Logistics had become an important source of growth in China. Some part of this rapid logistics industrial development could be attributed to the industrial agglomeration in the country. Understanding logistics industry agglomeration and its driving forces is critical for the formulation of logistics industrial policy in China. Crucial to this process is the measurement of agglomeration. The paper used location quotient to analyze logistics industry agglomeration of the 31 provinces in China, and then contrasted with other industries. There are greater differences of agglomerate economies among different industries. High location quotient competencies are generally found in high location quotient industries that are vital for the region’s continued economic stability and growth.
