Gfresh has transformed the way seafood is bought and sold.
Gfresh Partners with JD.com to Smash Single Day Sales Record of Live Lobsters
JD recently launched an international sales promotion, achieving single day record-breaking sales of live lobsters. Many of these lobsters were purchased in partnership with Gfresh, the world's largest online seafood marketplace.
The promotion was also in partnership with the Embassy of Canada to China. Due to the exceptional demand, Canadian lobster prices were affected, as well as surprising local Canadian lobster sellers. Some local Canadian markets were completely out of stock due to the surging demand.
Gfresh can guarantee the fresh delivery of goods seven hours after the aircraft has landed.
The Gfresh platform was utilized in order to ensure the live lobster arrived quickly and in good health.
Customs pre-clearance enabled the product to arrive to the buyers quickly, along with secure escrow payment for a risk-free and fast transfer of funds between buyers and sellers.
Gfresh has professional quality control teams on the ground, as well as a fleet of refrigerated trucks.
The large lobsters were sent directly to JD in Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou, with a guarantee the lobsters arrived within 48 hours of the order date.
Upon arrival, the live lobsters are carefully inspected and video recorded, to make sure the quality of the arrived product satisfies both the buyer and seller.
With the rise of the Chinese middle class and the development of efficient ecommerce platforms, Canadians can expect to see more demand for their goods, such as live lobster and other luxury seafood products.
