Currently, the coastal transportation industry is in a fierce global competitive environment, and companies are trying to compete for the market and customers by reducing costs and improving service quality. In order to strengthen cost control of transportation enterprises and improve their management level, this paper proposes a cost control method for goods transportation of coastal enterprises based on earned value method. Based on the characteristics of cargo transportation of coastal enterprises, the composition of transportation cost is analyzed comprehensively. The principle of cost control theory is introduced. It is clear that the controllability of cost has a great relationship with the time and space range of control objects. of control objects. This work analyses the specific composition of transportation cost in China under different classification methods, summarizes its cost characteristics, and preliminarily discusses the control methods that ocean container transportation enterprises should adopt according to these cost characteristics. An example of logistics freight transportation cost shows that the control of transportation cost of water-rail intermodal logistics lies mainly on the control of the whole operation process. The strategies of control optimization mainly include: optimizing infrastructure and special equipment, adopting advanced information system, cultivating high-quality personnel system and improving system environment.
