The world is moving faster than ever, and no one likes to wait for the delivery of orders anymore. But unlike the many unlucky people living all over the world, the Chinese company Jingdong formerly known as 360Buy, is making a delivery in a matter of hours!
The e-commerce company, still at its fresh start and not in the profit zone, is making all the buzz. The company is taking same-day delivery to a whole new level. Jingdong announced two delivery options:
- Night delivery – In this service, you can buy online up till 3 pm and have the items arrive at their home between 7 pm and 10 pm.
- Three-hour delivery – Well that is pretty self-explanatory! the only catch is that it is an extra payment option.
The six cities covered for both options are Beijing, Shanghai, Chengdu, Wuhan, Shenyang, and Guangzhou. More cities will be supported in due course. Jingdong has what they call a “last-mile” courier network of vans and e-bikes of its own to take items from its city warehouses direct to the door of buyers. So basically, they do not rely on third-party couriers.
Jingdong covers over 80 million people in its six cities; while Google has tried out the same-day delivery in San Francisco, Amazon too is working on the same. Who wouldn’t want to receive all their excellent online shopping within 24 hours? But this Chinese company has made it happen, and the world is taking notice. There’s a lot to learn from our fellow humans in Asia!. excellent
