The Ministry of Transport of China has summoned four cargo service platforms including Didi Freight, the cargo division of Didi Chuxing, and issued reminders to Didi Chuxing and other three ride-sharing platform operators on Thursday. The reminder noted recent truck drivers’ feedback revealed serious problems such as reckless adjustment of pricing rule and raising membership fees, triggering low price competition as well as some risks in transportation including overload and driving beyond statutory speed limits, so the ministry asked Didi and peers shall take their problems seriously and immediately make rectifications, according to the agency’s statement on Friday.

So these regulators directed ride sharing platforms to accelerate compliance work and strictly abide by face mask mandates and other requirements to protect and enhance the welfare of workers and passenger during the pandemic. In the end of the month, Didi posted revenue for the third quarter of RMB43.4 billion (US$6.71 billion), declining 1.7% from a year earier. It also said Alibaba chairman and CEO Daniel Zhang, who served as the director since 2018, has resigned from Didi’s board, replaced by Yi Zhang, Alibaba Group's senior legal counsel.
