Black Boxes on CRE
On April 2, the staff of Yiwu Meteorological Bureau delivered ten black boxes for meteorological monitoring to the person in charge of Yitong Europe Logistics Co., Ltd. The black boxes were produced to meet Yitong’s demand for meteorological support to facilitate commercial logistics and transportation, and will be installed on China Railway Express (CRE) trains. The two parties had extensive and in-depth communications on the technical development, upgrading, promotion, and application of the meteorological monitoring products.
By installing these black boxes on the CRE, the meteorological department can obtain data such as temperature, humidity, air pressure, and positioning, so as to achieve whole-process monitoring of the CRE. The data feedback from the black boxes will reflect the environment inside and outside the containers on the trains.
With the data of the weather of major cities along the CRE routes, as well as the characteristics and meteorological suitability of transported goods, the meteorological department can provide weather-related navigation for international logistics and provide prediction, early warning, and inquiry into relevant weather information.
