Abstract: With the development of global economy, the logistics industry is increasingly playing a greater role in economic development. In this paper, based on entropy method and factor analysis, an evaluation system is built from the aspects of politics, economy, society, transportation and resident consumption level to estimate the logistics levels of the cities in Wuhan city circle. The conclusion shows that the nine cities in Wuhan city circle have very different logistics levels and can be ranked from the highest to lowest as follows in terms of their logistics level: Wuhan, Huanggang, Xiaogan, Huangshi, Xianning, Ezhou, Tianmen, Xiantao, and Qianjiang.

Keywords: index system; logistics level; entropy weight; factor analysis; evaluation.
