ABSTRACT: This paper studies coordination of logistics service symbiotic network in port supply chain of the member enterprise of supply chain and pricing strategy of the core enterprise on the premise of the centralized decision-making. Then it analyses the influence of loading ratio of logistics cost to the benefit of the whole port supply chain. The conclusions are extended to the general case of n order of port supply chain. Conclusions show that multilateral collaboration of logistics service symbiotic network and port supply chain can bring the whole supply chain more efficient. Meanwhile, this paper proposes a third-order port supply chain coordination model based on the service capacities. Based on this, this paper thinks that LSI and its service network need to be included the supply chain and promote actively the port logistics service innovation. Simultaneously, LSI build interactive logistics services symbiotic network. It promotes all companies to cooperate to achieve the joint optimization of the whole port supply chain system
