.
With the development of artificial intelligence, big data and other Internet technologies and the in-depth integration of the market, Datasea aims to help improve the operational efficiency and cost management with the 5G messaging technology. The cooperation unlocks enhancements in operation and communication efficiency. In the future, Datasea will continue to assist companies to consolidate their messaging services, build ongoing customer interests, and innovate.
