China external logistics reached a total value of RMB 48 trillion in 2005 with a yr-on-yr growth of 25.2%, which was a little lower than the previous year but still remained a rapid increase. Structurally, as the industrial product logistics developed fastest, naturally it took the largest proportion in total value of the external logistics; whereas the agricultural product logistics increased slowest, and its proportion was rather small. 

The total value of China external logistics amounted to RMB 26.8 trillion in the first half of 2006, rising 15.3% compared to the 1st half of 2005 (calculated at comparable price, hereafter the same in this paragraph) , but its growth rate declined by 1%, which was mainly caused by decreasing growth rate of industrial product logistics; The total value of industrial product logistics was RMB 23.4 trillion, up 15.6% compared to the 1st half of 2005, but its growth rate declined by 1.2%; the total value of import logistics was RMB 2.95 trillion, up 14.2% compared to the 1st half of 2005, and its growth rate increased by 0.2%; The total value of agricultural product logistics reached RMB 461.5 billion, growing 5.1% compared to the 1st half of 2005, its growth arte remained almost the same as the 1st half of 2005.

The total expense of China external logistics was RMB 1678.6 billion in the first half of 2006, rising 14.7% compared to the 1st half of 2005 (calculated at current price, hereafter the same in this paragraph), and its growth rate increased by 1.2%. It was mainly because of the sharp rise of energy cost that caused the common rise of transportation fee. However, the ratio of the total expense of external logistics to GDP continued to drop from 18.6% in 2005 to 18.4% in the first half of 2006, down by 0.2%.

From the view of total logistics expense structure, in the first half of 2006, transport cost was RMB 932.9 billion, rising 12.9% compared to the 1st half of 2005, and its growth rate up 0.8 by 0.8%, which maintained almost the same as compared to the 1st half of 2005 with a proportion of 55.6% to the total expense. The storage cost was RMB 531.4 billion, rising 18.6% compared to the 1st half of 2005, and its growth rate ascending by 2.4%, the storage cost shared 31.7% of the total expense, ascending by 1.2% compared to the 1st half of 2005. Management cost RMB 214.4 billion, rising 13.2% compared to the 1st half of 2005, and its groth rate increased by 0.2%, moreover, it shared 12.8% of the total expense, but the proportion declined by 0.1% compare to the 1st half of 2005.

Ratio of Total Logistics Expenditure to GDP since 1991 (%)


The market scale of China third-party logistics in 2005 exceeded RMB 100 billion, rising about 30% compared to the previous year. More and more global logistics corporations began to establish bases or distribution centers in Asia Pacific, such as UPS, FedEx, DHL, TNT, Exel, APL, BAX, Maersk, and SchenKer etc. As for the total revenue of Asia Pacific's third-party logistics market in 2003, China accounted for 40%, Japan and Australia accounted for 18% respectively, India accounted for 9% and the other countries accounted for 15%. It is forecasted by the end of 2006, China will account for 38%, Japan and Australia for 14% respectively, India for 12% and the other countries for 22%.

Meanwhile, due to the rising price of petroleum and the increasing investment in facility and technology, the operation cost of logistics enterprises will increase dramatically; on the other hand, the intensive competition led to the common decrease of logistics service charges(price war), therefore, the profit margin of the TPL market decreased universally in 2005. The services of the logistics enterprises become more and more professional in order to improve their profitability and competitiveness. Therefore the TPL market is segmented continuously according to industries, regions and products.

By 2006, about 12% of logistics and storage & transport companies in China have a storage area of 10,000 m2 or less; 40% have a storage area between 10,000 to 50,000 m2, 22% have a storage area between 50,000 and 100,000 m2 and 26% have a storage area of 100,000 m2 or more.

There are about 16,000 logistics companies with an industrial output value of more than RMB 39 billion in China. It is forecasted that the output value will reach RMB 1.2 trillion by 2010. The huge market has attracted many freight transportation giants to join in. China logistics industry will maintain the rapid growth in the following several years. The promising logistics market in China will provide the investors with great opportunities.
