Supply Chain Graphic of the Week: Happy Times for Alibaba


Employees Watch Electronic Ticker Spinning Fast as Single's Day Sales Soar Again

 

Nov. 14, 2019

 

As we reported in this week's Supply Chain by the Numbers, Alibaba had a blow out "Single's Day," the odd Chinese on-line shopping event started some years back as a protest movement against Valentine's Day.

 

Alibaba raked in $38 billion in so-called Gross Merchandise Value on the day, a rough measure of sales through Alibaba's platform.

 

The photo below shows Alibaba employees fired up watching the company's electronic ticker showing sales volumes (in yuan) soaring.

 


 

We say: Looks like fun, even if we do think Single's Day is a little odd.
