The e-commerce company said that this is the third time its delivery robots have been sent to the frontline for COVID-19 relief efforts, following operations in Wuhan and Shijiazhuang.

“The first robots will be sent to 14 residential compounds in Guanggang (GZ Steel) New Town in Liwan District, ensuring the last-mile delivery for daily necessities,” said Qi Kong, chief scientist and head of autonomous driving at JD Logistics. “Now we are planning for the transportation routes and technology testing.”
