[photopress:it_dai_dingyi_1.jpg,full,alignright]We simply do not need the word, ‘informatization’ although it is too late as there are 8,768 references to it already on the Internet.
I think what it means is keep people informed within an industry using computers. I think.
The logistics industry has become a new growing point for national economy which is not before time because if China had a weakness it was logisitcs. In 2007 the logistics industry had its proportion in the added value of service industry raised from 17.1% in 2006 to 17.5%, and from 6.7% to 6.8% regarding to the proportion in gross domestic production (GDP).
Bit of a two edged sword here. If logistics had to be improved by that much it must have been in a pretty parlous state to begin with.
Its savior will be the IT industry working through technologies like RDIF which tells them what is where when and where it shoud go next. This speeds and simplifies the process and, more and more important, cuts down on the amount of fuel required to move stuff from place to place.
Dai Dingyi, Vice President of China Federation of Logistics & Purchasing (CFLP), and seen in our illustration (there is no known Welsh connection), said, ‘In the circumstance of the worldwide sharply raised oil price and the relative tight finished oil supply at home in 2007, the total logistics expenditure still keeps a stable increase, whose proportion in GDP is almost same as the one in the last year.’ He believes that: ‘one of the important factors is the enhanced overall logistic efficiency due to the application of information technology for logistics industry.’
Still, it would be wonderful if it could do it and not use that word ‘informatization.’
