A few days before one of the largest e-commerce platforms in China making a debut in the largest consumer electronics show in the world, JD.com launched two smart deliveries in Hohhot and Changsha. This move has strengthened the China’s largest retailer’s autonomous logistics capabilities.
JD.com is striving to solve problems associated with last mile delivery. Currently, it is undertaking R&D, testing as well as personnel training in the stations. The JD’s robots can deliver up to 30 parcels autonomously within a radius of 5 kilometers. The robots are designed to plan routes, avoid obstacles and even recognize security lights. The use of facial recognition enables the vehicle to authenticate the customer and allow them to collect the parcels. The stations have been enabled to run full capacity and both robots as well as couriers are responsible for achieving the target of 2,000 package deliveries a day.
The launch of the stations came at a time when JD was preparing to attend the first Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada. The show is one of a kind in the world for innovation, latest technology as well as critical thinking.
