1. Introduction

Put forward the party's 18 "with Chinese characteristics a new path of industrialization, information, urbanization and agricultural modernization, to promote information and industrialization depth fusion", to carry out in the development of logistics industry, which is an important aspect to promote logistics information industry association, give full play to the logistics industry association communication logistics enterprises and government relations, improve the logistics companies and the government's functions. [1]

Logistics industry association is the bridge of the government and enterprises, can effectively promote the logistics industry standards, policies and laws and regulations of publishing and implementation work to promote; Is the back of the logistics enterprises, can provide enterprises with services, seeks the benefit for the enterprise. Is the platform of the logistics industry development, can provide the logistics personnel education and training, logistics, technical communication and information services, logistics information statistics, etc. [2] So, strengthening the construction of the logistics industry associations at all levels to promote the development of logistics industry in China, and promote healthy and rapid economic development in China.

2. Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei Association of Logistics Industry Information Development Situation

Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei logistics information platform construction industry association in the primary stage, showing a much and miscellaneous, general utility function is not high, not much support for the logistics industry to provide information consulting role; Or to organize economic zone, or in administrative organization, and for the development of the integration of the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region, association of Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei logistics industry faces a serious problem is contained industry coverage is too narrow and lack of social legitimacy. And social legitimacy is insufficient, is most of the logistics industry association from the state official system. Its member companies are generally not more than 40% of the total number of whole industry, mostly confined to the original department system, and the vast majority of state-owned enterprises. Narrow coverage, which means that the association can master enterprises and the insufficient information of the industry, is difficult to play to comprehensive coordination function. Hebei province XingTai logistics association, for example, XingTai engaged in logistics transportation, warehousing, distribution, shipping, transport, logistics information, such as enterprise unit composed of voluntary, away from direct participation in government departments.

The Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region logistics industry association in 92. Due to regional development and geographical location, the external environment, such as logistics related industry association in development is uneven, A site of Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei regional logistics information platform, a total of 73 related industries association, no site a total of 19 Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei logistics related industry association.

First for Beijing, it is in the center of political development, economic and geographical conditions have comparative advantages, the development of logistics industry in China is ahead and logistics industry association has the characteristics of large quantity, scale, wide role. [3] Beijing logistics industry association and more miscellaneous, many provincial logistics association (such as Hong Kong logistics association) have also set up in Beijing, is mainly engaged in the development of the national logistics, one of the better known association with China federation of logistics and purchasing, logistics society of China, etc. Tianjin is Combined with own port advantage, most predominantly port shipping association, such as Tianjin international freight forwarders association. The characteristics of the logistics industry in Hebei province association, presents the localization, some cities in Hebei province have a small logistics association, committed to the development of the local logistics, such as XingTai logistics association, Tangshan logistics association, etc. there are shown in the proportion of the logistics industry association of Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region (figure 1).

Figure 1. The Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei wing scale map regional logistics related industry association.

From Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region 92 association of logistics industry information development, a total of 53 in the Beijing area logistics industry association, and information platform built with 52. According to the nature of the logistics industry association and the services provided by the information platform and the function which can be divided into the following eight categories, respectively for comprehensive, ports and port, transportation, supplies, environmental protection, storage and material circulation, its proportion as shown in the figure below (figure 2).

Figure 2. Classification scale map of Beijing logistics industry association.

Tianjin logistics industry association (a total of 13, all have their own information platform, can be divided into comprehensive, transportation, ports, district and county class. There are classification ratios of logistics industry association as shown in the figure below (figure 3).

3. Association of Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei Logistics Information Platform Service Benefit

Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei logistics industry association is the main official website construction on information platform construction, only play the role of good website information exchange platform, can attract more members of an enterprise and logistics professionals to join in, better contribute to the development of China's logistics industry. [4] Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei service benefit information platform of logistics industry association has been highlighted gradually.

From the point of Beijing logistics association, always adhere to the tenet of service, with "small association and great development" development concept, to the government pays special attention to the industry development, the enterprise bigger and stronger to do a lot of work, achieved fruitful results, also made a positive contribution to promote the development of logistics industry in Beijing. By a public information platform to promote industry development, with the support of the Beijing business committee, in 2007, the Beijing logistics association has constructed the "Beijing logistics public information platform". Platform, made some achievements, won the provincial or ministerial scientific and technological progress second prize. At present, the platform has a certain social influence, has made the preliminary social effect. Platform to promote resources sharing, and improve the social logistics resource utilization; Realize the joint distribution, reduce vehicle empty, so as to ease traffic pressure, promote the development of low carbon logistics; Reduce the total logistics cost of society, to promote logistics will play a positive role in promoting industrial upgrading. [5]

Representative of Tianjin modern logistics association, was founded in 2012, its logistics information platform not only includes some countries planning, policy, and introduce some are developing the advanced logistics technology, logistics field, mining and cultivate professional logistics personnel, for the development of Tianjin import and export trade provides a good condition.

Hebei region, such as modern logistics association, Hebei province, and actively national policy. The timely release of information market information, science and technology information, government information and public information, etc., better in the service of logistics enterprises in Hebei province.

4. Logistics Industry Association Information Platform Construction Problems and Countermeasures

4.1. The Existing Problems

At present, there are all kinds of Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region logistics industry association, but can really play a role, can the industry development and the development of local economy, only very few can really satisfy the enterprise association, the main problems existing in the following aspects:

4.1.1. Industry Association Information System, Information Network Construction of the Good and Bad Are Intermingled

Information system as the basis of information platform construction of industry association, if the construction is bad, it is difficult to play to their role that enterprise and members are hard to come by service effect. From the logistics industry association survey of Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region, just a website construction platform, there are some industry association not build their own independent website, it is difficult to achieve smooth information exchange, not a very good use of network platform.

Information is a involving multidisciplinary, multiple departments, participation of the whole society, comprehensive and basic work, industry associations should strengthen the comprehensive coordination management, make the terminal, network, database, can produce source, flow, libraries, their respective economies of scale, and can show the whole of the perfect service. [9] To adhere to the principle of the rule of law, perfect system, standardize the management, advance in accordance with the law; To adhere to the principle of efficiency, improve the organization, strengthen the responsibility, efficiency, innovation mechanism. Combined with the government issued new rules, the logistics industry association has some adjustment of the system to make timely, accurate, establish and improve the security system, at the same time, some of the member enterprise feedback should pay enough attention, do not place in a timely manner to improve, make everything work stability and orderly.

4.2.4. Adhere to the High Efficiency Application, Solve the Problem of Application Level Is not High

Electronic business is bound to cause work style, the transformation of mode of production and way of life, to improve the work quality and efficiency, realize the business information, office automation, the key is to strengthen the application. [10] First of all, to promote business online office, constantly improve the carrier of portal features. Efforts to improve the administrative efficiency and service quality enhance the industry association management transparency, eventually driving function change. Second, to speed up the resources integration and sharing, sharing, gradual longitudinal resources integration and resource sharing in the system, also with the horizontal sharing of information resources exploitation, so as to improve the overall level of social and public services.
