- In the global economy, E-commerce has become an essential element of business strategy and a powerful catalyst for economic development. E-commerce does not only open new business opportunities, new products and services, and e-business methods. E-commerce intends to develop actively and essential logistics services. Survey results showed that logistics services in Vietnam, although developed quite quickly, still do not meet the demand of E-commerce. The cost ratio for Logistics services is quite high in the selling price of tangible products. Therefore, Logistics enterprises need to pay attention to modernizing management, equipment, especially to promote the application of information technology, strengthen links with businesses in the same field as well as with businesses. Logistics also need to shake hands with E-commerce businesses actively. Therefore, the assessment of the situation of information technology (IT) application in Logistics enterprises, especially small and medium enterprises (SMEs) is necessary, to increase the ability to support current e-commerce operations.
