Based on the panel data of 30 Chinese provinces from 2011-2019, the entropy value method and Tobit regression model are applied to study the impact of logistics industry agglomeration on green economic development. The results show that the impact of logistics industry agglomeration on green economic development shows a significant promotion effect; foreign direct investment, urbanization level and population density have a significant positive impact on green economic development; human capital and government expenditure have a more significant negative impact on green economic development.
