JD Transports 10,000 COVID-19 Testing Kits to Heilongjiang
by Ling Cao
As of 9:45 am on April 13th, JD has transported 10,000 COVID-19 nucleic acid testing kits to the Suifenhe Center for Disease Control and Prevention in Heilongjiang province. With the increase of COVID-19 cases in the province, the small city on the Russian border with a population of just 70,000 was facing a lot of pressure.
After DAAN Gene Co., a Guangzhou-based leading high-tech company focused on molecular diagnostic techniques, reached out in the night of April 11th with a request to urgently send nucleic acid testing kits to Suifenhe city, JD formed an emergency response team. Using a combination of air and land transportation, the company was able to get the kits to the Sunfenhe Center of Disease Control and Prevention on April 13th. As nucleic acid testing kits must be kept under strict temperature conditions and have a limited shelf life, JD’s cold chain logistics network was essential to completing the task in a timely manner.
DAAN Gene Co. has worked with JD during the epidemic of COVID-19 in China to transport medical devices and nucleic acid testing kits from Guangzhou to other cities in China.
