Grocery delivery service launched by JD Indonesia

Date : 19 September 2018

Groceries delivered directly to shoppers’ homes.

Making use of QR technology

JD Indonesia has launched a grocery delivery service that allows train commuters to shop for groceries whilst on the way home. JDVirtual, the new service, is now available at selected Commuter Line train stations in Jakarta.

Commuters can order food, beverages as well as other everyday groceries by scanning a QR code at these train stations. Designed to be fast and easy to use via the JD mobile app, these purchases will then be delivered to the shopper’s registered address.

Begun in 2008, the commuter line serves the greater Jakarta Metropolitan Area and sees an average daily ridership of more than one million passengers.

New shopping experiences

The launch of JDVirtual follows the opening of JD’s first unmanned store in Indonesia last month. If successful, similar virtual stores can be rolled out to airports, bus terminals and ship ports around Indonesia. JD.ID President Director, Zhang Li said, “we believe that with JDVirtual, a borderless shopping concept will provide a real solution for modern retail industry, while also helping to run our mandate to help bring Indonesia forward.”
