We bring you another case study highlighting how the Madrid System can support companies manage their portfolio of international registrations. Today, we review the case of Chinese e-commerce company JD.com. Throughout the years, JD.com has grown and diversified its business range with the help of the Madrid System.
With over twenty years of experience, JD.com has become a top technology and services enterprise with supply chain at its core.

Globally, JD.com is transitioning its business model from “the world to China” to “China to the world”. In short, it aims to bring its knowledge in retail infrastructure – from logistics to supply chain, technology and other capabilities – to the world. For this, JD.com has experimented a fast, online and global growth during the past several years.
