"New retail" is the product of innovation and transformation of e-commerce, physical retail and modern logistics. "New retail" relies on omni-channel logistics based on supply chain integration, order-driven precise logistics service and high intensity urban distribution carrying capacity, which has brought huge impacts and development opportunities to the logistics industry. At present, there are limitations in China's intelligent logistics, both in terms of logistics infrastructure construction, logistics information services, and regulatory guarantee systems, which restrict the development of "new retail". In order to realize the high-quality support of "new retail" by intelligent logistics, a trinity of intelligent logistics construction path of "government guidance, market leadership, and social co-governance" is proposed. We should accelerate the construction of intelligent logistics infrastructure under the guidance of the government, give full play to the leading role of the market to build an intelligent logistics information platform, and build a multi-security logistics security system through joint governance of all sectors of society to meet the overall objective of the high-quality support of logistics for "new retail".
