About this book

Introduction

This book is the sixth volume in a series entitled “Contemporary Logistics in China,” authored by researchers at the Logistics Center, Nankai University. In the spirit of the five preceding volumes, published annually in previous years, this book carries on the ideal of providing a systematic exposition on the development of logistics in China to the English-speaking community.  Specifically, this volume captures China’s logistics development at a crucial turning point. On the one hand, it echoes the new horizon advocated by the Government’s One-Belt-One-Road Initiative for global cooperation; on the other, it resonates with the new blueprint of implementing the main contents of the 13th Five-year Plan on logistics development. Subjects covered include the macro-factors pertaining to logistics development, region-specific plans, industry-wide transformation, globally oriented moves, and current hot topics. Expositions and analyses on these subjects are based on the latest available sources and statistical data.  As with the previous volumes, the ultimate aim of this book is to present a timely portrait of the rapid growth of China’s logistics market and the status of its logistics industry’s evolution.  In so doing, this book offers an in-depth analysis of the critical issues and dilemmas amid the ongoing, dynamic and multi-faceted development, and presents a valuable reference source for interested readers in the academic and professional fields.
