Jingdong is synonymous with better services in the e-commerce world. As a visionary online retailer, the company was the first to deliver goods to customers through drones. This year, the company is preparing for another phrase of ensuring efficiency is achieved in the delivery of goods. Through the Jd.com communication team, the next phrase of timely goods delivery is through an underground delivery system. This project will have an impact on the company’s overall plan and more importantly the future of online retail in China and other Asian countries.What does an underground delivery system mean? Unlike the typical way to deliver purchased goods, the underground system will give both Jingdong and clients unmatched speed in delivery. Better delivery speed is a significant issue, especially in urban centers.
In most Chinese cities and Southeast Asian countries, traffic jams are frequent. Delivery vans spend hours on traffic before making parcel delivery service. This structural problem has been a significant problem in realizing a 24-hour delivery. However, with these structures in place, 24 hours delivery is not a farfetched reality. The delivery speed may be faster compared to other fast delivery services and therefore increasing e-commerce space in the world of trading.Apart from improving structural efficiency in delivery goods, the proposed underground delivery will have a significant effect on the conservation of the environment. It is a reality that delivery vans are petroleum consumers and contributes to global warming. When delivery vans are stuck in traffic, they emit poisonous gases unlike when the traffic is moving.
Fortunately, an underground delivery system will not only ensures that there is efficiency, but also there is a minimization of petroleum consumption. This low consumption of gas will significantly reduce global warming, especially in urban centers.As a researched friendly company, Jingdong is bringing professionals in the feasibility study of the underground delivery system. Some of the Chinese institutions that will give the project a direction in terms of technical knowledge include Nankai University, Beijing Jiaotong University, Shanghai Maritime University, and other relevant institutions. The main task Jingdong will expect from these institutions consists of a way either to use the current underground system or to build an efficient system.
