The Development of Intelligent Logistics Industry

Logistics industry is a national economic supporting industry. From 2009 to 2016, the proportion of the total cost of national social logistics in GDP decreased from 18.1% to 15.5%, but compared with the proportion of logistics cost in developed countries accounting for about 10% of GDP, there is still a big gap. Improving logistics efficiency and reducing logistics costs have become the goal of the government, logistics enterprises and their customers strive to achieve. On July 2016, the executive meeting of the State Council has deployed to promote "Internet" efficient logistics, and intelligent logistics marked by modern information technology has become the forerunner of supply-side structural reform of logistics industry. In particular, the rapid development of e-commerce logistics breaks the historical record of logistics industry, solving one world-class logistics problem after another, giving birth to a variety of new business models and formats, so intelligent logistics has entered a new stage of rapid development.


Due to the maturity of AI, Internet of things and robot technology, the logistics industry is undergoing earth-shaking changes, from warehousing to transportation to distribution, every link is intelligent. The logistics company has already acted. Similar to one of the most basic parts of intelligent logistics: package volume testing, they are rigid requirements. It greatly improves the overall work efficiency, solves the rapid charging of logistics packages, fast and reasonable sorting layout and the utilization rate of loading and distribution, and can also solve the control of material cost such as packing boxes. Therefore, the final application of intelligent logistics is still unmanned.
