Based on data envelopment analysis model (DEA), this paper constructs a measure function of logistics energy efficiency. Using provincial panel data from 2003 to 2009, it measures logistics energy efficiency in China from perspective of total factor productivity and analyzes the dynamic changes and regional disparity of logistics energy efficiency. The results show that, (1) the average growth rate of energy consume of China logistics is 13.8%, and the output value of that is only 5.7%;(2) The highest efficiency province is Hebei and the lowest is Yunnan which is only 0.3547. (3) The logistics energy efficiency of China in three regions was found while the East is best which 0.815 is, and the West is the worst which is 0.472.
