The transport performance evaluation system building of logistics enterprises

Xueli Wang, Yu Chen, Li Zhang

Abstract


Purpose: modern logistics has a significant role in today’s society, logistics cost accounts for 35% to 50% of total logistics costs, so it’s great significance to improve the transport performance of logistics enterprises.

Design/methodology/approach: the authors select the transportation performance evaluation index of logistics enterprise, with the aid of the fuzzy theory and analytic hierarchy process (AHP), adopt the combining method of quantitative and qualitative analysis, construct the transport performance evaluation system of logistics enterprises.

Findings: the choice of transport performance evaluation indicator system for Logistics enterprise is in a state of "high", which indicates the indicator selection is reasonable.

Research limitations/implications: the selected indicators with experts’ subjective factors can not accurately quantify.

Practical implications: it has important practical significance to promote the development of modern logistics enterprises and save social cost.

Originality/value: current research methods mainly include the PDCA cycle model, key performance indicators (KPI) and benchmarking method, principal component analysis method, etc. The authors for the first time with the aid of fuzzy theory and analytic hierarchy process (AHP), adopt the combining method of quantitative and qualitative research on transport performance problems.
