Based on port-related industries with information technology as the support and set optimization of port resources integration as the goal to develop a port comprehensive service system covering all aspects of the characteristics of logistics industry chain. Port Logistics is a special form of integrated logistics system and, as an irreplaceable important node in the process of logistics, completes basic logistics services and derived value-added services in the whole supply chain logistics system.

That is, to build the concept of big logistics, relying on port to construct allocation center, distribution center, circulation processing center, etc., providing container storage, handling, packaging, transportation, processing, distribution, loading/unloading, information processing and a series of value-added services to enabled the port become the backbone of connecting land hinterland and sea hinterland and complete partial value-added logistics services at hub and ensure that the goods are to be delivered to the next level of distribution center or the end user in the most economical, efficient, accurate and safe manner. Therefore, the provision of comprehensive and efficient logistics services is the major development trend of port logistics and an important factor for modern ports to build international competitiveness.
