JD.com launches two smart delivery stations in China

JD.com has launched two smart delivery stations in the cities of Changsha and Hohhot, strengthening the e-commerce giant’s autonomous logistics capabilities.

The stations are carrying out R&D, testing and personnel training to solve issues related to last mile delivery. JD’s delivery robots can be loaded with up to 30 parcels before autonomously delivering them within a 5-kilometer radius.

The vehicles can plan routes, avoid obstacles and recognise traffic lights. Facial recognition technology enables users to easily and securely collect their parcels. Running at full capacity, the delivery stations, operating with a half-half split between robots and couriers, can deliver up to 2,000 packages a day.

The opening of the smart delivery stations comes days before JD attends its first Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada – the world’s largest event for the latest technology, innovation and creative thinking.
