Study on relationship between green logistics activity and logistics performance



With Baosteel Zhanjiang Iron & Steel Co., Ltd. as the subject investigated, the green logistics activity, which is composed of 4 factors as green product designing, receiving & distribution, warehousing and packaging of green logistics, and the logistics performance, which mainly consists of logistics expense and customer service satisfaction, and mainly discusses the relation between the green logistics activity of an enterprise and the logistics expense reduction and customer’s satisfaction for logistics service in order to help the enterprise to understood the significance of green logistics activity and to make suggestions for realizing green sustainable development, reducing logistics expenses, improving customer service level and enhancing customer satisfaction for the enterprise.
