Abstract [en]

Managers and researchers are increasingly interested in the factor that logistics enterprise competitiveness(LEC) has significant effects on the development of Chinese logistics enterprises, especially in view of theenterprise life cycle. This paper investigates the contents and evolution of the composing factors of LEC inChina by a survey.With Statistical Product and Service Solutions (SPSS 15.0) software, the factor analysismethod is used to determine the effects of each factor on LEC. Furthermore, the comparative analysismethod is applied to compare the composing factors of LEC in different types of logistics enterprises andat different enterprise life cycle stages. The results show that factors of LEC according to their descendingimportance level are corporate capabilities, corporate resources, and dynamic mechanism. Three kindsof corporate capabilities (financial management capability, logistics risk control capability, and humanresource management capability) and two kinds of corporate resources (corporate human resources andcorporate culture) have the greatest influence on the development of LEC, but in reality have poor practicalperformance, and hence deserve more consideration from the enterprises.
