Cainiao smart warehouse helps increase fruit prices

Cainiao Science and Technology went to the countryside to carry out large-scale applications in Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region and made substantial progress a few days ago. 14 prefecture-level cities in the autonomous region have successively opened Cainiao rural intelligent express stations and automated co-distribution centers. Guangxi Lingshan Fruit Industry Belt built a Cainiao intelligent production warehouse to help improve fruit quality and grade the fruit. The average price increased by 20-40%, helping fruit farmers increase income, and driving the revitalization of rural industries.

Although Lingshan is the famous "hometown of China's lychees", and has a long history of lychee planting, a public report shows that the lychee planting area of the county is 420,000 mu, and the planting area and output rank first in Guangxi. It is the second largest lychee production county in the country. However, the fruits were used by foreign merchants as raw materials in the past and were directly pulled to Guangdong and other places for processing, and then sold to the whole country, and even exported overseas because of the lack of localized industrial support. Lingshan fruit dealers revealed that the price of lychees in the field was almost 4-6 yuan/kg, and "most of the revenue is not kept in the local area."

In 2022, Cainiao built the first agricultural intelligent production warehouse in southwest China, in the Lingshan Fruit Industry Belt in Guangxi, in time for the arrival of the lychee season, realizing the integration of "picking, production, transportation and marketing" through digital and intelligent sorting, grading, processing, and sales. Judging from the overall sales this year, the lychees processed by intelligent sorting and grading have achieved standardized excellent products and good prices compared with the traditional lychee processing mode in the past. The sales price has increased by 20-40%, most of which becomes the actual income of fruit farmers.

Xiong Jian, head of Cainiao Village, said that Cainiao will gradually carry out an intelligent transformation of more than 1,000 county distribution centers across the country. In the next three years, the number of Cainiao express service stations in the village and town will reach 100,000, and 1 billion yuan of special funds will be invested in the intelligent transformation of rural service stations. Cainiao will also build 100 uplink production warehouses for agricultural products, and cooperate with Alibaba and other social resources to establish uplink sales channels for agricultural products to help agricultural producers sell their products to the whole country and even around the world.
