As for the specialty and importance of choosing suppliers in logistics service supply chain, an advanced QFD model has been constructed with considering various requirements of logistics service integrator, customers and suppliers. This study has smoothly built relationship between indexes of customer needs and evaluation indexes and makes sure weights of every index, with a historical data about logistics service suppliers. After that, this study evaluated all candidates, according to the degree of comprehensive performance about suppliers. Finally, this research validated the efficiency and superiority of the model, with simulating a case to prove it.
