The National Development and Reform Commission issued another increase in oil prices on the 7th. Diesel oil rose by 400 yuan per ton, and the price per liter reached seven, three and two, a record high. Due to rising costs and constant freight rates, it is becoming increasingly difficult for logistics companies to do business. Some drivers even intend to sell their cars and switch to other businesses.
In the morning, the reporter came to a large logistics market in an island city located in Licang District. I saw that only a dozen trucks were parked in the huge freight yard, and the on-site dispatch was not thriving. Occasionally, vehicles entered and exited. Master Wang is an old driver who has run transportation for more than ten years. He said that it has become more and more difficult to make money in transportation in the past two years. He calculated for the reporter, this time the price of oil increased, diesel rose by thirty cents per liter. In this way, he had to work 600 kilometers back and forth from Qingdao to Linyi, and the varnish fee would cost more than 70 yuan.

The cost has increased, but the freight rate has not changed. This time the rise in oil prices has increased the proportion of enterprises to digest themselves, and the profits of the logistics industry have been further squeezed. Master Wang said that in the past, there were more than forty vehicles in this freight yard running only the Linyi route, and now there are only five or six.

Compared with the short-distance in the province, the impact of rising oil prices on long-distance lines is more obvious. Master Wei runs the Qingdao-Beijing route, and he apparently feels that costs have increased a lot recently.

Master Wei said that if we now travel to Beijing, we can save five to six hundred dollars by digging away for oil, bridge and labor costs. If you arrive in Beijing, you will be able to return the goods on the same day and return it slightly better. But in fact, people often have to wait for several days to get together a cart.
Master Wei, a big cargo driver (if you do n’t come back, live there for a day or two. Parking is one night and forty, and the cheapest accommodation is twenty, okay? At least sixty, one day for meals, one day is not six or seven Ten dollars? How much is this? This is more than a hundred.)
Originally running long-distance transportation was to earn hard money, but now it is difficult to make money, Master Wei intends to simply sell the car and change careers.

It is understood that Island City has hundreds of large and small logistics companies. With the repeated increase in oil prices and the expectation of continued price increases, the transportation costs of logistics companies will continue to increase, which will likely bring a reshuffle of the logistics industry. If the freight rate still does not increase, a large number of small logistics companies without their own transportation fleet will be gradually eliminated.
