Alibaba-owned Taobao Tmall Group has set up a logistics unit to coordinate its work with external delivery companies, according to a Monday report by LatePost. The step aims to establish an effective and low-cost supply chain system for e-commerce platforms Taobao and Tmall as they see an influx of cost-sensitive smaller merchants. LatePost cited a source saying the unit is now “hiring in large numbers,” as part of the company’s overall plan to add 15,000 new employees this year. [LatePost, in Chinese]
