There is no professional organization for collecting and circulating commodities in the countryside, thus spontaneously forming a market. Because the frequency of commodity exchange is not high, the market has its own rules, such as the temple fair on the 15th of the first lunar month and the wholesale market in the county seat. Therefore, a county logistics system with bazaar as its core has been formed.
However, with the more detailed division of labor in the society, a small supermarket system has spontaneously formed in the countryside, with husband and wife stores as the mainstay and diversified products and services, gradually replacing most of the market's functions with those of the old monopoly on production materials, farm machinery stations and seed fertilizers, which has also reduced the market's functions.
In the past, the scene of market shopping gradually degenerated. Before the new hub was formed, the countryside of industrial products was solved in terms of information flow and postal services, but the sales channels of agricultural products did not change substantially.
The core of the problem is that agricultural products do not have a convenient channel for distribution, transfer, information exchange and price comparison. Compared with industrial products, agricultural products have biological properties and are easy to rot and deteriorate. Agricultural products are natural products with seasonal and periodic characteristics. The natural attributes of agricultural products put forward special and higher requirements for their transportation, packaging and processing, and the logistics risk of operating agricultural products is greater.
The Asia Logistics Exhibition will be held from November 6 to 9, and we look forward to your presence.
