Although the logistics industry shows a gradual and stable upward trend, but in the economic growth at the same time carbon emissions are also increasing year by year, this paper uses the energy coefficient method to estimate the carbon emissions of the logistics industry in 30 provinces and municipalities (autonomous regions) in China from 2015 to 2019, and combined with the gravitational model and social network analysis method, the spatial correlation network of the carbon emissions of the logistics industry is constructed, and the research shows: (1) Although the carbon emissions of the logistics industry have decreased, the overall emission reduction pressure still exists, and the carbon emissions of the logistics industry in Guangdong Province rank first. It is nearly twenty times more than Qinghai and Ningxia. (2) The spatial correlation of carbon emissions in the logistics industry in 30 provinces, municipalities and autonomous regions has become more and more close, but the progress has been slow during the observation period, and there is still much room for optimization. (3) The centrality of the network has evolved towards complexity and equalization, with Hubei, Guangdong, Shanxi and Henan occupying a dominant position in the network, while Qinghai, Hainan and Xinjiang are in a weak position.
