Abstract:Since an airport is a functional area, an Airport Distribution Center should effectively integrate transporting, storekeeping, manufacturing, processing and other industry‑related functions into one concentrated and high‑efficient logistics environment. In this paper, we divide international logistics into two stages (with four modes) from the viewpoint of value‑added services and develop competitive indices for the transshipment location mode. Then evaluation criteria for the transshipment mode are established. Furthermore, by combining fuzzy set theory and AHP, the competitive hierarchical structure (transshipment) of Taiwan’s Chiang Kai Shek Airport, Hong Kong International Airport and Singapore’s Changi International Airport are established.
As a result, we find Hong Kong Airport and Singapore’s Changi International Airport are highly suitable for development of the transshipment mode.
