JD’s self-developed logistics drone was dispatched from Xi’an to Henan province and put into use since Jul. 22 to deliver emergency needs in Xinxiang, a flood-stricken city to the north of Zhengzhou, Henan province as the rain in Central China continues to strike the region.

In addition to facilitating the transportation of goods, JD’s rescue drones were also used in Zhongmou county of Zhengzhou, to help survey the flood.
