Policy escort smooth logistics
In Shuangfu Street, Jiangjin District, Chongqing City, before dawn, the Jiachuan logistics base is already busy, and heavy towing trucks full of Dongfeng cars drove out in sequence. At present, the operation of Chongqing Jiachuan Sanjie Transportation Co., Ltd. has been fully restored. 'Our company can get out of the predicament smoothly without the strong support of the government.' Looking at the continuous flow of vehicles in and out of the logistics base, the head of the company Yin Shipin showed a smile on his face.
The government carefully assists and implements preferential policies
Jiachuan Sanjie Company is mainly engaged in the transportation of commercial vehicles. Recalling the early days of the resumption of work, Yin Shipin frowned: 'Work was suspended for 31 days. The goods received at the beginning of the year could not be shipped out in the warehouse. Some upstream companies have just resumed work after the year, but their production capacity has not recovered. Water, electricity, pens and pens are all expenses, with more than 900 employees. , Wages must be paid, five insurances must be paid, and funds are difficult to turn over.'
The enterprise is in difficulties, and the government comes to help. Shuangfu Sub-district organizes personnel and sets up special classes of 'Working Teams in Enterprises' in accordance with 'One Enterprise One Policy' to help enterprises coordinate funds and strive for policy support. Jiangjin District promptly issued the 'Measures for Commencement and Resumption of Work in Jiangjin District Commercial Circulation Enterprises' and other documents to promote the resumption of work and production of commercial and logistics enterprises in an orderly manner.
With the active help of the relevant departments of Shuangfu Street and Jiangjin District, Jiachuan Sanjie Company enjoys some preferential policies such as social security units to pay partial reductions and exemptions, and phased reduction of corporate electricity, water and gas costs. Guangshui Electric and medical insurance fee reduction and exemption have reduced expenses by more than 800,000 yuan, and basically reached the target output value in only three months. As of the end of May, the company has achieved an output value of 245 million yuan, 135,000 commodity vehicles, and a cumulative transportation mileage of 23.82 million kilometers. 'Look, there are long queues of transportation vehicles coming in and out every day!' Yin Shipin said with a smile.
This year’s 'Government Work Report' proposes to increase tax and fee reduction efforts, and continue to implement the policies of lowering the value-added tax rate and corporate pension insurance rate that were introduced last year. In the early stage, the tax and fee reduction policies that expire before June, including the reduction and exemption of civil aviation development funds, port construction fees, etc., have been extended to the end of this year. A series of preferential policies have provided strong support for the recovery of the logistics industry.
A few days ago, the General Office of the State Council forwarded the 'Implementation Opinions on Further Reducing Logistics Costs' of the National Development and Reform Commission and the Ministry of Transport and proposed measures to reduce taxes and fees such as reducing road traffic costs and lowering railway air freight charges. Dai Dongchang, deputy minister of the Ministry of Transport, said, “Through optimizing the process of government affairs, we will further promote transportation and logistics to reduce fees and improve quality and efficiency. It is expected to reduce logistics costs by more than 130 billion yuan this year.” Currently, a series of tax cuts and cuts The fee policy has been promulgated and is being implemented in various places with effective results.
Improve corporate service quality and assume social responsibility
On April 11, the six major parts of Airbus aircraft on board 'COSCO SHIPPING Nebula' arrived at Tianjin Port safely. Since the outbreak of the epidemic, Tianjin Port Group has unloaded 21 sorties of large parts of Airbus aircraft. In the first five months of this year, Tianjin Port completed a port throughput of 168 million tons, a year-on-year increase of 1%; completed a container throughput of 6.895 million TEUs, a year-on-year increase of 1.6%.
Ports are known as a barometer of economic development and play an important role in maintaining the stability of the industrial supply chain. In order to accelerate the economic and trade recovery, the transportation department has jointly issued policies with multiple departments to coordinate service guarantees and facilitate economic and trade exchanges. Port companies have also taken the initiative to assume social responsibilities, and have launched heart-warming measures such as reducing fees and optimizing services.
Tianjin Port took the initiative to introduce a series of fee reduction measures to reduce the burden on client companies affected by the epidemic. Including the reduction and exemption of warehouse usage fees, exemption of domestic and foreign trade container storage fees, exemption of import and export container-related expenses for inland enterprises before the end of this year, etc., and also reduced foreign trade handling charges to the lowest level. Since March 27, the “Daily Shift” of the branch line within the Bohai Rim has transferred 100,000 TEUs of containers free of charge, reducing rents for 157 small, medium and micro enterprises by more than 65 million yuan.
Simultaneously with measures to reduce fees, there are also a series of measures to improve efficiency and optimize services. Since the beginning of this year, Tianjin Port has sorted out the entire timeline of ships arriving at the port, operating to leaving the port, and is accurate to every minute of every link. At the same time, we will work with the customs to promote the smart platform for port collection and decentralization, promote the import 'ship-side direct pick-up' and export 'ship-side direct loading' operation modes, and speed up the customs clearance of goods. 'Tianjin Port Group will further reduce fees and improve efficiency, optimize services, and help'six stability' and'six guarantees.'' said Chu Bin, secretary of the party committee and chairman of Tianjin Port Group.
Not only ports, but other related companies have also helped logistics companies resume work and production by reducing fees and optimizing services. The railway department reduces the logistics costs of enterprises by gradually lowering freight and miscellaneous expenses; at the same time, it closely meets market demand, increases the deployment of containers, optimizes the supply of freight products, and improves service quality.
Optimize logistics management and improve efficiency of intermodal transportation
One day in May, facing the drizzle on the Yangtze River, a cargo ship full of containers sailed into the Guoyuan Port in Chongqing Liangjiang New District. The quay crane slowly lifts the container and puts it into the truck. The imported glass materials will depart from Orchard Port and be shipped to various places. 'According to the timeliness requirements of different manufacturers for raw materials, you can choose multiple transportation methods such as river-sea, iron-sea, land-sea combined transportation. This not only reduces costs, but also takes into account efficiency.' Corning Display Technology related person in charge said, 'It is expected that the whole year In 2010, the company's related line logistics costs will be reduced by 5%-10%.'
If you have to rush for goods, take the railroad; have plenty of time and take the waterway. Different transportation channels can realize 'free combination', which is the 'multimodal transportation' of Orchard Port.
Multimodal transport tests the management level of logistics enterprises. In order to achieve a seamless connection between railway and water transportation, ports need to open up the context in terms of loading and unloading operations and logistics short transfers. In order to improve logistics efficiency, a series of intelligent methods such as container intelligent tally system, paperless bill of lading, intelligent gate, and iron-water intermodal transportation information platform have been put into use at Guoyuan Port. In addition, Guoyuan Port has realized road-port joint dispatch to ensure the rapid transit of combined iron and water transport and reduce the time that containers stay in the port.
Multimodal transport saves not only time, but also money. In May of this year, Guizhou Phosphate Chemical Group shipped a batch of phosphate fertilizer from Guizhou via railway to Guoyuan Port, reloaded via Guoyuan Port, and transported it down the river to Zhenjiang, Jiangsu. 'Compared with the previous railway transportation, the iron-water combined transport mode can save more than 20 yuan in logistics costs per ton, and save more than 20 million yuan in logistics costs throughout the year.' Nietzsche, the head of the multimodal transport department of the group's logistics company, told reporters.
Across the country, the multimodal logistics format is playing an increasing advantage. From January to April this year, the multimodal transport center of the China-Shanghai Cooperation Organization Local Economic and Trade Cooperation Demonstration Zone in Qingdao completed 145,000 TEU container operations, a year-on-year increase of 5%. In May, the Office of the Leading Group for Promoting the Construction of the 'One Belt and One Road' proposed to speed up the construction of port-to-port railways and improve supporting facilities for combined iron and water transportation... Logistics companies promote combined transportation operations, optimize management methods, and improve transportation timeliness. The flow of goods is becoming more accessible and transportation is becoming more efficient. (Reporter Chang Biluo Jin Bo)
