Smart logistics facilitates transportation in China amid epidemic

April 10, 2020


Abstract : Smart logistics have facilitated the transportation of supplies in China amid the novel coronavirus pneumonia (COVID-19) outbreak, helping enterprises accelerate production resumption and boost economic growth.

BEIJING, April 10 (Xinhua) -- Smart logistics have facilitated the transportation of supplies in China amid the novel coronavirus pneumonia (COVID-19) outbreak, helping enterprises accelerate production resumption and boost economic growth.

A Jiangxi-based logistics firm developed a smart logistics platform in 2018 to make a match between goods and vehicles and visualize shipping routes.

Manufacturers and drivers can log in the platform through a mobile phone App and enter their demands. Within 50 minutes, the smart system will pitch divers and vehicles for goods to be transported, plan shipping routes via big data technology within ten minutes, and facilitate transaction with fees to be paid online in a contactless manner.

In such a way, the smart logistics platform improves distribution efficiency during the epidemic prevention and control.

Meanwhile, intelligent robots are deployed to ensure logistics management and reduce risk of infection in many jobs during the anti-epidemic period.

An unmanned warehouse for automobile logistics in Chongqing uses robots to transfer and store auto parts in designated areas.

Smart robots are also applied in a community in Guangzhou, south China's Guangdong Province to deliver parcels. After selecting goods and entering order information by supermarket employees, the robots can intelligently plan routes, avoid obstacles on the road, go into the communities, take elevators, and finally drop off the goods to the doors of the buyers.
