Abstract

The logistics industry plays a vital role in the global economy, managing the flow of goods, information and services. The frequent occurrence of black swan events such as the new coronavirus epidemic in 2020 and the Russia-Ukraine conflict in 2022 has intensified the risks of the logistics industry. On the one hand, by studying the current risks faced by the logistics industry, this paper puts forward corresponding suggestions for the risks faced by the logistics industry. For example, the logistics industry can ensure the security of goods and information by utilizing cutting-edge technologies, adopting forward-looking risk management methods, and promoting cooperation with stakeholders, so that logistics companies can enhance their flexibility and optimize performance. And navigate a dynamic business environment. By establishing effective governance mechanisms and regular reviews, logistics companies can improve the strength and agility of their supply chains, effectively manage risks, and navigate the dynamic business environment. On the other hand, through the financial analysis of several representative companies in the logistics industry, this paper believes that the logistics industry has profitability at present and still has great growth potential in the future. The competition in the industry is relatively fierce, and the logistics industry market needs to be further subdivided.
