At present, the deepening of globalization is pushing the global logistics system to accelerate adjustment and innovation. The global economic growth and trade focus is shifting from developed countries to developing countries, and infrastructure interconnection is also accelerating.

Innovation in the business environment and institutional mechanisms with the core of promoting competition and improving efficiency is the necessary foundation for the logistics industry to achieve innovative development, such as mechanism construction, policy support, and regulation reform.
