The Research on Supplier Selection Model of the Third Party Logistics Based on Grey Clustering

Yewang Zhou
Abstract—Supplier selection of the third party logistics play a very important role in supply chain management, which determine the whole competitive power of supply chain directly, selecting a suitable supplier of the third party logistics become an important component of the modern enterprise strategy. The paper has introduced the index of the third party logistics supplier evaluation at first, then has introduced the existing supplier selection method, point out the disadvantage of different methods, propose supplier selection model of the third party logistics on the basis of gray clustering and multi-objective decision-making with entropy weight, thus get the best supplier. At last set a simple example to explain the validity of the method, which can solve finely the problem of supplier selection of the third party logistics.

Index Terms—Supplier selection, model, grey clustering, entropy weight.
