According to Axios, Chinese e-commerce giant JD.COM has been using automation to remove slow, costly humans and to ensure that any purchase made before 11 AM is delivered anywhere in China the same day. Calling this a sign of things to come, Amazon is already working on reducing the number of white-collar staff.

This is the future. Like JD, its fierce e-commerce rival Alibaba has also built an entirely automated warehouse, showing how retail will probably be done in years to come everywhere including the U.S. and Europe.
