2017 Global Cold Chain Summit opens in Dalian
Abstract: The 2017 Global Cold Chain Summit and China-U.S. Cold Chain Logistics Conference opened in Dalian today. As China and even the world-renowned cold chain high-end events, it has been held for nine consecutive years.
The 2017 Global Cold Chain Summit and China-US Cold Chain Logistics Conference opened in Dalian today. As China and even the world’s most famous cold chain high-end event, it has been held for nine consecutive years.
The theme of this summit is "Gathering global power and building a cold chain ecosystem." The summit set up a number of thematic forums to discuss topics related to cold chain-related policies, trade, the “One Belt and One Road” strategy, technological innovation, multimodal transport modes, trends, and talents. The meeting will also publish reports on the development of the top 100 Chinese cold-chain logistics companies and the 2017 China Cold Chain Logistics. In this conference, China will jointly initiate the establishment of "Asia Pacific Food and Cold Chain Cooperation Organization" jointly with the representatives of the conference parties to accelerate the coordinated development of food safety and cold chain.
As China's economy continues to grow and the level of per capita income continues to increase, the demand for high-quality fresh produce from consumers has become increasingly strong and cold-chain logistics has developed rapidly. In 2016, the national cold storage capacity reached 42 million tons, equivalent to 105 million cubic meters, an increase of 4.6 million tons from the 2015 cold storage of approximately 11.5 million cubic meters, a year-on-year increase of 12.3%. In 2016, China's refrigerated truck market reached 115,000 vehicles, an increase of 21,600 vehicles over 2015, a year-on-year increase of 23.1%.
With the country’s supervision over food and drug safety, consumption upgrades and the “One Belt and One Road” strategy, the market potential of the cold chain market is huge. Domestically, the establishment of an open free trade zone and the interoperability of the meat market between China and the United States are favorable. The policy has continuously stimulated the development vitality of Chinese and foreign import and export trade and cross-border fresh e-commerce. It has also brought new opportunities for the development of cross-border trains and multi-modal transport of cold chain. Under the new situation, the development of cold chain, energy-saving refrigeration technology and automated storage technology, development of fresh electricity suppliers, favorable trading market policies, promotion of capital strength, and improvement of the standard system will all bring cold chain industry. New vitality and structural adjustments; China, as the most promising emerging market for global cold chain development, will usher in a golden decade of cold chain development.
Hao Ming, deputy mayor of Dalian City, said that Dalian's logistics system has been increasingly perfected, the scale of the industry has grown, the development environment has continued to be optimized, and the quality and efficiency has improved significantly. In 2016, the added value of the city's logistics industry accounted for 10.6% of the city's GDP, the total cost of social logistics accounted for 15.1% of GDP, and the status of the logistics pillar industry was increasingly consolidated. Based on the advantage of the port, the advantages of agricultural resources, and the complete advantages of the upstream and downstream industrial chain of cold chain, Dalian has continuously improved the capability of cold chain element allocation and further promoted the cold chain industry's innovation and development. Bonded port areas, specialized refrigerated berths, container terminals, 400,000-ton cold storage clusters, and 100,000-ton cold-storage storage yards will seamlessly connect at the Dayao Bay Cold Chain Center and will be modernized to 1 million tons in 2020. Cold chain logistics cluster. Dalian first established the international transit service for domestic refrigerated containers at ports, and opened the international train of refrigerated containers for the first time. The mode of “international ocean shipping + refrigerated trains + highway short haulage” model of intermodal transport has obvious effects. The cold chain companies such as Dalian Port Yidu, Zhangzidao, Hengpu, Liaoyu, Bingshan and Tielong continue to expand. At present, Dalian is based on the sea and air ports, supported by local industries, focuses on trade, faces the northeast, and radiates across the country. The cold chain logistics structure of China Unicom has basically been established, and regional cold chain logistics centers have been formed.
At present, Dalian City is committed to implementing the national “One Belt and One Road” strategy, the new round of northeast revitalization, and the construction of the free trade zone Dalian area. It will make full use of the opportunity given by the state to cooperate with Dalian and Shanghai to further optimize regional distribution and improve the focus. Industrial cold chain logistics system, actively cultivate cold chain logistics demonstration brand enterprises, accelerate the standardization of research and promotion of cold chain logistics, and improve cold chain logistics finance and trade services. Efforts have been made to build a cold chain logistics service system with good management practices, sound standards, seamless integration, and a high degree of informatization. We will strive to basically form a cold chain industrial system with perfect functions, industrial agglomeration and reasonable layout by 2020, and initially build an international cold chain logistics center in Northeast Asia.
