The new launch is Cainiao, from which Alibaba is an investor, is doubling down on its confidence that blockchain has significant potential for adoption of cross-border e-commerce.

Thanks to this partnership, Chinese consumers from different cities covered by Cainiao, including Shanghai, Guangzhou and Shenzhen, will be able to track logistic information based on blockchain for approximately 30,000 products from 50 countries via a mobile e-commerce application.
