Deliveries drive home run for Jingdong Daojia
With a rising demand for delivery services, China’s Jingdong Daojia says its first-half income has jumped by nearly eight times.
The on-demand logistics and grocery online-to-offline e-commerce platform says its monthly gross merchandise volume (GMV) growth pace reached 30 per cent in the first half with the number of online orders rising 20 per cent.
JD Daojia merged with crowd-sourcing delivery platform Dada last year, and partners with merchants and local retailers by offering on-demand grocery, food and general merchandise shipping for consumers using the JD.com shopping platform.
Walmart’s monthly transaction size through JD Daojia jumped last month to nearly four times more than that of January.
JD Daojia now connects with more than 70,000 offline retail outlets in 22 Chinese cities including supermarket chains such as Auchan, Walmart and Yonghui, offering one-hour delivery.
