However, owing to the differences between China and the developed countries such as Europe, America, Japan, etc, it is hard to get satisfied result by copying others' experience and models mechanically. So it is important to digest, improve and absorb the achievement of foreign logistics theories and practices, master the general mechanism of logistics industry.
