JD Provides Free Disinfection Services to Car-hailing Platform’s Drivers


by Hui Zhang

JD’s auto business together with its 2,118 offline car maintenance stores is providing free ozone disinfection services to 15 million taxis and car owners from Dida Chuxing, a Chinese mobile transportation platform, to ensure the safety of both drivers and passengers during the epidemic.

The 2,118 offline car maintenance stores across 31 provinces and cities across China mainly include JD Auto Service offline stores, JD’s offline car maintenance store brand, and other offline stores in partnership with JD. Taxi and private car drivers working for Dida will receive a special voucher for ozone disinfection services and can drive to the nearest participating car maintenance store to enjoy the service.

Ozone disinfection is much more effective than alcohol and other disinfectants as its bactericidal ability is 600 times that of antibiotics, 1000 times of that alcohol and 3,000 times that of chlorine / UV. In addition, ozone sterilization will not leave any harmful residual substances in the car, and can kill 99.99 percent of bacteria, viruses and fungi.

Dida Chuxing, one of the major mobile ride-hailing platforms in China, offers taxi hailing and private car hailing services to people across over 300 cities.
