More and more social participants are involved in logistics network, making it growingly complicated. This paper puts forward supernetwork research approach, builds a three-layer logistics supernetwork model of supplier, distributor and consumer, sets maximum profits as objective, expresses market behaviors of decision makers of supernetwork model with income and fee functions, builds objective function, discusses conditions of balance in logistics network enterprises, and finally has case study of Amazon Xi’an operation center E-commerce logistics.
