The modern logistics industry is known as "the largest industry in the 21st century." With the sustained and rapid development of China's national economy, China's logistics has shown a rapid growth momentum. Especially in China, the construction of a conservation-oriented society and the promotion of economic and social transformation to high efficiency, high quality and high efficiency have created a good environment and favorable conditions for the rapid development of the logistics industry. Especially the development of Shanghai's logistics industry has always been in the leading position in the country. At present, the logistics industry is one of the four emerging pillar industries in Shanghai, which plays a vital role in the development of Shanghai's social economy, investment environment and manufacturing industry. However, regardless of scale, function, talent, structure and high-tech promotion, there is still a lot of room for development in the logistics industry across the country and Shanghai. The development of China's logistics industry faces both broad opportunities and severe challenges.
