Coping with the COVID-19, logistics plays a very important role, but it also exposes many problems of emergency logistics. Through the analysis of the characteristics of emergency logistics in the process of epidemic prevention and control, it is found that the problems of emergency logistics are mainly manifested in the risk of chain break between emergency materials and production and living materials, the dilemma of socialized logistics, the lack of professional logistics enterprises, the lack of national emergency logistics management system, the low level of emergency logistics informatization, and the lack of grassroots emergency logistics management plan. Based on this, we should improve the emergency logistics system, build the emergency logistics information system and strengthen the application of emergency logistics technology to promote the construction of emergency logistics in China, so as to better respond to the unexpected social public crisis.
