Abstract
Medical equipment third-party logistics service has positive significance to standardized, intensive management for storage and transportation processes, evaluation of logistics capability is the first premise for product manufacturer or operator to select providers. According to the characteristics of the medical equipment third-party logistics, and based on the actual research, this paper proposed an evaluation model, and selected 13 indicators from four aspects in basic resources, business operation, monitoring management and human resources to build evaluation index system. With grey correlation ideal scheme decision method, this paper used the distance of grey correlation degree between third-party logistics service providers and the ideal point to replace gap with the industry benchmark, and evaluated logistics capability according to the size of grey correlation degree. This paper selected data of 10 enterprises carrying out medical equipment third-party logistics service, with the evaluation system and grey correlation ideal scheme decision method to take the empirical analysis, finally concluded the pecking order of enterprise logistics service capability, and given improving guidance to providers in medical equipment third-party logistics ability, which is of great significance to sustainable development for the third-party logistics service of medical equipment.
