not long ago, every orchard was confirmed under its line of nearly a thousand stores have been closed, then, was living under the fresh O2O project "originally convenience also is offline, and a fresh and fresh rice China largest chain enterprises have recently reached a cooperation in baiguoyuan.
in fact, fresh electricity supplier to this step, the first step in the capital calm down. Entrepreneurs soon find financing increasingly difficult, they kept crying, by burning the money in exchange for market size VC. On the other hand, in the performance of financing data is poor, hopeless, they either live frugally, or choose to close down or heating.
it is worth noting that almost all fresh O2O platform giving yourself a bunch of live: the source of direct mining, store expansion, lightning distribution, financing to fund not only spent training habits of consumers, a lot of hit on the scale of expansion, but almost no echo, with little success.
there are indications that: in the past few years has been constantly optimistic about the capital, countless entrepreneurs to join in the fresh electricity supplier O2O fast survive it?

Once the category increased, fresh platform and can not guarantee the sales of each product, and the order does not come, there is no bargaining nature of purchasing power.
secondly, the logistics cost from the source to the warehouse is not a small expenditure. O2O efficient, in order to quickly send the goods to consumers, a large number of points in each platform will spread to the city, a plurality of storage source products transported to each city (stores), to realize the reasonable allocation between storage (stores), these are not a short duration of time can be solved.
in addition to the construction of warehousing, cold chain logistics is also a major construction projects. Business School of The University of Nottingham Ningbo, this study shows that "to perishable products storage and does not have any infectious effect > at the lowest cost
