With the rapid development of the e-commerce industry, corporate customer service levels have become one of the core competition factors for e-commerce companies. The e-commerce industry based on Internet technology has developed rapidly in the past few years. At the same time, logistics has become an indispensable part of the e-commerce industry. Customer service is an important part of e-commerce companies, but its impact on logistics costs cannot be ignored. The study found that the impact of e-commerce company customer service on logistics costs is mainly reflected in: return and exchange services; after-sales service: customer service; express delivery timeliness requirements. These services require the investment of a large amount of human and material resources, thus increasing logistics costs. To reduce this impact, e-commerce companies can take some measures: reduce return and exchange rates; optimize after-sales service; reduce customer service costs through automation technology and online consultation; optimize logistics processes, improve logistics efficiency, and reduce distribution costs. The research results of this article have certain reference value for e-commerce companies when formulating customer service strategies.
