Weiqi Yan


Transportation logistics of wood is one of the important links of wood processing industry, and its high efficiency and low cost directly affect the survival of enterprises. Timber transportation and inventory are the two most important parts of its logistics cost. Based on the field investigation of Jingnan Town Processing Park and the analysis of its geographical location and existing industrial scale, this paper puts forward three constructive suggestions: use the combination of multimodal transportation and land and water transportation to reduce transportation costs, integrate transportation resources through third-party logistics outsourcing, and use material demand planning to optimize inventory.
