2. Logistics Base

National standard "logistics term" (GB/T18354-2006), explaining "logistics base" concept as follows: logistics base is a very large logistics node, its intensive function is very strong, its comprehensive function is very strong, it is the product of a few small intensive integration of logistics node; And common intersection of different logistics routes. Logistics base is one or more of the logistics center and distribution center focused on the space layout of the site, and have a certain scale and the comprehensive service functions of logistics rally point. It faces the society to provide professional services, logistics distribution of urban or regional commercial circulation with a backbone role, logistics base should have such characteristics: comprehensive intensive, independent and professional, and public commonweal.

Beijing vigorously develop the logistics base, first of all, can promote regional economic development, the development of the logistics base and construction, will encourage the generation of new economic growth point, improve the logistics environment, cultivate logistics industry, thus have radiation effects on regional economy and cluster effect; Secondly, it can promote the development of the logistics industry, logistics base can integrate the existing resources to form the logistics industry in the process of development, and at the same time, the logistics base for existing enterprises provide a good space for development, to help their healthy development; Third, it can optimize the urban structure and environment, through to the logistics base, scientific planning and site selection, not only can improve traffic conditions, can improve the urban land structure [1].

3. Beijing Tongzhou Logistics Base of SWOT Analysis

3.1. Beijing Tongzhou Logistics Base Introduction

Beijing Tongzhou logistics base was established by the Beijing municipal government in January 22, 2002, formally approved as the establishment of city development zone. Meanwhile, it is one of the three large logistics base in Beijing, which confirmed by Beijing Business Logistics development at the "tenth five-year plan", planning area of 5.04 square kilometers. Base collection of modern logistics, inland port, circulation processing functions into an organic whole, is to adapt to the modern international metropolis, the capital of functional infrastructure, radiation link Bohai (China) sea area and the national important transport hub, in and out of the distribution of goods to Beijing, and the large manufacturers in the Bohai sea area, the procurement and distribution logistics platform, located in the road - shipping international freight hub type logistics base [2].

Beijing Tongzhou logistics base is located in the southeast of Beijing, Beijing is the heart of internal and external transportation hub, mainly to undertake by sea and the Bohai sea region of Beijing international and domestic shipping logistics functions, key services in Beijing southeast of JingJinTang (Beijing-Tianjin-Tangshan) economy development belt, serve as well economic technique development zone, is a major hub of Beijing for inbound or outbound goods [3]. JingJinTang expressway and Beijing six loop at the intersection, and with the Beijing-Shenyang, JingHa, JingKai expressway, zone bit and traffic advantages is outstanding, has provided a broad space for development of modern logistics industry. Location as shown in the Figure 1.

Beijing Tongzhou logistics base relys on Beijing's industrial advantages, talent advantage, information advantage, build a logistics information platform, building modern logistics base. Base infrastructure adhere to a high starting point, standardization, scale, networking, internationalization of standards development and construction, will implement the "ten connection and one leveling", for the development of the logistics enterprises to build the international first-class platform [4]. Logistics base development and construction, there have been many companies into a base, build the good environment for the development of logistics industry, formed the modern logistics technology, information, equipment, personnel, management, resources, customer accumulative effect, promote the socialization of the logistics industry, modern, intensive and professional development, makes the modern logistics enterprises there is a sustained, rapid and healthy development depends on the carrier.

3.2. SWOT Analysis

SWOT analysis (also called TOWS analysis, dawes matrix) is situational analysis, in the early 1980s, proposed by Wally, the professor of management at the university of San Francisco, is often used to make enterprise strategy, competitor analysis and so on occasion [5].

The so-called SWOT analysis, based on internal and external competition environment and competition under the condition of situational analysis, is closely related to the object of study of various main internal strengths, weaknesses and external opportunities and threats, and so on, through the investigation list, and according to the matrix form, and then use the thought of system analysis, the various factors each other match analysis, from which a series of corresponding conclusions, and the conclusion is usually a certain decision-making. S (strengths), W (weaknesses) is the internal factor, O (opportunities), T (threats) is the external factors. According to the enterprise competition strategy complete concept, strategy should be a enterprise "can do" (that is, the organization's strengths and weaknesses) and "may do" (environment opportunities and threats) between organic combination [6].

3.3. Beijing Tongzhou Logistics Base of SWOT Analysis

3.3.1. Economical Environment Analysis

Beijing's function orientation is weakening economic center, continuously in adjustment of industrial structure, but in Beijing as an international metropolis, its economic environment influence is very big still. Table 1 is the fiscal revenue of Beijing Tongzhou district in 2012 and 2011, also the tax of Tongzhou logistics base and the proportion of comprehensive comparison table. What we can intuitively see from table is Tongzhou logistics base tax value of Tongzhou district presents a tendency of increasing financial income proportion, year-on-year growth of 37.55%; Tongzhou logistics base tax accounted for four big logistics base proportion also shows ascendant trend, up 17.30% from a year earlier.

Table 1. Comprehensive comparison table.

the above datas is from Beijing municipal bureau of statistics

Tongzhou logistics base attached to Beijing development planning, and its output value and the local regional fiscal income is positive correlation, the unique set of source advantage provides many opportunities for the development of Tongzhou logistics base, this is the Tongzhou logistics base, logistics base for the development of advantages compared to other regions; Beijing function will adjust to a certain extent influence the development of the enterprise, it will also spread to the whole logistics industry of Beijing, If Tongzhou logistics base fail to meet the market positioning, so the adjustment of the industrial chain would threaten the development of Tongzhou logistics base [7].

3.3.2. Political Environment Analysis

Under the background of the coordinated development of Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei, Beijing Tongzhou logistics base deep in the transportation hub in Beijing, policy influence the most aggressive. For the development of the logistics industry, Beijing has launched a lot of guidance documents, such as "overall planning of Beijing", "the logistics industry adjust and revitalization of planning", "The logistics industry development planning with Beijing twelfth five-year period," etc. All kinds of policies are the development of Tongzhou logistics base provides a good environment for development and development opportunities, in the context of integration of the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region, more advantageous to realize the optimal allocation of resources and industrial docking [8].

But as the economic function is weakening, the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei economic circle of the jintang will undertake part of the economic function of Beijing, the corresponding market function of logistics enterprises to adjust, also, in the upstream of the logistics base of the market function will also change, so the economic effects of policy changes for Tongzhou logistics base development, is a challenge.

3.3.3. Traffic Environmental Analysis

The eleventh five-year plan of Beijing development has proposed the new space layout, and supported infrastructure for the Beijing international logistics, regional logistics and the development of urban logistics.

(2) Business projects. Mainly for the Beijing Tongzhou logistics base in and out of goods to provide a platform for procurement, distribution, built set inland port, goods distribution, circulation processing functions, goods distribution, and other functions in one of the "large comprehensive modern logistics hub". Logistics is the main form of freight charge, &highway combined, the information of goods loading, loading of goods. Tongzhou logistics bases as a pass-through of Tianjin port, the burden of a large concentration of import and export goods transport. But some do not have a high level of modern logistics enterprises, supporting facilities is not perfect, single function, combining business with less-than-one carload express and vehicle distribution.

(3) Information technology application. Dominated by phone contact most of the logistics enterprises, logistics information collection, processing, processing, transfer is not controllable factors, logistics information utilization and low efficiency, enterprises lack of logistics professionals, the single management mode.

(4) Development mode and development space. Early development stage logistics base covers an area of larger scale and funds, Tongzhou logistics base's marketization operation model, namely by the base for the development of the subject company solve the problem of funds through bank loans, this will increase the burden of base. In addition, look from the development trend, the current base of land has already can't meet the future development, need to consider the problem of expanding area, the land problem is always the bottleneck of enterprise development.
