JD.com is an online website that sells a wide variety of products for customers and is one of the giant online retailers of China. JD.com was created by entrepreneur and businessman Jingdong. The company is very good when it comes to delivery of products and now will be committing itself to building an underground network to deliver products like noted entrepreneur Elon Musk plans to do as well. The plans were announced at this year’s Global Smart Chain Summit, which was in Beijing. They will be creating a grand scheme of tunnels and a system fitted with logistics for accurate data and support. They will be getting help from many individuals from Nankai University and other Universities throughout Beijing and Shanghai.
The company will have to figure out whether they can use logistics in the underground tunnels for delivery. The interesting delivery system could prove to be very good as it will provide great delivery for people in urban settings. Overpopulation and the creation of new buildings and gases have created environmental pollution for its population in China. Factories and other facilities have also caused this shift, along with earthquakes and other environmental disasters. If JD.com could create these underground tunnels for delivery, it would benefit in reducing environmental pollution and create logistics.
China believes that they can make sure of all the space available to them and that the underground tunnels would also reduce traffic and contribute to urban space. This is not the only project that JD is working on, as they are operating some stores, using robots for delivery, and are using a warehouse for their products. JD.com offers individuals an unrivaled online experience and are using the power of technology in today’s age. According to their website’s homepage, they are a Fortune Global 500 company and have only increased their revenue throughout the years under Jingdong. JD.com has proven to be reliable with their convenient ordering system and fast delivery service to customers.
