The coastal economy has different levels of development and characteristics of resources. Only by adjusting measures to local conditions can resources be effectively allocated and sustainable economic development be realized. The port logistics park plays an important role in improving the function of the port, improving the organization level of port operations and expanding the radiation service capability of the port. At present, the concept of port as an important node in the logistics system has gradually attracted the attention of governments, industry and theory circles of various countries and has effectively promoted the development of modern port logistics. On the basis of port resources, relevant logistics enterprises and other institutions form a spatial agglomeration nearby, and gradually become a port logistics industry cluster. With the rapid development of China's coastal economy, the port logistics industry in coastal cities has developed rapidly, showing the phenomenon of industrial agglomeration. With the continuous development of port economy, the competition of port logistics has changed from the cost difference competition to the service difference competition. The logistics capability index reflects the key factors that affect the logistics enterprises to provide logistics services.
