There are five Northwestern provinces of China are located along the Silk Road Economic Belt, so it is of great significance to study the development level of logistics industry in this area. At the start of this article, we define the concept of logistics and logistics industry, and then we use logistics efficiency as an indicator to measure the development of the logistics industry in the five Northwestern provinces. With three input index and three output index, as well as the super efficiency DEA model, efficiency score of the logistics industry of the five provinces from 2007-2016 is calculated. The results show that the five provinces' logistics industry efficiency changes similarly every year, and as a whole, it changes with the macro economy of China. The logistics industry in Ningxia has the highest efficiency, and Gansu has experienced a remarkable decline in the past 10 years, the efficiency of Shaanxi, Xinjiang and Qinghai are quite stable and consistent.
