As one of modern service industry, the development of logistics industry needs the support of scientific theory. There is a close relationship between economy and logistics, so the relationship between them needs to be studied to make the logistics industry scientifically develop. This paper analyzes the characteristics and functions of logistics industry development in China, and then uses the method of grey incidence to study the relationship between logistics scale and related economic factors reflecting the logistics scale with freight turnover, analyzes the reasons for the rapid development of China’s logistics industry, and points out the future development direction of the logistics industry.
