ABSTRACT In order to accelerate national industrial upgrading of transportation and deepen the development of logistics industry, it is imperative to construct the land-sea transportation channel between Shandong and Liaoning provinces. Taking practical situations of the two places into account, the paper aims to investigate the application of M to N mode in the process of cargo roll on-roll off, drop and pull transport and then elaborate the site selection issue of drop and pull centers from the perspective of P-median model. Meanwhile, the paper proposes to adopt “south bridging-north rolling” concept to build a brand new transportation channel which combines the cross-sea bridge with ro-ro ferry concerning the natural conditions in Bohai Bay. Corresponding solution to each project will be put forward at last.
