In the current fresh agricultural product consumption market, consumers' demand for fresh agricultural products tends to be diversified and personalized, and the cold chain logistics and distribution of fresh agricultural products are more stringent. This article mainly discusses the joint distribution and path optimization of 5G networked cold chain logistics of fresh agricultural products. Combining the advantages of 5G Internet of Things technology and the characteristics of fresh agricultural product, this paper proposes a fuzzy time window function, customer satisfaction function, loss function of fresh agricultural products, and establishes a path optimization model. First, analyze the cold chain distribution system of fresh agricultural products, find unreasonable aspects, and then put forward relevant suggestions to establish a path optimization model of agricultural products cold chain logistics distribution considering the cooling cost in the soft time window of the bicycle yard with non-full load. The amount, the load capacity of the vehicle, and the time window requirements are used as constraints. By using the CSO algorithm to solve the model, the cold chain distribution path of fresh agricultural products is optimized. The feasible optimization measures and schemes for the logistics distribution of agricultural products are obtained, and the distribution routes before and after optimization are compared, and the economic benefit level of the optimized route is obtained to a certain extent. It can be seen from the table that 75% of customers are very satisfied with this new type of freight transportation. It can be seen that the model has certain practical significance.
