Evaluation and Analysis: Development Trend of China’s Logistics Industry under Supply Chain Globalization Environments


First in this paper a systematic and comprehensive hybrid index evaluation system of regional logistics competitiveness is designed according to the characteristics of China’s regional logistics system under supply chain globalization envi-ronments, and systematic analysis and discussion of the connotation of the various factors in the index evaluation sys-tem are made. Then based on hierarchy analysis thought and fuzzy decision-making principles, the development trend of China’s regional logistics industry is assessed systematically and comprehensively. With the result of the above as-sessment, the key factors and the gradual evolution process of promoting regional logistics industry competitiveness under supply chain globalization environments are discussed. Also, in this paper it points out that enhancing the strength of urban logistic enterprises will promote the competitiveness of regional logistics industry. And the logistics competitiveness of a few major economic zones in China is discussed with conclusion that discrepancy exists in terms of China’s provincial capital city’s logistics development. At last, development strategies for regional logistics are put forward aimed at the west regions of China which have weak competitiveness in logistics industry.
