This paper sets up the systematic model about the ideal macroscopic factors index that influences the core competence of district logistics industry development based on the reference of foreign and Chinese researches. Thereon, this paper objectively established the indexes system to evaluate the core competence of the logistics industry development in Shandong peninsula city group. Through the compositor and ranking demarcation of the comprehensive evaluation on the core competence of logistics industry development in Shandong peninsula city group which includes 8 cities, and through the comparison of core competence of the logistics industry development on the related five eastern littoral city groups and the analyses on the influencing factors, this paper has proved up the main and subordinate factors that influences the core competence of the logistics industry development in Shandong peninsula city group and drawn a lot of conclusions. The first conclusion is that in order to build and promote the core competition of regional logistics, the key point is to enhance the regional economic strength, to improve logistics enterprise competence and to strengthen science and technology competence of logistics industry. The other conclusion is that with the increasing core competence of regional logistics, it can get lower logistics cost and higher GDP caused by unit logistics cost during the certain period. At last, it puts forward some suggestions which can provide a science guidance for the development of core competence in logistics industry of Shandong peninsula city group.
