Alibaba’s agricultural product digital circulation network

Hou Yi said that Ali hopes that through a complete supply chain system and a complete commodity standardization system, China’s agriculture and agricultural products will be upgraded to one New heights, this is what is being done now.

The second is to realize agricultural financial services, including agricultural supply chain finance and agricultural insurance. Because most farmers lack liquidity, Ali reimburses their agricultural products on the one hand, and provides supply chain services, including insurance services for bad weather. The sales are guaranteed by Ali. This business is currently under active preparation.

The third is to actively prepare for the digitization of the agricultural planting process and the support of the entire commodity in the planting process.

Digital agriculture and Hema horses have achieved sales, and the entire Ali ecological sector is linked

During the epidemic, many domestic institutions or famous enterprises are in trouble and Hema It is still accelerating its layout. At present, Hema has more than 220 stores nationwide, forming a new retail grid covering over 40 million people in 23 provinces and cities. Judging from the big chess game of Ali Agriculture, Hema is the most important terminal for consumers.

Hema is the “vanguard” of Alibaba’s new retail deployment. In the current combination of smart agriculture and smart fresh food, Hema serves as an offline consumption scenario and is responsible for the most basic and high-frequency consumer products in fresh food. For Hema, positioning”delicious life” requires digital and technological drive to provide consumers with better community-based services, and product quality must be guaranteed and traceable.

Taking Gannan navel orange as an example, the best commodities will be selected to enter the entire Hema sales system, but for most relatively ordinary commodities, digital agriculture will undertake its sales tasks. Digital agriculture is a whole with Hema. Digital agriculture is responsible for the construction, planning and operation of Hema Village, and Hema itself is responsible for the sale of some core commodities in Hema Village of Digital Agriculture. In addition, Hema can endorse agricultural products. Even if some agricultural products are not well-sold or have a backlog due to seasonal changes, they will be quickly sold through self-operated channels such as Hema.

Including the establishment of the Hema nationwide cold chain logistics network system and cold chain transportation system, it can also support the development of digital agriculture in the country.

Digital agriculture has truly achieved linkage with the entire business ecological sector of Ali. At the technical level, Ali’s technical advantages in cloud computing, AI, IoT, etc. can support the entire agricultural infrastructure; at the payment level, relying on the supply chain finance provided by Ant Financial and Alipay, as well as insurance and security in payment Stable; at the logistics level, Cainiao Logistics provides the entire third-party inter-line transportation and the entire express support.

Due to the blockade of the new market and the removal of salmon, seafood in many places has become unsaleable, imported products are completely unsaleable, and domestic prices have dropped to three points. One or even half of them have caused great losses to seafood operators. During the Dragon Boat Festival, Hema launched a “rescue of domestically produced seafood” campaign, doubling sales by halving the price, fully proving the market power of seafood products. Hou Yi said that as long as there is demand from the common people, Hema will use digital capabilities to sell healthy and hygienic products to consumers.

The “Fruit Shuttle” is opened in Yunnan and is shipped to Beijing and Shanghai every day

From flowers to Matsutake, Yunnan has been working closely with Ali to open Taobao Searching for love to help farmers, Yunnan has two categories of flowers and fruits, because of its unique geographical location has inherent advantages. Yunnan’s agricultural products have always been favored by the country, especially Beijing and Shanghai white-collar workers. Taking flowers as an example, consumers in Beijing and Shanghai have stronger purchasing power and are more willing to invest in the lifestyle brought by flowers.

Based on the demand of first-tier cities for Yunnan’s agricultural products, Ali has opened regular buses to ensure that high-quality fruits in Yunnan can be supplied and sold to Beijing and Shanghai through the cold chain. The other is flowers. Hema’s current sales volume of flowers is already huge. It turns out that it is still going through a third party. This year, it has opened its own shuttle full-length cold chain to send flowers to Shanghai and Beijing. Since Yunnan has good fruit supply all year round, it is the most important hub node in the entire Chinese agricultural sector. Alibaba will also plan to build a larger warehouse in Yunnan this year to ensure that agricultural products throughout Yunnan quickly enter the national market.

Efficient will not let farmers lose their jobs, production warehouses provide jobs

As my country’s primary industry, agriculture is the foundation of the economy. my country has always been a big agricultural country, but it is not a strong agricultural country. There are many constraints in agriculture, such as a downturn in the market, low prices for agricultural products, high labor costs, and the impact of natural disasters. Farmers affected by the above restrictions have difficulty in ensuring high-quality crops every year on crops. Once they catch up with natural disasters, they are more likely to lose their grains or produce large amounts of agricultural products.

This sudden epidemic has caused a large number of Guangxi agricultural products to be unsaleable, including passion fruit, fertile orange, and sugar orange. Alibaba exerts its own advantages to practice corporate responsibility, urgently launching the”Love to Help Agriculture” plan, converging the power of the digital economy, solving key issues such as logistics, transportation and sales channels in a short time, and opening up the”line of direct supply of agricultural products from the country of origin to the country” Online and offline dedicated line”.
