Abstract
Logistics Information System(LIS) is known as a critical factor in
achieving logistics competitiveness. Most corporations, however, do not
seem to have clear strategies in meeting the information systems
requirements of this decade. This is partly due to a lack of understanding
about the causal relationship between a corporation’s characteristics and
logistics information system priorities. In this paper, a set of advisable
strategies for LIS utilization is derived from a relationship analysis
conducted by means of LISREL.
From the analysis on 244 sample firms, this study finds that the
utilization of LIS most directly affects logistics performance, while the
utilization of LIS indirectly may affect performance by using a
corporation’s characteristics as an intermediate mechanism, and that
such indirect utilization of LIS has greater influence on logistics
performance than the direct utilization of LIS. Based on the above
finding, this study suggests that the utilization strategy of LIS should
be established in the direction of Support function LIS Primary
function LIS → Connection function LIS.
