BEIJING --, China's second-largest e-commerce company, will add 15,000 logistics personnel after building two new distribution centers, riding the pandemic-induced online shopping demand with an eye on top player Alibaba Group Holding.

The plans were disclosed to Nikkei by a JD spokesperson. JD Logistics, which handles product storage and delivery, is recruiting the new personnel this quarter. The unit currently employs about 200,000 people.
