Chinese B2C e-commerce company JD.com announced the launch a new delivery service which aims to provide punctual delivery within a designated period of time to consumers.
Users only need to pay CNY6 or CNY39 for a large piece of goods to require the delivery to be during a designated period of time over the coming week. The delivery service is available from 9am to 10pm.
The new service marks JD's latest move in the logistics and delivery service sector. So far, this service has been launched in seven major Chinese cities, including Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Chengdu, Wuhan, Shenyang, and Xi'an. In the future, this service is expected to expand across the entire country.
JD's logistics distribution service has formed three networks, including the logistics network for medium- and small items; the logistics network for large items; and the cold-chain logistics network. At present, JD has seven "smart" logistics centers, 254 large warehouses, 5.5-million-square-meter warehousing facilities, and 6,780 delivery sites and pick-up points.
JD's representative told local media that with the continuous optimization of JD's delivery routes, they can not only improve delivery efficiency, but also can achieve punctual delivery.
