JD.com or Jingdong is a company that first took flight in 1998. In the next twenty years, the company has become the leading online retailer in China just like Amazon in the United States. The company was originally a brick and mortar store and sold directly to consumers. When founder Richard Liu saw the potential for internet sales, Jingdong entered a new phase and JD.com was born. Since the switch, the company uses a combination of physical stores and online sales to make the company profitable. Now it pushed the envelope in the world of world of technology by testing drones.
In early 2019, JD.com was granted permission by the government to test a flight of a drone. The test took place in Indonesia and was the first of its kind. The drone delivered a pack of backpacks to a group of school children. This test has helped set the precedent for making commerce easier for people and businesses. This test allows Jingdong to give back to the customer base and be able to help as many needy children as possible.
Jingdong Mall has been at the forefront of giving back and partnering with other companies in China and Indonesia. With this success of this test, Jingdong will be able to help provide faster service to more than twenty million customers in Indonesia.
This drone test can help set Indonesia apart from other countries in the world. It can allow more people to get things much faster and at a cheaper price rather than waiting for more traditional delivery methods. By being able to make headway in Indonesia Jingdong can continue to provide the fastest service possible to a whole new market of consumers.
