Qualitative Comparative Analysis of the Factors Affecting the Logistics Capacity of Coastal Ports

Yuting Kong


By using the method of fuzzy set qualitative comparative analysis (fsQCA), taking 15 coastal ports in China as research samples, this paper selects five representative variables from the two dimensions. This paper makes a configuration analysis of the factors affecting the logistics capacity of coastal ports. It is found that the logistics capacity of coastal ports is affected by many factors; the berths of 10,000-ton terminals and the total GDP of port cities are the key factors affecting port logistics capacity.
