Overview of the development of aviation logistics 2021-06-20 22:45:17 Aviation logistics was developed in the 1920s. On December 17, 1900, the first airplane designed by the Wright brothers in the United States successfully flew, marking the beginning of world aviation history. In 1909, France was the first to establish commercial air transportation. At the beginning, it was mainly passenger transportation, followed by mail and military goods transportation. Air transportation appeared and developed in France, Germany, Britain, the United States and other countries one after another. During the Second World War, the quality, technology and scale of aircraft developed and improved rapidly. After the Second World War, a large number of military aircraft were converted to civilian use. Countries vigorously developed the aviation industry and improved aviation technology. The air cargo volume continued to increase, which greatly promoted the development of air cargo and gradually formed a global air cargo system. Air freight is fast, saves money and time, high efficiency and global characteristics ensure that goods can seize the best price opportunity to enter the market, so it is suitable for industries with short production cycles and high transportation requirements. These industries generally have high industrial concentration, advanced technology and management, and a strong willingness to use social logistics and supply chain management services. In exploring the strategic issue of how to meet cargo owners' logistics and supply chain management needs, air cargo has been integrated into the development process of logistics, and air logistics has gradually evolved. Air logistics is not general air cargo, nor can it be simply understood as an extension of traditional air cargo services. It is based on information technology, centered on customer needs, combined with the company’s supply chain management, and designed to cooperate with customers to design a “one-stop shop”. Air cargo and air logistics are in line with each other, and the integration of air cargo into logistics constitutes the rise of air logistics. On November 2, 19, the Civil Aviation Administration of China was established, opening a new chapter in the development of my country's civil aviation industry. On March 5, 1980, the Civil Aviation Administration of China was changed from being subordinate to the Air Force to an agency directly under the State Council, which provided favorable institutional conditions for the development of China's aviation logistics. China's aviation logistics grew out of nothing and developed rapidly in more than thirty years. It is inseparable from the rapid development of China's civil aviation. It can be said that the history of the development of China's civil aviation is the history of the development of China's aviation logistics. At present, with the rapid development of the world economy, aviation logistics has gone through a period of development and is entering a period of rapid growth. China's aviation logistics will also merge into the torrent of world aviation logistics development.
