Study on the Relationship between Comprehensive Transportation Freight Index and GDP in China

As the fundamental and leading industry for national economic and social development, the development of the transportation industry determines the trend of economic development, and reflects the cyclical changes of the national economy. Freight, as the basis of the transportation industry, is closely related to gross domestic product (GDP) development. This article analyzes the intrinsic relationship between the comprehensive transportation freight index and GDP for early detection of extremely hot or cold development problems in transportation, which not only helps with a better understanding of the macroeconomic trend in the country, but also provides the basis for risk warning of the transportation industry. Analysis results show that the volume of freight traffic and freight turnover of China are positively correlated with the GDP.
