by Ling Cao
Today, JD’s Wuhan Asia No. 1 Cargo Fleet won a major award to be given by the Chinese government in recognition of its excellence and support for the people of Wuhan. A total of 15 groups are shortlisted in the anti-epidemic group category, of which JD was the only one representing the logistics industry. The other groups were from the medical, construction industry and charity institutions.
JD’s Wuhan Asia No.1 Cargo Fleet brings together employees who were working consistently to aid the fight against COVID-19, helping to transport emergency materials to hospitals and customers in a timely manner. To date, the fleet has delivered 6,000 tons of daily necessities to over 3 million people.
On the eve of Chinese New Year, the team received an urgent request to transport materials. They took immediate action to send the first batch from Wuhan’s Asia No.1 logistics park to local hospitals – all within three hours.
Further, the entire team returned to work on January 25th to continue providing needed support. Mingguang Yang, a young driver in his 20s’said, “We didn’t have time to think otherwise. We simply thought we could reunite with our families next year during Chinese New Year. This year, we had work to do to provide support during this exceptional period.”
