On April 3rd, JD.com announced the company is donating 150,000 COVID-19 test kits, 5,000 sets of medical protective clothing, 5,000 pairs of goggles and 20 ventilators to Uzbekistan to assist in the country’s fight against the epidemic.
On April 2nd, JD.com’s fresh food e-commerce business JD Fresh announced a plan to sell 100,000 tons of crawfish from Hubei province worth RMB 6 billion. Hubei, epicenter of the COVID-19 epidemic, produces half of China’s crawfish. Since mid-February, JD Fresh has already helped sell 1,800 tons of local fresh produce nationwide, using its retail and supply chain capabilities.
JD expects that by the beginning of April, all of Hubei employees will resume work. As part of its effort to ensure a superior customer experience, JD has worked with nearly ten cities in Hubei to help couriers, warehouse workers, and drivers return to work by arranging ground transportation.
JD.com and Gree formed a strategic partnership to develop three unique types of robots for disinfection and inspection purposes to aid the fight against COVID-19 around the world. The indoor inspection robot can discern people’s temperature in highly mobile and dense areas. The disinfection robots, both indoor and outdoor types, can automatically spray disinfectant gas and liquid, respectively, for 24 hours a day.
JD and WeChat Pay partner in “reverse logistics”. JD Logistics will pick up WeChat payment terminals from merchants and deliver to WeChat Pay to process return or exchange. JD couriers will check the serial number of each and take photos at each step in the process to ensure traceability. The service can already cover many cities within mainland China.
On March 30th, JD’s JOY celebrates its 7th birthday. A symbol of JD’s mission to deliver trust, JOY has represented JD at events all around the world. JOY participated in cross-brand collaborations and JD’s JOY STUDIO has developed tons of merchandise featuring JOY and friends too.
