What are the economic benefits of cold chain transport monitoring?

As we all know, in a social body, cold chain transportation occupies a very important position. It can bring important historical opportunities to the economic development of the society. What are the economic benefits of cold chain transportation monitoring? The following small series of long-term material for everyone to introduce:

1. Cold chain transport monitoring can extend the shelf life of agricultural products and increase their economic value

At present, due to weak restrictions on fresh storage and transportation capacity after centralized listing of agricultural products, the problem of “selling difficulties” and seasonal fluctuations in prices is prominent, and farmers’ production increases do not increase. If the place of origin has perfect pre-cooling, cold storage and processing facilities, it can effectively extend the shelf life of products, expand the sales area of agricultural products, increase the added value of agricultural products, and increase farmers' income.

2. Cold chain transportation monitoring is an important support for the food industry

Food processing and fresh food retailers and other food production and distribution industries need to open up new markets and expand market areas. Cold chains are needed as a basic support. With the improvement of people’s living standards, emerging markets such as processed foods and fresh electricity suppliers are cold. The demand for chain logistics has great potential. Many social capitals have already laid out cold chain logistics one after another, but the high cost of cold chain is always a headache for enterprises. SF Express is the pioneer of fresh cold chain logistics, and it is very optimistic about the huge cold chain market. However, the high cost of cold chain logistics directly leads to many fresh electricity suppliers not making money, and the market expansion is hindered.

3. Cold chain transportation monitoring improves the international competitiveness of agriculture

From the perspective of exports, China’s fresh agricultural products have strong comparative advantages, but due to the lag in cold chain development, exports of vegetables and fruits only account for 1%-2% of total production, of which 80% are primary products, in the international market. Lack of competitiveness. In particular, with the continuous improvement of the import standards for imported agricultural products in recent years, relevant quality, technology, and green barriers have become important obstacles to the establishment and export of agricultural product brands in China. Although the output of China's agricultural products has increased year by year, the high costs and high losses brought about by the imperfect agricultural product cold-chain logistics system in China have resulted in poor quality, high costs, and a higher selling price than the international market prices in China, losing the advantage of commercial competition. The development of cold chain logistics of agricultural products will help improve the quality of export agricultural products, break through trade barriers and enhance international competitiveness.

4. Cold chain transportation monitoring makes deep processing of agricultural products contain unlimited business opportunities

According to statistics, the food produced by the residents of China’s food industry accounts for only about 20%, while the developed countries have reached more than 70%. The post-production processing capacity of agricultural products in China is about 25%, and some developed countries are more than 70%. Deep processing of agricultural products includes processing into canned food, candied fruit, preserved fruit, extraction and processing of fruit juice, extraction of fruit and vegetable functions, processing of fruits and vegetables with MP (light), cold-dried fruits and vegetables, and processing of fruit and vegetable powder. However, in China, there is such a contradiction that there is no market after the production of agricultural products, but the food industry with a vast market cannot obtain the necessary agricultural products. In the deep processing of agricultural products, the added value of agricultural products may increase by more than 50%, and some even exceed the original value of agricultural products. For example, .1 kg of green plum is 0.7 yuan, and the processed fruit can be sold for a few dollars per gallon, and the output value is increased several times. The vast majority of fruit and vegetables in China are directly taken into the market when they are picked. The initial and semi-initial agricultural products are listed and sold. There are no pre-cooling and fresh-keeping measures, and fruit and vegetables lose tremendous value-added opportunities and space.

5. Cold chain transportation monitoring to increase the huge value-added space of agricultural products off-season sales

The anti-season sales of agricultural products have enriched and enriched the consumer food basket, which has added to the catering life of consumers, and has given farmers considerable benefits. Cold chain transportation is one of the important ways for agricultural products to achieve off-season sales. Cold storage of agricultural products is followed by cold storage during the peak season and the supply market in the off-season, such as the most common garlic tombs, carrots and apples.

The concentration trend of agricultural products in China is remarkable. However, due to the fact that the preservation technology is not too rigid, and the level of industrialization is low, the main production areas of all agricultural products fall into the dilemma of non-product storage and transportation. In order to avoid unnecessary loss of harvested agricultural products, farmers are helpless. Under the circumstances, only real estate sales and sales in the quarterly season have seriously affected the farmers’ income and planting enthusiasm in the producing areas. Taking Xiangli Pear in Korla, Xinjiang as an example, the production and collection season is usually from September to October each year, and the storage time at room temperature is 40-50 days. Due to the lack of cold chain construction, local farmers can only sell at low prices. Even so, there are still a lot of fragrant pears that can't be sold every year buried in the ground as fertilizer.

Since 2000, the state has begun to support special agricultural products, and has increased the number of people involved in the construction of local cold chains. So far, Korla's cold storage has a total of about 300,000 tons, which is mainly used for the preservation of fresh fruits and vegetables. Now Korla can supply fragrant pears all year round. It also exports to the United States, Canada, Australia and many other countries. The current purchase price of local fragrant pears is RMB 5/kg, which is more than 10 times that of the past. If you can't sell it, the quality will drop. If the growers are eager to sell without the cold storage, the purchaser will lower the price. With the cold storage and cold chain processing center, the original carrot of 1400 yuan/ton will be missed. After the peak season of the acquisition can be sold to 2,000 yuan / ton, or even higher.
