The role of transportation 2021-06-20 16:17:57 Transportation is one of the main functional elements of logistics, and it is also the center of various activities in the logistics process. The development of an enterprise must rely on efficient production and a large amount of sales, but high-efficiency and low-cost transportation capacity is a necessary condition for the realization of enterprise development. Various activities in the logistics process, such as packaging, loading and unloading, handling, logistics information, etc., are all carried out around transportation. Guangzhou Logistics Company recognizes that with the rapid advancement of science and technology and the continuous improvement of production socialization and specialization, the production of material products and various life activities are inseparable from transportation, and transportation plays a pivotal role. The role of transportation mainly has the following aspects. 1) Transportation is the core of the logistics system function. The logistics system has three functions, namely space utility, time utility, and nature utility, which are also called three functions. The primary function 'space utility' is realized through transportation. Transportation is an indispensable function in the logistics system. The Guangzhou-Lianyungang logistics line enables the goods to reach the consumer at an appropriate time through transportation, which stimulates consumers to consume. If the transportation system fails and the goods cannot be delivered to the designated place at the designated time, the consumer's needs for the goods will not be met, and the entire transaction process will not be realized. Therefore, transportation is the key to various activities in the logistics process. The dominant position of the transportation function in the main function of logistics has become more prominent and has become the core of all functions. 2) Transportation can expand the market scope of commodities. In ancient market transactions, commodities can only be traded locally, and each enterprise can only face several nearby markets. With the development of various means of transportation, enterprises can sell far away through transportation, and the sales scope of enterprises has greatly increased. With the development of various advanced trading methods, the scope of the enterprise's market also has an infinitely expanding development trend with the development of the network. In order to better cooperate with the logistics line from Guangzhou to Yangzhou, the company's goods must be delivered to the corresponding market smoothly, which must rely on transportation. Therefore, transportation can help enterprises expand the market scope of their merchandise sales and bring better development opportunities to enterprises. 3) Transportation affects other components of logistics. Transportation in the entire logistics process also affects other aspects of logistics. For example, the choice of transportation mode determines the packaging requirements of the goods to be shipped; the use of different transportation tools determines the supporting loading and unloading tools and the design of receiving and shipping platforms. Therefore, formulating a reasonable transportation plan is a prerequisite for the success of logistics activities. 4) Transportation can ensure the stability of commodity prices. Due to the different geographical conditions in various regions, the resources they possess are also different. Assuming that there is no smooth transportation system, then the goods in other regions cannot reach the local market, and the goods needed locally can only be supplied locally. It is precisely because of the imbalance of this resource reserve that leads to the imbalance of commodity supply. Therefore, the price of commodities may fluctuate greatly. However, if you have a smooth transportation system, when the supply of goods in the local market is insufficient, foreign goods can enter the local market through the transportation system of the Guangzhou-Changzhou logistics line, and local surplus goods can also be transported through this transportation system. Other markets, thereby ensuring the stability of commodity prices. 5) Transportation rationalization is the key to logistics rationalization. Logistics rationalization refers to the formation of optimal logistics functions based on the rationalization of various logistics subsystems. Logistics is the foundation and core of each function, which directly affects the logistics subsystem. Only by rationalizing transportation can the logistics structure be more reasonable and the overall function more superior. Therefore, transportation rationalization is the key to logistics rationalization. This article is from 830 reprinted please keep
