  Abstract

Quick Response has become a major strategy to bring competitiveness and has been widely implemented in logistics field. In order to evaluate logistics quick response capability for a logistics firm in a correct way, this paper introduces the process of constructing a quick response capability assessment index system based on a reasonably proposed assessment index framework after analyzing empirical data collected from experts and professionals in logistics field. Based on further reliability analysis, factor analysis, and validity analysis being conducted on the collected questionnaires, this paper formed a logistics quick response capability assessment index system, a 2-level hierarchy structure, composed of 7 secondary indexes and 41 tertiary indexes. The assessment system can be applied to evaluate quick response capability for logistics firms in Guangxi, China.
