How to manage enterprise logistic risk effectively is a main problem that troubles many enterprises now. In this situation, applying Interpretative Structural Modeling(ISM) method, deeply analyzed eight factors that influence enterprise logistics risk. According to analysis results of enterprise logistics risk factors, established the ISM hierarchy model in enterprise logistics risk factors, offered three suggestions to deal with enterprise logistics risk: forecasting demand, developing new products, managing suppliers; strengthening management, communicating information, outsourcing transportation; making emergency strategies and measures.
