China's pallet logistics meets new challenges in the rapid development

in the past, some people mistakenly regarded pallets as packaging accessories, or limited the functions of pallets to loading, unloading and handling links. In recent years, with the continuous warming of logistics "heat", more and more people have found that pallets, as "movable platforms" and "movable ground", also have outstanding effects in packaging, transportation, warehousing and other logistics links, Especially in the process of "pallet consistent transportation" and "door-to-door" logistics services, it shows an irreplaceable position. "Pallet logistics" and "container logistics" as the two branches of containerized logistics, have attracted widespread attention and favor in the industry, and gradually become the "Darling" of modern logistics and supply chain

containerization is one of the ways to integrate the handling, packaging, warehousing, transportation and other logistics activities based on the containerized unit goods. The containerized unit goods are composed of pallets, which are organically combined with forklifts, cranes, shelves, containers, cars, trains, ships, aircraft, warehouses, distribution centers and other related equipment, appliances and facilities, neat and uniform throughout the whole process, Finally, all links of logistics will be matched, unified, coordinated, smooth and connected, so as to achieve the purpose of low cost and high efficiency of logistics. Among them, pallet is the most basic logistics equipment, the carrier connecting the preceding and the following, and also the most critical basic constituent element in the whole logistics process. No matter in terms of the breadth of pallet utilization, the systematicness of pallet utilization links and the common characteristics of pallets, pallet logistics can be regarded as an important branch of the whole logistics system. A large number of practices have shown that it is very scientific and reasonable to promote the standard matching of packaging modulus, forklift performance, car body and container specifications, shelf and shelf dimensions based on pallets; Taking pallet logistics as the standard, the combination and connection degree of logistics links such as constant transportation, warehousing, loading and unloading, packaging, circulation and processing, and distribution can avoid waste in the logistics process and greatly save costs; Examining whether logistics is scientific and reasonable from the perspective of pallet logistics can significantly improve the efficiency of 742 ⑴ the whole process of logistics

although people haven't known about the role of pallets for a long time, they also established pallet joint ventures in Australia as early as the Pacific War. In the 1950s and 1960s, the United States, Britain, France, Germany, Sweden, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Australia, Canada and other countries began to establish pallet leasing and recycling stations in transportation hubs such as wharves and freight stations, Later, European pallet consortium and European pallet association were established. Although Japan started a little later, it also established the tray Association at least 40 years ago. China began to carry out counterpart pallet transport between Beijing and Shanghai in 1965, which is a technology that directly touches the benefits of the measurement and control system. In the 1980s, the Ministry of communications allocated special funds to promote pallet transport between Shanghai and Dalian. After entering the new century, the production and use of pallets have witnessed an unprecedented gratifying situation. The great changes and the fierce development momentum have attracted the attention of the world. The reason is that after entering the 21st century, China's logistics "heat" continues to rise, and pallets lag behind in the rapid development of logistics, becoming the "bottleneck" of the rapid development of logistics, which urgently requires changing the current situation as soon as possible. To this end, the China Federation of logistics and purchasing decided to set up a pallet Professional Committee in 2002 and entrusted the Logistics Research Institute of Beijing University of science and technology to be responsible for the preparatory work. In June of the same year, the Federation issued document wlxz [2002] No. 89, appointing Wu Qingyi as the chairman of the tray Professional Committee (Preparatory), and Jin Wei as the Secretary General After the establishment of the Pallet Professional Committee (Preparatory), a large-scale pallet research activity was carried out, and the pallet production and use status in China at that time were basically mastered It was found that there were only 135 pallet production enterprises in China that year, and the circulation volume of pallets ranged from 50 to 70 million. However, in 2005, after a short three-year service life had been extended to a great extent, China's pallet production enterprises surged to 650, with an output of 25million. In 2006, the total number of pallets circulating in China's market reached 150million, of which the growth rate of plastic pallets was more than 30%. The statistical data of China's pallet products also confirmed that, At present, the annual sales volume of pallets in China is about 100000, and the growth rate of pallet station members is as high as 40%. After the substantial increase in pallet demand and the rapid expansion of the pallet Market in China, foreign-invested enterprises poured in and entered on a large scale By the end of 2006, five foreign businesses had set up pallet system companies or liaison offices in China, four of which had begun preliminary work in key cities in China Ppal, the world's largest plastic pallet project, signed supply agreements with Maoming Petrochemical Industrial Zone and Sinopec Maoming Branch with a total investment of 300million euros and an annual output of 6million plastic pallets

in the tide of economic globalization in recent years, international pallet exchanges are very active. The expert meeting on pallet standardization of seven Asian countries was held in Tokyo in 2002, and the expert meeting on pallet standardization of nine Asian countries was held in Seoul in 2003. The purpose of both meetings was to promote the standardization of pallets for consistent transportation in Asia, that is, intermodal general flat pallets. Tray meetings in China, Japan and South Korea are more frequent. In 2004, an expert meeting on pallet standardization among China, Japan and South Korea was held in Seoul, and a consensus was reached on the specifications of the implementation of the universal flat pallets for Asian intermodal transport and the preparation for the establishment of the "Asia Pacific pallet system alliance". In 2005, the second China Japan South Korea pallet conference was held in Beijing, and it was preliminarily determined to establish the "Asia Pacific pallet system alliance", using 1100mm*1100mm and 1200mm*1000mm pallets. In November of the same year, Then, the third China Japan South Korea pallet conference was held in Fugang, Japan. The Pallet Professional Committee of China Federation of logistics and purchasing, Japan Pallet Association and South Korea Pallet Association jointly signed the "China Japan South Korea pallet standardization expert agreement" and the "proposal to the governments of China, Japan and South Korea". In June 2006, the "Asia Pacific pallet system alliance" was officially established, At the meeting, it was announced that the standard sizes of Asian intermodal universal flat pallets are 1100*1100mm and 1200mm*1000mm. In November of the same year, the Pallet Professional Committee of the China Federation of logistics and purchasing and the Asia Pacific pallet system alliance jointly held the "2006 China pallet international seminar" in Beijing. Pallet industry organizations and their principals from more than 10 countries, including the European pallet Association, the Japanese Pallet Association and the Korean Pallet Association, attended the meeting and delivered speeches. Representatives from Germany, France, Australia, Japan, South Korea and China participated in a heated discussion, More than 200 domestic and foreign pallet production and use enterprises attended the meeting. Leaders of government departments and industry organizations such as the national science and Technology Commission and the China Federation of logistics and procurement attended the meeting and gave enthusiastic guidance and support. More than 30 pallet manufacturing enterprises exhibited the latest products. The atmosphere of the meeting was very warm, and the effect of the meeting was unexpected

in order to eliminate the confusion of pallet specifications and standards formed in China's history, a pallet standard revision working group led by the China Federation of logistics and purchasing, with the participation of the Ministry of communications, the Ministry of railways, the National Packaging Standards Committee and relevant experts, pallet production and use enterprises, was established in June 2005, and the first working meeting was held. As the only cross departmental, cross industry and cross regional pallet industry organization in China, the Pallet Professional Committee has undertaken the specific work of the research group, such as questionnaire survey, data collection, enterprise research and document drafting. He assisted in organizing the second working meeting on the revision of pallet national standards held in Beijing in March 2006 and the fifth and sixth working meetings held in Beijing and Shanghai in September and October of the same year. National standards and logistics standard management departments, pallet production and use enterprises, experts and scholars were invited to attend the meeting. Representatives of all units expressed their views, expressed their opinions freely, expressed their opinions frankly, and put forward many valuable suggestions at the meeting. After extensive consultation and repeated research and demonstration, the final draft for examination was approved in December 2006 and has been submitted to the National Standards Commission and other departments for approval and publication

we can understand that the great development of China's economy has aroused the great development of logistics industry, which has promoted the great development of pallets. On the contrary, the serious lag of pallet development is restricting the rapid development of logistics. At the same time, we should also see that although China's pallets have undergone great changes in recent years, and the development speed is amazing, there is still a big gap from the overall requirements of logistics and national economic development. For example, although the number of pallet production enterprises in China has increased rapidly, the scale is not large enough and the strength is not strong enough; The quality of pallets, both in material and technology, is also unsatisfactory; There is more than one pallet in Japan, South Korea and Australia, and one pallet in every 10 talents in China; Pallet sharing, leasing and recycling have already formed a scale abroad and become mature. China has just started, the standards are not unified, the behavior is not standardized, and the industry resources have not been integrated; Foreign funded enterprises use abundant funds, advanced management modes and modern technical means to enter China's Pallet Market on a large scale, forming a strong impact. China's pallet enterprises will meet severe challenges and tests in the rapid development. Pallet professional committees shoulder the important mission of industry development, and have the obligation to promote and guide China's pallet production enterprises to grow rapidly, so as to make China's pallet industry develop better and faster, Truly play a role of bridge and link between the government and enterprises

2007 is the second year of China's "Eleventh Five Year Plan". In addition to continuing to assist the National Standards Commission and the National Logistics Technical Standards Commission in the revision of standards such as the experimental methods and performance requirements of intermodal flat pallets, the Pallet Professional Committee will also complete the adjustment of organizational structure and the addition of vice chairmen within the year. Push the people who have certain prestige and influence in the pallet field, are eager to participate in the construction of pallet logistics, and actively contribute to the pallet cause to the leadership position of the pallet industry organization to play a greater role; Set up a pallet expert advisory steering group, recommend several experts who have research on pallets and professional vanadium battery system design, integration and manufacturing level improvement and improvement will also significantly reduce the cost. Experts, scholars and enterprise decision makers who are willing to devote their energy and wisdom to the pallet industry are members of the group, and participate in pallet enterprise qualification certification, pallet product quality inspection and testing, pallet standard revision Drafting of pallet regulations, evaluation of pallet projects, international exchange of pallets, editing and reviewing of pallet professional books, etc; In the second half of this year, the Pallet Professional Committee will also co host the second pallet international seminar with relevant pallet international organizations, so as to build an exchange platform for China's pallet production enterprises and users again, so that Chinese and foreign enterprises can gather together, face-to-face and in-depth study and discuss topics of common concern, and comprehensively establish a strategic partnership; In order to enable Chinese pallet enterprises to better understand and master foreign management methods and technical means, the Pallet Professional Committee also plans to organize an investigation and training mission abroad this year, on the one hand, to study and investigate, on the other hand, to seek cooperation opportunities and expand pallet export trade

today, with the rapid development of pallets in China and pallet enterprises meeting the test, the Pallet Professional Committee will live up to the mission of the times, and will continue to provide services for pallet enterprises with enthusiasm as always. At the same time
