Toplogis and Global Logistics & Commerce Council of Taiwan (GLCT) held the "Supply Chain and Logistics Cloud Platform Innovation Conference and GLCT North Branch Inauguration Conference" at Heyi Hotel in Taoyuan today. At the meeting, James, the CEO of Georgia Institute of Technology in Asia, was invited to share on the topic of "Innovative thinking of smart supply chain and logistics " and the representative from Gartner’s Singapore office share the practical application of smart operations through video. They both analyze the situation under the hood of the pandemic and share the key to the transformation of an enterprise during the pandemic.
GLCT said that according to the recent research, only "Track & Trace" in the international logistics services are obviously insufficient, and "reducing overall logistics costs" has become the primary factor of concern for both Shippers and the LSP. Toplogis has been focused on using technology as the means and service as the core competence to provide smart solutions for companies to manage complex global supply chains and international logistics issues, thus promoting the birth of "Taiwan's first intelligent logistics assistant Ms.Glory". At present, GLORY@Platform is Taiwan’s largest logistics cloud platform. More than 100 high-tech manufacturing industries and more than 2,000 international logistics companies use this platform to deliver goods to the world. Taiwan's industry is experiencing rapid technological advances on the one hand, and declining birthrates on the other hand impacting the manpower needs of enterprises. Both the corporates and logistics companies have had to face the huge impact of declining birthrates and advanced technology. It is important to provide companies with "technology as a means and service as the core competence" to solve complex supply chain and logistics problems and Toplogis has been focus on this area for long time.
In order to expand services to all levels, GLCT held the inauguration ceremony of the North Branch at the same day. GLCT hopes to deepen the services of logistics by connecting the general office and the three branches of North, Central and South to work together to move forward to a new era of smart logistics. President Su Longde led the North District President Peng Lizhen, Taichung Chapter President Li Mingxue, Kaohsiung Chapter Zhang Conglian, and the board of directors and supervisors to complete the ceremony. Through the connection of the headquarter with the North, Central, and South three districts, it provides comprehensive services for Taiwan’s industries and become the best logistics partner for the industry.

Taiwan occupies a hub position in East Asia, whether it is land, sea or air, and the Ministry of Transportation is now making every effort to develop "cross-border smart logistics". The forum is promoted by Taiwan International Ports Corporation, hoping to integrate e-commerce platforms ,smart warehouse and the entire logistics industry to make domestic transportation more fluent.
The double 11 shopping war is about to start. The logistics and warehouses of various home appliances are filled with goods, and the computer assists in accelerating the shipment. With the economic growth and the increasing demand of online shopping, the Ministry of Transport also held a "Cross-border New Logistics-Smart Omni-channel" symposium, hoping to combine the application of technology with logistics to make the logistics of goods more efficient.
Chunghwa Post's smart logistics park has joined forces with e-commerce companies to build it at a cost of 20 billion, introduce a number of automation equipment, industrial transformation and upgrading, upper and lower integration, and implementation of smart transportation.

Taoyuan Industry Big Future Trend Summit Forum
Taoyuan City Government Economic Development Bureau sponsored the "Taoyuan
Industry Big Future Trend Summit Forum" to create a new opportunity for Taoyuan
become a smart
airport. The agenda of "People and Logistics in the Era of Smart Airport"
three well-known logistics and transportation and information industries.
(from left to right) Mr. Bi Zhongwei, General Manager of Ubers International
Taiwan Branch, Ms. Peng Lizhen, CEO of Toplogis Co., Ltd., Chen Muzhen,
Transportation Research Institute and Master of Transportation Logistics,
University Doctors participated in the forum and Mr. You Wenxiang, Chairman of
Taiwan Global Operations Development Association,
served as the introduction host (right),
sharing the new trend of intelligent airport (ICT) traffic and logistics through
cloud and big data application analysis.
In recent years, major airports around the world have been actively developing to enhance their competitiveness. Taiwan’s neighboring airports are also actively investing resources in expanding software and hardware facilities and improving service quality to increase the airport’s capacity for passenger and logistics services. In this fierce international air transport market, Taoyuan International Airport must master its own SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats) to expand Taoyuan Airport’s economic advantages, create a larger air transport market, and drive the industrial development of Taoyuan City.
Based on this, the Economic Development Bureau of Taoyuan City Government held the "Taoyuan Industry Big Future Trend Summit Forum-Creating New Opportunities for Taoyuan to Achieve a Smart Airport" on October 20, inviting domestic and foreign companies in air transportation and airport operations, logistics management, supply chain management, and production. Experts and scholars of medical technology and information communication technology shared and discussed the development trend of Taoyuan's industry centered on Taoyuan Aviation City, making Taoyuan a leader in Taiwan's industrial development. Just as Taoyuan Mayor Zheng Wencan said at the opening: "In the Aviation City project, creating an airport economy is an important issue, which will bring about the development of animal logistics and the effect of industrial upgrading, and the future will also move towards the next generation of industries."
The industrial development of Taoyuan City occupies an important position and considerable output value in Taiwan's economic development. Just like, Mayor Zheng mentioned: "Taoyuan’s industrial output value is the highest in Taiwan for 12 consecutive years. The output value is twice that of Hsinchu. Taoyuan has a strong manufacturing base, such as automobiles, optoelectronics, biotechnology, chemicals, solar energy, optoelectronics and other industries. A complete industrial settlement is formed in Taoyuan. Taoyuan is also the logistics base of Taiwan. Air logistics accounts for 95% of Taiwan. Coupled with the "dual port effect" adjacent to Taipei Port, there are 1671 registered logistics companies in Taoyuan, an industry in Taoyuan City. The foundation is sufficient to support the aviation city plan. At the same time, "Taoyuan is also the largest wind power generation base. The airport economy will bring about logistics base effects and industrial production effects."
Based on these strong economic conditions and in line with future international industry development trends, Taoyuan City’s future industrial development plan is just like the Mayor Zheng said: "In the Aviation City project, Taoyuan will move towards the next generation of industries, including Logistics, biotechnology, cloud, solar photovoltaic, new energy, etc., in the future aviation city plan, there are 150 hectares of free trade zone and 500 hectares of production area. It is expected that the logistics industry will reach 2500, making it the largest logistics base in Taiwan. "
With the solid economic foundation, overall industrial future planning and implementation plan, Taoyuan has a great opportunity to become an international production and logistics base, as well as a cross-strait e-commerce logistics base. To achieve these visions and goals, it is not only necessary to enhance the international competitive advantage of Taoyuan Aviation City, but also to strategically alliance with neighboring airports. As the Deputy Director of Airport Operations of the Hong Kong Airport Authority said in his speech, the neighboring airport branch plans to increase connectivity Sex. Mr. Fei Hongjun, general manager of Taoyuan International Airport Co., Ltd., also mentioned in the [Innovative Business Opportunities of Hub Airports] Forum: "Smart airports are not reachable by a single airport, but require clusters." That is, to be close. The airport is integrated into an airport service supply chain. General Manager Fei believes that in the airport service supply chain, "logistics is the strength of Taoyuan International Airport."
The author participated in the [People and Logistics Flow in the Era of Smart Airports] forum. The host was Mr. You Wenxiang, Chairman of Taiwan Global Operations Development Association. The interviewers also included Ms. Peng Lizhen, CEO of Toplogis., and Ubisoft International Co., Ltd. Mr. Bi Zhongwei, general manager of Taiwan branch. In the introduction, Chairman Yu expressed his views on the theme of the forum. He believes that the improvement of the flow of people and logistics management efficiency "needs sensory equipment, including logistics operation technology, successful connection of information, etc., all need to rely on the cloud and big data. End-to-end analysis to solve what's happening on the front-end.” And, “The smooth and fast connection and communication between the Internet and the Internet, and the Internet between things to solve things, can be regarded as a smart airport.” Chairman Yu also Mentioned: In terms of logistics: "Transportation, warehousing, linkages between airports and free economic trade zones, customs clearance, and information sharing platforms are all key elements of smart logistics. With Taoyuan’s regional advantages, supplemented by the development of industrial clusters’ output value, Smart airports can provide a foundation for business model enhancement."
In the cross-talk forum, CEO Peng explained on 4PL’s point of view: “The cloud platform is a sharing economy model. Through cloud computing technology, it helps customers plan the way of delivery of goods. At the same time, it also helps customers solve after-sales service problems. Be able to know the cargo status and progress, and proactively report the cargo status to international customers.” CEO Peng also pays attention to the development of e-commerce, suggesting that “Taoyuan should incorporate e-commerce logistics into the future development, because e-commerce is highly profitable and the logistics industry is required. The Asia-Pacific e-commerce consumption power accounts for 44% of the world, so Taiwan’s logistics industry has great opportunity.” At the same time, she also suggested: “Logistics is not competitive without IT. Singapore incorporates logistics information and communications into national infrastructure projects. This type of construction is only effective if the government does it."
General Manager Bi explained the importance of air cargo tracking and timeliness, "UPS has 16 million pieces of cargo every day, and these cargoes can be tracked at any time on the Internet." Cargo tracking requires information system integration, and logistics operators must pay attention to information and the development of communication technology, because "information flow is very important, the logistics industry has exceeded the scope of transporting goods in the past, and the future development is unpredictable." In addition, he also put forward a suggestion: "Many industries in Taiwan are relocated overseas. How Taoyuan International Airport increase the attraction to be a transit airports is a big issue.” In terms of logistics costs and customer service, General Manager Bi believes: “Customers are becoming more and more concerned about transportation costs. As the customer’s supply chain becomes more developed, customers need a one-stop shopping service that can meet various needs at the same time to enhance their competitiveness." At present, big data-related technologies are developing rapidly. He also provided UPS experience for participants to refer to. "Big data can calculate the performance and effectiveness of different departments to help identify problems."
In the cross forum, the author also put forward his views from the academic perspective, "Taoyuan has more than 1,600 logistics companies, and Mayor Zheng mentioned that the aviation city project aims at 2,500. Amsterdam is the gateway between the Netherlands and Europe, with only There are 150 logistics companies, so when we set our target at 2500, we believe that the competitive advantage of Taoyuan Aviation City’s logistics services can be greatly improved.” At the same time, “from Singapore’s experience, Singapore’s pragmatic approach to logistics policies is a lesson for Taiwan." Generally speaking, logistics cooperates with the development of the industry, but I believe that in some cases, logistics can also drive the development of the industry. Take Singapore’s biotechnology industry as an example. “It’s logistics drives business flows. First, a logistics environment suitable for the development of biotechnology will be set, which will attract the world’s top ten biotechnology R&D centers to set up their Asian headquarters in Singapore. Taiwan used to ignoring the to develop supporting industries, the logistics industry really needs to be taken seriously."
In the current business environment, it is not the competition between enterprises, but the supply chains. The same applies to the planning and operation of smart airports. It is not the competition between the airport and the airport, but the competition between supply chains and airport service. Therefore, Taoyuan International Airport must strengthen its partnership with neighboring airports, and it should be able to play a key role in the airport service supply chain in the future.

However, there was no customers would like to be a lab rats at the beginning. Only the GIGABYTE was convinced to utilize this platform with a free trail in the first six months of the year. After a half a year, this platform helps the GIGABYTE to decrease the costs dramatically by 30% and the other clients- the MediaTek Inc. (a large company in Taiwan) used it when they know the outcome from the GIGABYTE.
Currently, this platform has many long-term leases from more than 100 listed companies and cooperates with over 1,000 logistic companies to offer the online service which contributes 10 million big data cloud. It also consequently helps enterprises to shorten the time of preparation by average 50% and reduce 30% of total logistic cost in average.
And now, this platform has been attracting various famous large-scale enterprises to invest and be its members of board of directors, such as the Evergreen Group, the SmartFinance Group and etc. As a result, this cloud platform with a new business model is becoming a mainstream.
A blessing/disaster in Disguise, to Find Business Opportunities in Crisis
The Toplogis Inc had almost closed by 2008 because of the financial crisis and Ms. Catherine Peng faced a lot of stress from her business and family. Nevertheless, she still believes this platform with a good business model will be successful. Then, she has observed a lot of business sectors started redundancy and it caused a lot of administrative problems, especially for the logistic industry. It became a new business opportunity form the financial crisis. The toplogis Inc promoted an outsourcing package to these sectors, which combines with automatic system of this platform and reduces the logistic process and operation. It added additional revenue from the outsourcing package and safely passed this financial crisis.
In 2017, the revenue of the Toplogis Inc were over 100 million and reached a milestone. Ms. Catherine Peng started to actively participate in Corporate Social Responsibility and invested new business for growing up the company. For example, supporting the TT MAKER co-working space establishment and coaching young entrepreneurs. Now, Ms. Catherine Peng not only extends the overseas market, but also looks for a new young talents as successors with new technology knowledge.

The CEO, Catherine Peng was invited to participate in the inaugural meeting of the 4G Mobile Business Application Service Alliance
In order to accelerate the popularization of 4G mobile business application services, the Executive Yuan has instructed the Small and Medium-sized Enterprise Division of the Ministry of Economic Affairs to be responsible for promoting 4G applications for small and medium-sized enterprises and to develop diverse and rich 4G mobile business application services. Yesterday, in addition to the announcement of the establishment of the 4G Mobile Business Application Service Alliance, the "4G Mobile Business Application Service Summit Forum" was held. Experts from industry, government, and academic gathered together to stimulate application design innovation for the future 4G mobile business application model.
When attending the forum, Zhang Shanzheng, vice president of the Executive Yuan, said that whether mobile applications can be implemented in 4G, the focus is on how to quickly expand the user group. The industry should consider where 4G is better than 3G when designing and applying it, and strengthen the application design in this area, especially the on the characteristics of 4G upload speed is better than the download speed. Zhang Shanzheng said that he was very happy to see that 30 industry players participated in the alliance. Toplogis is one of the industry representatives, and CEO Catherine Peng is the vice chairman of the alliance and the convener of the application group.
When attending the event yesterday, Executive Deputy Minister of the Ministry of Economic Affairs Shen Rongjin also encouraged the industry to design 4G mobile business applications that make users feel "inspired", and the establishment of the alliance is a good start. In his speech, Zhao Wenlong, president of the 4G Mobile Business Application Service Alliance, said that since the advent of the Apple iPhone in 2007, the traditional business model has undergone major changes, the line between manufacturing and service industries have become increasingly blurred, and Internet, cloud, and mobile applications have become the major business models and important applications.
Zhao Wenlong used his experience working in the media industry as an example. The New York Times issued a report in March last year and pointed out that the future innovation lies in the digital innovation. However, Zhao Wenlong also reminded companies that it is not the establishment of a website and the use of the Internet to represent digital innovation. It is to abandon the old mindset and integrate digital mindset with the future development of the enterprise to find business opportunities for survival in the future.

China Times-low cost and high efficiency to help companies go international
Toplogis has been operating cloud services for 10 years and is currently the largest supply chain and logistics cloud platform company in Taiwan. Catherine Peng, CEO of Toplogis, said that the emergence of 4G is like a highway for small and medium-sized enterprises to speed up creating value-added services. On the basis of the high way, enterprises can use less cost and enhance efficiency.
In the future 4G era, no matter what size of the company all will be able to stand out internationally in the future, and related value-added services and applications are also area that small-medium enterprise(SME) can play.
She cited two cases of foreign industry players. A Japanese beverage company launched an iButterfly campaign using a mobile app. The app provides different butterflies from all over Japan. As long as you download the app, you can know what butterflies are nearby. When the consumer’s location is at the right latitude and longitude, beautiful butterflies will appear in the app, and consumers can save the butterflies. If you accumulate the butterflies to a certain level, you can exchange butterflies for drinks. All of the children are enthusiastic in finding the butterflies for a while, and the company is able to increase its revenue by 20% to 30%.
This example shows that not only do companies make money, but consumers are also happy. In the future 4G era, we will see more mobile APP marketing applications.
Another example is the German car dealer mini cooper, which also increased its sales by 108% through online marketing. The company uses a map app to tell consumers that there is a mini cooper nearby. When consumers find it, they have to run fast, because if there are people around 50 meters, then they can take the car away. If you can keep this car for a week, you can get a mini cooper.
Large companies have always had a lot of budget for marketing, and SMEs really need an environment like the 4G era to do marketing. After the opening of the 4G highway, there will be many changes. Small and medium-sized enterprises should study the application of 4G and realize their marketing ideas.
In the case of logistics, the logistics company Toplogis has cooperated with Chunghwa Telecom Research Institute 10 years ago to develop Taiwanese logistics special vehicles, but in the future 4G era, logistics companies can do more things, for example, proof of delivery can be immediately sent back to the company, etc. After the logistics driver delivers the goods, the QR Code of the product serial number can also be scanned and sent back to the company for archiving. The customer's relevant information can be recorded and transmitted in the first time. Therefore, 4G and APP can solve problems that could not be solved in the past.
