Abstract: This paper describes domestic and international research results and proposes a method system of logistics park traffic impact analysis and organisation design optimisation. Firstly, the basis of logistics park traffic impact analysis is studied, project position and impact scope are analysed. Secondly, we forecast logistics park traffic demand and analyse the adaptability of road section and logistics park. Moreover, on the basis of these, the paper confirms the implemental principle of traffic organisation design optimisation, put forward logistics park traffic organisation design optimisation model based on multi-agent and corresponding algorithm based on evolutionary algorithm. Finally, it uses traffic simulation to simulate the traffic flow of logistics park and gives quantitative traffic impact assessment by visual animation, based on these, traffic organisation advices are put forward so that the traffic problems can be effectively resolved. This paper, by using the proposed method before, takes Zhengzhou National Arterial Highway Logistics Park for empirical studies, combines macro planning software TransCAD and micro traffic simulation platform VISSIM to demonstrate the feasibility and workability of the method, it get good results; this can offer the reference to logistics park planning and design.
