Digital Smart Logistics
Intelligent Logistics attaches great importance to integrating the Internet of Things and sensor network with the existing Internet. Through the management of fine, dynamic and scientific management, logistics can be automated and visualized. Control, intelligent, and networked, thereby improving resource utilization and productivity levels, and creating a comprehensive connotation of richer social values.
In the same year that the concept of intelligent logistics was born, the State Council's "Regulations for the Adjustment and Revitalization of the Logistics Industry" proposed to actively promote the informationization of enterprise logistics management and promote the wide application of information technology; Develop and utilize new technologies in the transportation sector such as Global Positioning System (GNSS), Geographic Information System (GIS), Road Traffic Information Communication System (VICS), Automated Payment System (ETC), Intelligent Transportation System (ITS), and strengthen logistics Research on information system security systems.
Subsequently, the "Opinions of the General Office of the State Council on Promoting the Healthy Development of the Logistics Industry" in 2011 continued to emphasize the strengthening of independent research and development of new logistics technologies, with a focus on cargo tracking and positioning. Key technologies such as radio frequency identification, logistics information platform, intelligent transportation, logistics management software, and mobile logistics information services. Properly launch the application demonstration of the Internet of Things in the field of logistics. Both policies emphasize the role of key information technologies such as geographic information systems in logistics informationization from the national macro level.
With the continuous development of the logistics industry, intelligent logistics has also moved from concept to practical application. Many places in China have begun to promote the development of intelligent logistics.
Linyi, Shandong: “Intelligent Logistics” platform construction efficiency increased by 30%
We learned from the Economic Work Conference of Linyi Economic and Technological Development Zone that in the first half of this year, the district will launch the IoT industrial base project to create a "smart logistics" platform. The project is a demonstration base of China's Internet of Things logo approved by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology. By then, Linyi's logistics costs can be reduced by at least 10%, and efficiency can be increased by about 30%.
It is reported that the project was jointly created by Ziguang Co., Ltd. and IBM. Peng Jia, head of the Northern Region of Ziguang Company, told reporters that “smart logistics” is the use of modern information technology to realize the dynamic perception of logistics information. After receiving the order, the manufacturer stamps the RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) electronic tag on the product and injects the product specific information and delivery destination. In the process of transportation, the logistics company will add the transportation information such as weather, location and road conditions to the ‘smart logistics’ data center. The customer can query the relevant information through the mobile client.
Compared to traditional logistics, the biggest advantage of intelligent logistics is to save costs and improve efficiency. “The intelligent logistics data center can calculate the transportation route through the data model.”
