Recently, ITL 2017 (A Post-Graduate Programme in International Transport and Logistics Offered by World Maritime University in collaboration with Shanghai Maritime University) paid a successful visit to Yihai Jiali(YIJIA) Logistics company. The followings are reports from some students of this program.
After 40 minutes’ trip, we finally arrived YIJIA Logistics. YIJIA Logistics is invested by Singapore Fortune International Limited Group which mainly aims at grain and oil processing, warehousing, logistics, and the domestic and international trades as well.
Mr. Sheng, chairman of the board who has devoted himself into this company for 15 years gave an excellent speech to us. Through his speech we acknowledged that except providing logistics services for their own company, YIJIA also provides optimal logistics solution for other companies like NongFu spring, who benefit from large transportation costs saving by YIJIA’s service. YIJIA also find out that a big problem is about the distribution from large companies to smaller branches, so what she is doing now is to create a comprehensive logistic platform to do the B2B business. Their platform has attracted many enterprises to form into a same group despite many problems they may face. YIJIA regards this integration as a must in the future and definitely they have made a great step forward.
After the speech, Mr. Sheng welcomed all questions raised by us, we really had a hot discussion. And one of us were highly praised by him, we were also pleased to hear the comments he made to our class.
Then we made a tour to warehouses of the company. For the first time we had seen automatic warehousing in real life. Parameters like temperature, location, where to go, and what to move etc are controlled by computer center precisely, thus only 3 engineers are needed in there to be responsible for daily maintenance. And we also paid a visit to the company’s distribution center to see how it works. We did benefit a lot from this visiting.
Thanks to the golden opportunity provided by this program, which enabled us to see how those in the books can be applied into practice, and have the chance to talk with chairman of the board to share his experience both in past and in future. It also remains more consideration to us on how logistics will be changed in the future, and gave some lights on our own career choices.
Last Friday, we visited YIJIA Logistics and its automatic warehouse and distribution center. The chairman of the board introduced the structure and strategy of the group. Especially they are trying to have exploration in the field of logistics system and platform, which is a very brilliant idea. After that, we had a visit on the factory to see how the equipment works, and it has a complete and efficient procedure. The distribution center was also impressive to me. The principal told us some management techniques about the group.
A very nice visit to YIJIA Logistics. It will encourage us to spare no effort to study harder and consider the relationship between the theory and practice, which includes serval parts of the real logistics systems. Mr. Sheng’s speech is very clear and systematic. As a result, we all have learnt a lot from it. Real practice differs from the academic theory to some extent, while be same in some ways.
Today we visited YIJIA Logistics Ltd.，which is a specialized logistics company of Yihaijiali Groups set up in 2007. Mr.Sheng，the chairman of the board in YIJIA Logistics introduced the core competences of the company to us and explained an advanced logistics system they have been trying to build. According to Mr. Sheng's speech，we've learned that YIJIA Logistics focus on distribution of consumption goods, such as fast food in urban areas，which also has an improving warehouse management system. We've also learned 2 main kinds of storage racks，drive-in and crossbeam docks. The former could store up more goods and the later could allow more efficient access to goods.
this visit，we have
learnt the enterprising spirit from YIJIA Logistics，which
try to become a pioneer of new smart logistics system in China.
