To celebrate JD’s 17th 618 Grand Promotion, JD.com and Shanghai Animation Film Studio released a micro movie “JOY Story III: Returning to No. 618”. The micro movie tells of the journey of JD’s JOY, who is brave and smart, with classical Chinese animation figures including Monkey King and Nezha.

To prepare for this year’s 618, JD has expanded its highly automated Asia No.1 logistics parks network to 28 parks, which can increase same or next day delivery service coverage, especially for lower tier markets. The three new parks are in Langfang, Hebei province, Dezhou, Shandong province and Zhengzhou, Henan province.
