Ningbo Zhoushan Port's railway freight volume hits a new monthly high

With the recovery of the port, the business of Ningbo Zhoushan Port's iron ore and container sea-rail combined transportation business is growing. Ningbo Zhoushan Port announced on August 4 that 2.29 million tons of the railway freight volume was completed in July, a year-on-year increase of 22%, setting a new monthly record.

In response to the impact of heavy rainfall in parts of the south and the obstruction of traditional waterways and road freight, Ningbo Zhoushan Port actively communicated with Shanghai Railway Bureau Dispatching Office and Ningbo Train Depot to grab iron ore shipments and help relevant steel mills to stabilize the supply of goods. In July, the railway transport volume of iron ore was 920,000 tons, a year-on-year increase of 25.4%. At the same time, in order to meet the demand for electricity and coal in the “peak summer”, the business of “transit to railway” for coal at Ningbo Zhoushan Port has been upgraded from “daily shifts” to “2 days 3 shifts” starting in July, and coal freight has developed steadily.

Ningbo committed to creating port logistics "Alibaba"

Network freight, that is, matching the car with the goods through the network platform, is just like the familiar Didi taxi platform. It's just that "Didi" carries people, and it transports goods

In June, "ZJDJWL" obtained the network freight road transport operation license. This is the city's first network freight operation license. Ningbo's road freight industry officially entered the new stage of "Internet + freight". According to relevant persons of the Municipal Transportation Bureau, there are still many enterprises in the city that are preparing to declare the network freight operation license. The relevant government departments also provide guidance services for enterprises, and strive to let enterprises "run only once at most" and complete the relevant qualification review and license issuance work as soon as possible.  

Ningbo's transportation industry is interdependent with the port, which makes the market demand closely related to the trade cycle and shipping schedule, resulting in no vehicles in the peak season and idle vehicles in the off-season. Even if some platforms want to meet the market needs through self-purchased vehicles, they are worried that the cost will be too high when they are idle in the off-season. The second is the platform's advance investment. In the transportation market, as the cargo owner of Party A, there is a convention of "one settlement in 3 months " in the accounting period, and the operating costs of vehicles always exist.  

The construction and development of the platform requires a lot of capital support. In addition, although the tax department allows the platform to issue value-added tax invoices, it is often difficult for franchised individual drivers to provide a deductible basis, resulting in increased operating costs for the platform.

"As the first local network freight platform in Ningbo, "Dianji Network" has been working for 4 years. Our goal is to reach the scale of 5,000 vehicles by the end of 2021. Through resource integration and business optimization, we will continue to increase the number of orders and relevant business covers Shanghai, Qingdao and other port cities." However, Chen Kai also said that in the "Internet of Everything" era, as a new thing, it is not enough to rely on one side to fight alone. It requires the support of relevant departments and all walks of life to break the constraints of all parties on the platform and create an "Alibaba" for port logistics
