Ministry of Transport: Deepen the application of blockchain and other technologies in refrigerated containers

Today, the official website of the Ministry of Transport issued the ” Notice on Carrying out the Improvement of Reefer Container Port and Shipping Services ” (hereinafter referred to as the “Notice”).

Ministry of Transport: Deepen the application of blockchain and other technologies in refrigerated containers

Deploy and carry out refrigerated container port and shipping service improvement actions, actively promote the deep integration of new-generation information technologies such as blockchain and Internet of Things with cold chain logistics, further improve the quality of refrigerated container port and shipping services, and promote the high-quality development of cold chain logistics and transportation. To meet the needs of cold chain logistics and transportation and the needs of the people for a better life, we will serve to build a new development pattern.

The “Notice” pointed out that by the end of 2023, the port and shipping service capabilities of refrigerated containers based on blockchain and the Internet of Things will be significantly improved, and major shipping companies will add more than 18,000 TEUs of refrigerated containers for the Internet of Things; major coastal ports will add refrigerated containers. There are more than 6,000 container plugs ; the average processing time of refrigerated container port and shipping documents based on the application of blockchain and Internet of Things technology has been greatly reduced; the establishment of an electronic waybill for refrigerated container transportation has initially realized the effective connection, sharing and opening of road and water transportation system information, and combined transportation services The quality has improved significantly.

In addition, the Notice deploys five main tasks .

One is to promote the development of refrigerated containers based on the Internet of Things. Focusing on major reefer container shipping companies, promote the installation and application of IoT devices that integrate technologies such as sensing, wireless communication, and automatic positioning, and realize the automatic collection and transmission of information such as temperature and humidity of reefer containers, cooling machine working mode and power-on status, etc. Gradually realize the whole process of informationization and visualization of refrigerated containers and goods.

The second is to promote the electronic release of reefer containers based on blockchain. Focusing on international hub seaports and major refrigerated container shipping companies, promote the application of the port and shipping blockchain electronic cargo release platform, and the international hub seaport realizes that the average processing time of port and shipping documents for refrigerated container cargo has been shortened from 2 days to within 4 hours. Contact for handling, realize one-stop query of logistics information. Encourage other ports with conditions to connect with the blockchain electronic cargo release platform of international container liner companies, promote the electronicization of port and shipping operation documents, and gradually realize the electronic cargo release of ports.

The third is to improve the service quality of refrigerated container road and water intermodal transport. Encourage and promote refrigerated container shipping enterprises, road transportation enterprises, port enterprises, freight forwarders and other enterprises to rely on the blockchain electronic delivery platform to gradually carry out the logistics information on-chain business, develop and apply electronic waybills, and promote the realization of the temperature and humidity of the whole process of road and water transportation of refrigerated containers Real-time monitoring of information such as , location, etc., expand and improve the logistics service function, and improve the quality of the whole transportation service.

The fourth is to improve the storage and disposal capacity of refrigerated containers in ports. Focusing on the international hub seaport, promote the strengthening of the cold chain organization function of the port and station hub, increase the refrigerated container yard and socket and other refrigerated container supporting facilities and equipment, improve the port yard refrigerated container storage and power supply socket capacity, and promote the construction of supporting power supply infrastructure .

The fifth is to study and formulate relevant guidelines for refrigerated container transportation. The Ministry has studied and established standards and specifications for refrigerated container transportation and logistics focusing on equipment facilities, operating procedures, and information traceability, and has studied and formulated requirements for refrigerated container transportation temperature control and information services, as well as refrigerated container intelligent terminal technical guidelines.

At the same time, the ” decomposition table of refrigerated container port and shipping service improvement action goals ” was also released . Four shipping companies plan to add 18,500 TEU refrigerated container IoT devices, and seven port companies plan to add 6,100 plugs.

Finally, the “Notice” emphasizes that it is necessary to strengthen organizational leadership, guide and urge port and shipping enterprises to implement their goals and tasks; to increase policy guarantees, to actively coordinate policy support for the configuration of supporting power supply infrastructure in reefer container yards, and to connect the installation of Internet of Things equipment. The refrigerated containers of the trusted information platform will be released quickly, and the information support of the release on the chain will be provided.
