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 corporations 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

corporations 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.
