The most significant impact of big data technology on the urban distribution industry is horizontal process extension and vertical process compression and simplification. From the perspective of supply and demand balance, to provide the supplier with maximum profit and provide the best service to the customer. Wu Mian, vice president of the China Logistics Association, pointed out, "In the era of Industry 4.0, big data has become the fourth largest production factor. This blue book uses big data technology to improve the predictability and strategicity of data, and Decision-making, customer relationship maintenance, resource allocation, etc. all play a positive role. "
Participated in the compiling of the Blue Book, "The Blue Book provides an in-depth interpretation of all aspects of urban distribution from seven parts. Urban distribution companies can use the Blue Book to identify user needs in depth, effectively adjust market strategies, and enable marketing investment, supply chain investment, and Maximize the return on promotional investment; Secondly, the blue book can effectively predict the development trend of urban distribution market, help urban distribution enterprises to optimize the allocation of resources, and enhance the forward-looking strategy of enterprises. Taking vertical shipments as an example, the home improvement and building materials industry is the most vigorous, and urban distribution Enterprises can lean towards the home improvement and building materials industry in terms of resource allocation; Sanlai Blue Book proposes that in the next one to two years, the physical distance of city distribution will extend from the current one-way 60 kilometers to 300 kilometers, and the city distribution company will move towards a more professional comprehensive The transformation of logistics companies. The trend of extending from the same city to the end of the city has guiding significance for the rational planning and transformation of urban distribution enterprises. "
Urban distribution market scale breaks trillions, supply and demand are highly fragmented
At present, urban distribution enterprises are facing a highly competitive and rapidly changing market environment. According to the Blue Book, the size of the city's urban distribution and logistics market has exceeded one trillion yuan, and is growing at a rate of 10% per year. Behind the huge market are 13 million city-equipped minivans that are running, five times the number of taxis. However, the city's overall emptying rate remains high, and vehicles are seriously empty.
Qin Yu, general manager of Barter
Qin Yu believes that "the serious problem of no-load of urban freight vehicles is mainly due to the lack of data analysis and prediction of the future market. Now through analysis of big data, urban distribution companies can effectively predict future market trends and competitive environments. To adjust the development strategy in a timely manner; at the same time, it can also use technology innovation to effectively solve the problems of empty driving and no-load through intelligent dispatch, less-than-truck car sharing, and short-term compensation. "
The highly fragmented supply and demand is another problem facing the urban distribution market. It can be seen from the Blue Book that the current urban logistics demand is shifting to multiple varieties, small batches, and high frequencies, and tidal demand is prominent. The urban distribution needs of different cargo owners show personalized differences, and they are upgraded from price-sensitive to service-sensitive.
"Traditional urban distribution has been unable to effectively solve the current pain points of urban logistics. The network-contracted truck platform under the concept of sharing economy is an inevitable path to effectively integrate transportation capacity and supply sources and provide a complete set of solutions for urban logistics." Qin Yu said.
As the only online truck platform in the industry that adopts the smart dispatch mode, Bartering will have much to do in the sharing economy. Its 31131 standardized vehicle services for individuals and small and micro enterprises, intelligent carpooling services for less-than-usual burdens, and KA-SDS customized supply chain solutions for enterprise customers, providing differentiated customized services based on different user groups. It coincides with the current market demand.
Smart warehouse efficiency far exceeds traditional warehouse driver happiness index improvement
In recent years, due to the development of technology and changes in customer needs, traditional storage facilities and operation methods have been unable to meet market demand, and smart warehouses have emerged at the historic moment. According to the Blue Book, compared to traditional warehouses, smart warehouses use the Internet technology + warehousing model to increase efficiency by 20% and save capital costs by 30%. It is worth mentioning that the customized warehouse allocation service of Barter Xiaobao is a benchmark case of smart warehouse. Xiaobao Warehouse has fully opened up the warehousing and distribution links, intelligently arranged and co-distributed routes, and realized intensive warehouse-integrated integrated services for customers.
The living conditions of freight drivers have been receiving much attention. The blue book featured key portraits of freight drivers. The blue book shows that the per capita income of freight drivers has increased significantly, with per capita monthly income reaching 8,000 yuan, and some drivers earning over 15,000 yuan. 37% of drivers have started to use APP to find goods, and the driver's happiness index has also increased significantly. Nearly half of the drivers said they are happy in life.
"With the rise of Internet-linked trucks, the quality and social status of freight drivers have significantly increased. Barter ’s has established a Driver Academy specifically for platform drivers to standardize the training and assessment of gold medal drivers to improve the overall service quality of drivers. Eventually, the overall service level of the industry will be raised, and the platform business will be tilted towards high-quality gold drivers, so that some hard-working and competent drivers will get rich first, "Qin Yu said.
