JD.com Participates In The Launch Of The Smart Logistics Institute In Xiongan October 31, 2018

Ever since it commenced operations in 2004, JD.com has been growing rapidly due to its strategic moves and innovative use of technology. In recent past, the organization has been stealing all the limelight due to its involvement in projects that spark universal interest. Recently, JD took part in the formation of the urban smart logistics center based in Xiongan China. The research center became a reality after the firm partnered up with various bodies, such as Nankai University, Beijing Jiaotong University, Sinotrans & CC and Shanghai maritime university and several other facilities.

 

Jingdong announced the launch of the facility during the Global Smart Supply Chain Summit which is usually held every year. This year’s summit was held in Beijing in October. Through the research center, JD.com will once again help to protect Mother Nature, and at the same time promote sustainable consumption, by ensuring that businesses can continue with their production activities without impacting the environment negatively.

 

The primary objective of setting up the facility is to help reduce the number of freight vehicles in Chinese cities, hence reducing the rate of urban traffic emissions. The only way that it will achieve this is by coming up with a framework of underground logistics that will make use of subterranean tracks, and municipal pipe corridors to move products. Such a framework will help in reducing the rate of emissions, and preserving the “above ground space, which would probably be occupied by the myriads of freight vehicles used to move goods.

 

Additionally, the underground logistics system is even more beneficial, as it will cause little to no disruption of daily life. Apart from JD.com’s Chief executive officer, Zhenui Wang, other officials who were present, and agreed with the concept of the urban smart logistics institute. For instance, Chen Xiangsheng of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, said that, using underground space to establish a smart logistics system, will help in transforming the town into a Smart City. Thereby, it will eradicate traffic and environmental problems, and at the same time leave more urban space for more productive activities. Go To This Page for additional information.
