Under the background of "Internet +", the emergence of fresh food e-commerce has brought a new business model. The fresh food e-commerce market is developing rapidly and is known as a blue ocean with development potential.
However, under such a prospect, the new retail model still faces many challenges.
What are the challenges faced by fresh food e-commerce?
High logistics cost
The traditional fresh food industry still generally adopts the original refrigeration method of "chilling and ice cubes", using normal temperature vehicles as the means of transportation, the preservation time is 2-3 days, and the transportation loss is large and the efficiency is low.
Large-scale fresh food e-commerce companies use self-built cold chain logistics and invest huge amounts of money to build an omni-channel cold chain logistics system. Small and medium-sized fresh food e-commerce companies mostly rely on third-party logistics, adopting the inefficient method of "ordinary logistics + express line".
Warehousing resources are in short supply
At present, my country's fresh warehousing resources are mainly concentrated in agricultural product wholesale markets, agricultural product logistics parks and agricultural product logistics centers.
The overall warehousing level is low, the quantity and quality of warehousing are small, and there is a big gap between management methods and warehousing facilities and the growing market demand.
Supply chain instability
The core competitiveness of fresh food e-commerce lies in the product itself, and having a stable supply chain is the top priority of fresh food e-commerce. The reason is that due to the unstable purchase quantity and product types of fresh food e-commerce, the complex product categories are in conflict with the small-scale demand, and the huge output of the fresh food market needs huge demand to digest, and the intermediate link depends on the scale. To reduce the unit transportation cost and loss cost.
Strong competition in the traditional agricultural wholesale market
The traditional farm batch market has many years of industry foundation and strong regional advantages. The agricultural market is the central link in controlling domestic fresh food procurement, transshipment and distribution, and plays the functions of price formation, commodity distribution, information transmission, and service provision. It has huge industry resources and internal information, and has many years of experience in spot trading of agricultural products.
