Jingdong Builds A New Research Center To Build Smart Cities

 

Jingdong is starting a new research center that will develop futuristic automation technology that will be used to create smart cities. This research center is located in Xiongan, China, and was announced at the Beijing event on October 18, the 2018 Global Smart Supply Chain Summit. Named the Urban Smart Logistics Institute it will create urban logistics systems, urban logistics hubs, cloud computing platforms, big data, and other technology.

 

There were several founding members of this JD.com research center. These are Beijing Jiaotong University, Nankai University, Beijing Wuzi University. the Institute of Comprehensive Transportation at the National Development and Reform Commission, Sinotrans & CSC, Shanghai Maritime University, and the Shanghai Municipal Engineering Design Institute.

 

Quite a bit of the urban traffic emissions is released by freight vehicles in China. They also take up around a third of road capacity, leading to congestion on the roads in urban settings. Since urbanization is polluting the environment and a big cause of climate change Jingdong Mall is seeking to build a supply chain that gets as many freight vehicles off the road as possible.

 

The first thing this research center will focus on is underground logistics systems. Jingdong wants to build underground pipes that contain tracks which will allow packages to go underground from the factory to urban logistical hubs scattered around a city. This will eliminate much of the traditional logistic systems which take up too much space in a city. Click Here to learn more.

 

With smart cities, the goal is to make the best use of all the space in the city as well as conserve resources. The Jingdong research team says that building a 3-dimensional underground smart logistics system will change the industry for the better. It helps to reduce traffic congestion, is more environmentally-friendly, and save precious urban space.

 

Jingdong is the largest retailer in China so they ship a lot of packages every day. They are a very innovative company, such as building the first fully-automated fulfillment center on the planet. They can also deliver packages by drone and are exploring new propulsion technologies which will get packages delivered even faster in the future and at a lower use of energy.
