With the trail of devastation that Hurricane Harvey left in its wake, the city of Houston and the individuals inhabiting it had much to struggle through including the loss of their houses, their pets, family members and even their own lives. Thankfully, in the midst of a time that seemed hopeless to recover from, Dallas energy company Stream Energy stepped in as one of the first businesses to devote its time and effort those affected whether they were customers or not.
By nature, Stream Energy is no stranger to philanthropic endeavors. As an extension of their giving, they created the foundation “Stream Cares” to help those across the state of Texas and around throughout the nation like it has done for over 12 years. Hurricane Harvey has provided an excellent opportunity for businesses in Dallas such as Stream to promote their brand as charitable, philanthropic companies that put forth far more than money to those who are in need.
It is fairly new and different for a business to have a subsidy dedicated solely to philanthropy. Despite the nascence of such a frontier, there are positives to this; the central ones being the feeling of altruism that benefits the community and winning the respect and trust of potential customers and the community as a whole.
As it stands, when a corporation gives back, whether to a charitable organization or a sole individual, it is done so in the public eye with hopes that it downplays a scandal or something equally as damaging that threatens to portray the company in a particular light. It is commonplace for American companies to give back to companies around the world. Stream Energy differentiates itself from other companies engaging in philanthropy by keeping the generosity relegated to the community through collaborations with Habitat for Humanity and the Red Cross in addition to employees and management giving back through grassroots work.
By taking care of their employees and community, Stream Energy cements itself as a true champion of giving back in any way humanly possible.
JD.com has caused a huge disturbance in the Chinese shipping industry. Recently, JD.com announced that they will open up their a logistics network to private consumers and businesses. The move announced on Thursday will first be rolled out the cover the regions of Beijing, Shanghai, and Guangzhou. For now, the move will only be directed towards organizations and later might move to individual citizens.

Alibaba holding’s rival JD.com are already making moves towards including residents.
The move by JD.com is way bigger than simply offering new perks, the move is a shift to monumental conversion to the likes of UPS and or FedEx where all their current warehouses and logistic vehicles will not be used for this purpose. The company is confident, however, that they will be able to reach over 99% of the population with no problem. Similar to JD.com’s move, other giants like Amazon are also moving into the parcel delivery business, however, JD.com still remains with the advantage as they already hold many of their own vehicles to begin shipping immediately.
Although Amazon will only present that service in the United States, JD.com has enough competition in China with number 2 Alibaba Holdings searching for ways to get ahead.Now that both companies are offering the same services, the competitive motives now lead them to fight for who offers the best service. Alibaba Holdings has spent much of its revenue on express overnight delivery, a strategy that they believe will put them on top of JD.com. On the other side, JD.com is putting much of its revenue towards automating its warehouses to a better accommodate the large amounts of orders that will come through their doors, the move will also reduce mistakes and cut processing times which are sure to make their customers very happy.
