Apparently commercial drone deliveries are a thing in China. JD.com, also known as Jingdong Mall, pioneered the idea years ago and it is now a commonplace practice. Jingdong, created by founder Liu Qiangdong in 1998 is China’s leading e-commerce retailer. Beginning as simple storefront the massive online seller hit it big when it brought its services online in 2004. Since then it has become a force to be reckoned with in the e-commerce market as well as a investor in numerous start-ups. What many do not know is that it is also the foremost leader in AI drone delivery, robots, and autonomous tech. Now it has made headlines once again in Indonesia.
In a joint venture with JD.ID, Jingdong has brought its drone delivery methods to Indonesia. The completion of its test project just wrapped. Given full approval by the Indonesian government the two companies piloted a test flight on January 8th.
Now with the project fully green lit Jingdong Mall will use its vast infrastructure, combined with JD.ID’s network of storehouses to bring drone delivery to Indonesia’s many island. This is a great development for Indonesian consumers as drone delivery is far more practical given the spaced out set-up of their islands. It also allows for logistics services as well, giving the Indonesian people better relief aid as well as other fundamental services.
Jingdong’s efforts in AI drone deliveries are at the forefront of technological innovation. Their use of automation and robotics for production services are at the heart of what many believe to be the future of production and manufacture. For many that means the rest of the world needs to catch up.
The idea for drone delivery was even ventured in the U.S. back in 2013. Jeff Bezos the founder of Amazon promoted his idea for Amazon Prime Air. He had a vision of drones dropping off packages to people’s doorsteps as well. Unfortunately, federal regulations got in the way of that idea. Liu Quiangdong did not have that problem apparently and was able to implement his drone delivery service. It is now available in two countries and may spur a global adoption at some point in the future. See This Article for additional information.
