Intelligent logistics industry analysis and the development trend of the future

Back source: Industry News Time: 2020-08-26 14:57:40

Intelligent logistics is the use of integrated intelligent technology to enable the logistics system to imitate human intelligence, with the ability to think, perceive, learn, reason and judge and solve certain problems in logistics by itself.

   Intelligent logistics can independently complete logistics operations including orders, transportation, warehousing, and distribution through the use of automated equipment and information systems, achieving economic, efficient, reliable, and environmentally friendly development goals. The following is a detailed introduction to the analysis of the smart logistics industry.

   With the development of science and technology, it has become an irreversible trend to replace traditional manpower by high technology. If our country wants to seize the development opportunity, it must pay attention to the deep potential of intelligent logistics. Today, the Internet of Things, the core technology of intelligent logistics, is one of the emerging industries that our country focuses on fostering, and is also the backbone of our transportation industry in the future. Under the catalysis of national policy support and key technical public relations, the logistics industry will only usher in an explosion. Style development.

   1. The historical development trend of my country's logistics industry

   Since 2010, my country's logistics industry has maintained rapid growth. By 2013, the total cost of social logistics was 10.2 trillion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 9.3%; the total revenue of social logistics was 7.2 trillion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 9.2%, and the added value of the logistics industry was 3.9 trillion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 8.5%.

   At present, most provinces and cities across the country have established a relatively complete intelligent transportation system, realizing highway network detection and vehicle dynamic supervision. All links of China's RFID industry chain are showing a momentum of rapid growth. In 2012, my country's RFID market reached 23.66 billion yuan, ranking third in the world. In May 2013, Alibaba Group launched the China smart logistics backbone network (ChinasmartLogisticNetwork for short: CSN) project. In July 2014, China Post Corporation and Alibaba Group signed a strategic cooperation framework agreement to jointly build China's smart backbone Internet of Things.

The State Council recently issued the "Medium and Long-term Plan for the Development of the Logistics Industry (2014-2020)" (referred to as the "Plan") to deploy and accelerate the development of the modern logistics industry, and proposed that by 2020 it should basically establish a reasonable layout, advanced technology, convenience and efficiency, green environmental protection, and safety. An orderly modern logistics service system. The "Plan" clearly proposes to "accelerate the development of public information platforms for transportation and logistics", which is evident in the emphasis on the development of informatization and intelligence in the logistics industry.

   Logistics is inseparable from transportation, and transportation is inseparable from informatization. Transportation information must be interconnected and applied to generate benefits. How to actively promote the sharing of transportation and logistics information and strengthen the development and promotion of interconnected applications is a new work that is being carried out from the Ministry of Transport, the provincial and municipal transportation departments, and then to the enterprises engaged in transportation and logistics.

   However, from the perspective of informatization construction, Chinese logistics companies are still at a relatively primitive and low-level stage. According to statistics, only 21% of enterprises have implemented or partially implemented informatization, and only 10% have fully implemented informatization.

   2. Problems facing the development of the logistics industry

   (1) "High social logistics costs" coexist with "low profitability of logistics enterprises". Although the total amount of social logistics in my country has grown rapidly, the total income of social logistics has grown steadily, and the added value of the logistics industry has grown steadily, we must see that the prices of my country's logistics services are still fluctuating at a low level and corporate profitability is weak. In China's logistics industry prosperity index, the main business profit index in December was 50.3%, and the index for the whole year averaged 50.6%, maintaining a low level. According to a survey of key logistics enterprises, from January to November, the main business income of key logistics enterprises increased by 5.3% year-on-year, and the profit rate of main business income was 4.1%, which was 0.9 percentage points lower than the same period of the previous year, and was lower than the scale of the same period. The profit rate of the main business of the above industrial enterprises was 1.4 percentage points. Both sets of data reflect the weak profitability of my country's key logistics enterprises.

(2) The problems of "logistics besieged city" and "last mile" are still prominent. With the acceleration of urbanization, the shortage of logistics infrastructure resources such as warehousing has become increasingly obvious. At the same time, due to the urban traffic control of freight vehicles, "road difficulties" The problems of “traveling, difficult to stop, difficult to unload goods, and difficult to obtain certificates” exist for a long time.

   (3) Logistics companies have difficulties in financing and competition in the logistics market is becoming increasingly fierce. Logistics companies are mostly asset-light companies. The difficulty of obtaining mortgage loans and insufficient funds restrict the rapid development of the logistics industry. Most of my country's logistics companies are small, weak, and low-capacity, and they are at a disadvantage in the market competition with large international logistics companies.

   (4) Low level of technology. On the one hand, the e-commerce of Chinese circulation companies still belongs to the “single-family” closed operation of e-commerce information, and has failed to form a network platform for information resource sharing and industry, and there is still a big gap with the world's first-class circulation companies; , China lacks an information integration platform that connects manufacturers, retailers, and customers, which has caused the entire industrial chain to be too long. Multinational companies cannot communicate directly with customers on the information platform, resulting in very low logistics efficiency.

   Three, the future development trend of the logistics industry

   Currently, the vigorous development of a new generation of information technology such as the Internet of Things, cloud computing, and mobile Internet is driving the transformation of China's smart logistics. It can be said that intelligent logistics will be the next stop of information logistics. Logistics informatization includes two major points: the collection of basic information, and the sharing and exchange of information. For more information, please refer to the 2015 logistics industry development trend published by the China Report Hall.

   First, in terms of basic information collection, a large amount of our information still relies on manual entry, so there are problems such as low efficiency, high error rate, and untimely updating, which affect the entire transmission and application in the later stage, which is the basis of informatization. At present, one of the solutions that we mostly adopt is to use RFID in logistics equipment, through dynamic tracking and identification, indirectly grasp the information of goods, instead of applying RFID technology to every product at once.

  In the national medium and long-term scientific and technological planning research, informatization and standardization are listed as the two most important key technologies of logistics technology. The government and administrative departments at all levels should also strengthen the construction of the basic environment, including the formulation of logistics informatization plans and corresponding laws, regulations, systems, standards, and norms, the research and development of key logistics technologies and the exploration of application models, as well as communications and networks. Facilities construction.

   Second, build a logistics public information platform, form a platform-style information exchange and sharing system, create a logistics information "highway", break information islands, and promote information exchange and sharing between different departments, different regions, and upstream and downstream of the supply chain. The establishment of a public platform has become a consensus, and everyone is calling for information integration. At present, in accordance with the requirements of the Ministry of Transport, many provinces and cities across the country have built public transportation and logistics information platforms, established relevant standards and norms for information interconnection, and built a basic logistics information exchange network. However, people sometimes understand the public information platform as a tangible organization, a centralized information storage and management organization, or a centralized management database. I think this understanding is biased. A system has many levels of work to be done. It may be necessary to establish some necessary centralized management databases, but it is more of a mechanism and a mode of information exchange and information sharing. Therefore, the platform is actually to create a way and environment for information exchange and information sharing.

The logistics industry is gradually forming seven development trends, which are informatization, intelligence, environmental protection, corporate globalization and internationalization, service quality, industrial synergy, and third-party logistics. With the in-depth development of global integration and the in-depth application of Internet and Internet of Things technologies, intelligent logistics will usher in a new historical development opportunity.
