If you usually buy online from companies in China, surely the name of JingdongFor those who do not know very well what this company does, just tell them that we are talking about one of the largest Chinese electronic commerce companies in the country, which has just made the news after announcing, as stated in the title of this same entry, which in a period of three years will build no less than 150 airports for drones.
The real objective behind this initiative, as announced by Jingdong itself, is to promote the sending of packages through this kind of unmanned flights. Returning to the issue of airports, apparently, all of them will be located in the central Chinese province of Sichuan, in turn, one of the most mountainous in the country, so this kind of shipments can be very beneficial both for the company, that waiting reduce your costs by 70%, as for buyers whose domicile is located in a remote or inaccessible place.
Jingdong announces the construction of 150 exclusive airports to be used by drones.
As often happens with other types of companies, a very good example can be Amazon itself and even other large companies related to the world of transport and parcels such as Seur or DHL, the use of this type of technology can not only mean great benefits in terms of cost reduction and even staff, if we stick to the use of completely autonomous drones, but also in a cconsiderable reduction in time that customers should wait for their packages.
According to the Chinese company, apparently and thanks to the construction of these 150 exclusive airports for drones, it will be possible to deliver packages in less than 24 hours in areas of difficult access and poor ground communications. As a detail, tell you that in the specific case of Jingdong, it is not the first time that they work with drones since, unlike all the companies mentioned above, in this case they already use packages that can reach transport packages up to 50 kilograms.
