Introduction

Introduction Enterprises are requiring efficient, specialized and socialized logistics service, and will form a market basis supporting fostering and growing of logistics industry in China. Our company is named XXX and it is an e-logistics company operating in China. Our company is operating on a low-cost and effective base. The aim of the Company is to provide fast and in-time delivery in an efficient way to manufacturers and distributors in China.

Due to the rapid development of China's economy, more and more foreign companies have seen China as a potential market. Some of them have already invested in China and others are preparing the investments. China now is the largest source of absorbing foreign investments in the world. According to Ministry of Commerce of People's Republic of China, in the first three months of 2003, the accumulative value of contracted foreign direct investment in China was 22.9 billion and US dollars, setting a record growth rate of 59.59 per cent year-on-year (MOFCOM, 2003).

For example, we need to manage usage of our warehouse, if we cannot find the right supplier, and the warehouse will be unused, then we will loss money. We can arrange the trade off between the demand and price, however, if we set the price too high, or not able to provide service to customer in the peak season due to the warehouse space used up, we are loss credit to customer, so we will give competitor's opportunity to enter and compete. Put the customer first Our service is to ensure the efficiency of customer, any delay of our service will result the damage of customer's benefit. E.g. the delay of product or loss credit and etc. therefore it is important that we can put customer first.
