The necessity of developing railway logistics 2021-06-20 20:32:31 The development of modern logistics by railways is determined by the natural characteristics of railways. It is also a requirement for the improvement of the transportation system network and intermodal transportation system, or the actual development of national defense construction and green environmental protection. Requirements. (1) The promotion of railway to the development of modern logistics. Railway is an important national infrastructure, a major artery of the national economy and a popular means of transportation. It is an important pillar industry of modern logistics and plays a pivotal role in the construction and development of logistics. In 2011, the national railway freight turnover volume was 2913.03 billion ton-kilometers, an increase of 6.6% over the previous year. From 2005 to 2011, the national railway freight turnover volume was completed. The supporting role of logistics is getting stronger and stronger. (2) It is conducive to the introduction of market-oriented operating mechanisms for railways. It draws on the successful experience of railway reforms in various countries. It is generally market-oriented to carry out corporate transformation of transportation enterprises and introduce market-oriented operating mechanisms. At present, the system reform carried out by my country's railways is the basic reform of the market-oriented operation of railway enterprises. After taking a solid step in fundamental reforms, the development of modern logistics by railways can better promote the separation of integrated logistics services and transportation production, and enable logistics services to take the lead in the market. It is also based on this that the Railway Corporation launched a new round of freight reform. (3) It is conducive to enhancing the core competitiveness of railway transportation. The development of modern logistics is conducive to the subdivision of the railway service market. It is helpful for railway transportation enterprises to enhance service awareness, improve service quality, and improve the market image of railway enterprises. Under the background of release and transformation of supply and demand relationship, the core competitiveness of enterprises will be enhanced, and they will gain advantages in the transportation market. Especially with the opening up of distribution services, transportation services, warehousing, freight forwarding and other services, the capital, tactics, and management advantages of large international logistics companies are extremely obvious. The railway transportation industry can only keep up with the development trend, quickly improve the core competitiveness of enterprises, and win a broader space for survival and development for itself. (4) Conducive to more effective participation in market competition. On the one hand, in the face of fierce market competition, railways develop modern logistics and improve service quality, which can better provide users with contract-based integrated logistics services, which is conducive to attracting more Of users choose railways. On the other hand, it is conducive to existing railway production enterprises when developing logistics and planning integrated logistics schemes, they prefer railway transportation to form a stable customer base, which is conducive to expanding the share of the logistics market and enhancing market competitiveness. (5) Conducive to enhancing the comprehensive service capacity of railways. At present, railway transportation enterprises rely on the promotion of transportation capacity as the only development path. Although there is no survival worry at present, the future development is not optimistic. The development of modern logistics is conducive to railway transportation companies using existing advantages, expanding services to both ends, developing a one-stop integrated logistics service, aiming at serving customers, and designing warehousing, transportation, handling, loading and unloading, and packaging for different products. Integrating basic logistics services such as, information processing, and other basic logistics services into an integrated logistics service, gradually improve the comprehensive service capacity and profitability of the railway. (6) It is conducive to cultivating new economic growth points. Railway transportation enterprises can develop modern logistics. By integrating logistics resources, they can provide customers with integrated solutions and realize the value-added of transportation services. The profit margin is much greater than that of simple freight and warehousing. People have become a new way for railway transportation enterprises to improve their economic benefits.
