LIU Yang-chun;HUANG Ze-kai;CHEN Jia-qi;  
Logistics enterprises in China are now facing many problems. They are operating at high costs,and with low average efficiency; the percentage of value-added services is small; and they lack innovations in the area of information technology( IT) and are slow to apply it to logistic services. These problems make it difficult for them to meet the increasing demands of high-end markets such as the cold-chain logistics,pharmaceutical logistics,and automotive logistics,etc. Therefore,the logistics industry in our country is in urgent need to develop information technology and internet-related technology and make use of them to boost logistic services' value added,and ultimately accomplish upgrading. This paper,based on an overview of the literature on logistics enterprises' upgrading,and the analysis of the case company's upgrading,probes the relationship among influencing factors,paths,and resulting performance of logistics enterprises' upgrading driven by IT and the Internet. The findings show that market changes and government policies can facilitate IT-oriented transformation of enterprises; by relying on both independent technological capability and external capability obtained through mergers and acquisitions,the logistics enterprise is able to achieve standardization,informationization,and automation in its key procedures of logistics,to constantly optimize its supply chain management platforms,and to launch value-added services in various market segments. Consequently,the logistics enterprise lifts itself from low parts of the value chain to higher positions on it,enhancing its total competitiveness and social performance.
