In the background of economic globalization, trade among countries and regions is increasingly frequent, so the importance of the logistics becomes obvious. At the same time, the developmental model of the Bay Area economy based on geographical advantages and industrial clusters has been widely adopted in the developed economic regions of the world. Probing deeply into economic phenomena, this paper takes Shenzhen as an example to explore the complementary relationship of the developmental model of Bay Area economy, the logistics industry and regional economic development. First of all, based on the theory of logistics integration, we define the relevance of its connotation and conditions of formation to the regional economy. Then, based on the development of the logistics industry in the Shenzhen Bay Area, we discuss the developmental path of Shenzhen to further enhance the regional economic level through logistics integration.
