China News Service, July 15th (Reporter Chen Jing) With the gradual cancellation of the second-hand car restriction policy, the circulation environment of second-hand cars is improving, and the industry is accelerating to climb.
In an interview on the 15th, Zhang Yanwei, the COO of China's well-known used car auction platform-Tiantian Paiche, said that the value that used car e-commerce should best provide is the value of circulation.
It is reported that in recent years, the country has spared no effort to promote the circulation of second-hand cars.
This year, "removal of unreasonable restrictions on second-hand car transactions" was written into the "Government Work Report."
In June, the Ministry of Commerce, on the basis of clearly abolishing the restrictions on relocation of second-hand cars, piloted the implementation of cross-provincial registration of second-hand cars in 20 cities.
In this regard, Zhang Yanwei believes that it is an inevitable trend that inter-provincial communication will be fully implemented throughout the country.
At the just-concluded 2021 CUCA China Used Car Conference, Luo Lei, deputy secretary general of the China Automobile Dealers Association, pointed out that there is a lot of room for the development of second-hand car service entities, and second-hand car auctions are a blue ocean in the future.
It is reported that the 2021CUCA China Second-hand Car Conference with the theme of "Vientiane Beginning, Inventing the Future" brought together more than 1,000 car dealer representatives and industry experts across the country to deeply discuss the future trend of China's second-hand car industry.
In Zhang Yanwei's view, the used car auction platform has always grown with the entire industry.
The COO believes that only second-hand car e-commerce companies that can truly provide circulation value can capture the dividends of accelerated growth under the turmoil of second-hand car circulation across the country.
Zhang Yanwei told reporters that in car auctions every day, more than 70% of the transactions are cross-regional.
This industry insider bluntly said that for a long time in the past, some second-hand car e-commerce platforms hurriedly joined the crazy expansion before the commercial development path was really run through, ignoring whether their own model really worked. Ignore whether I can provide value to buyers and sellers.
At the same time, the epidemic and the cold winter of capital have also accelerated the survival of the fittest in the industry.
He bluntly said that the Matthew effect itself is also a process of self-iteration and upgrading of the industry.
"We should look at it rationally."
The latest "June car dealer inventory" survey data released by the China Automobile Dealers Association shows that the global shortage of chips and high-temperature holidays have made most dealers have insufficient inventory of best-selling models.
Under the prosperous consumption, many consumers have begun to focus on second-hand cars, and second-hand car transactions have ushered in a rise in volume and price.
Zhang Yanwei said that domestic second-hand car sources are mainly concentrated in first- and second-tier cities, but the main demand is in third-tier and lower cities and rural areas.
Inter-regional circulation restrictions directly make it difficult for second-hand cars to circulate across regions. People can only buy and sell locally. Those who want to sell can't sell good prices, and those who want to buy can't buy cheap and good-quality second-hand cars. Supply and demand are wrong. The contradiction of distribution is difficult to resolve.
Zhang Yanwei pointed out that in the second-hand car auction model, China's massive second-hand car buyers bid, and the higher the price is, the best way to help individual sellers achieve cross-regional premiums; at the same time, second-hand car auctions not only really sell high-quality second-hand cars to the whole country, but also help Second-hand car dealers continue to obtain car sources steadily and efficiently, promote their large-scale, professional development, and improve the service capabilities of the entire industry.
With the expansion of used car transaction radius, used car dealers, consumers and car sources spread all over the country, and the demand for whole car logistics in different places has doubled year by year.
Second-hand car dealers face challenges such as difficulty in matching transportation routes and high logistics costs.
The reporter learned that, based on the Internet-based automotive supply chain logistics service platform, logistics companies are exploring the integration of logistics enterprises and transportation resources, and the self-operated vehicle warehousing and distribution supervision center has enabled vehicle consignment and digital warehousing services to cover many administrative districts and counties across the country. Car dealers solve the terminal distribution problem of door-to-door delivery.
The reporter learned from the truck steward that the company is developing an intelligent truck-to-cargo matching platform. Based on big data algorithms, it realizes order splitting and consolidation, route planning, and automatic quotation, helping the dispatcher and the carrier logistics to quickly complete the matching, and greatly improving the efficiency of vehicle circulation. , To provide a more agile and more flexible network-wide support capability for the booming second-hand car circulation market.
