Six methods for measuring the value added of the regional logistics industry are proposed, and the value added of the logistics industry in Quanzhou is calculated using the statistical data from 2013 to 2017. The calculation found that the value-added of the transportation industry, the warehousing industry, the postal industry, and the wholesale and retail industry was added in a certain proportion, the value-added of the logistics industry in Quanzhou was more accurate.Combining the current status of the logistics industry in Quanzhou, it is suggested that logistics companies provide value-added services, integrate logistics industry resources, accelerate the development of terminal logistics, and improve the logistics statistics system for cargo owners will help increase the added value of the logistics industry.
