JD is relocating 3,246 delivery and sorting workers to Shanghai to alleviate delivery pressures in the Covid-hit metropolis, local media outlet 36Kr reported. Labor shortages have cut into the online retailer’s plan to fulfill delivery orders for Shanghai residents who have been facing a food shortage due to a city-wide lockdown that began in April. On April 9, JD launched livestreaming sessions to sell daily groceries to Shanghai residents. The company faced major online backlash, however, after it walked back on its words, delaying deliveries for many users. JD’s delivery capacity in Shanghai has started to recover gradually, hitting 40% of its pre-pandemic delivery force last week, and 80% this week. [36Kr, in Chinese]
