We studied the characteristics of the decision of TPL under the factors such as enterprise scale, enterprise system. We also examined the relationship between the decision of the TPL and performance.Interview, case study and questionnaire survey were adopted in the research. Data in this paper came from 49 firms and 216 employees participated in the research. The hypotheses were largely supported. The main conclusions were shown as follow:1. Whether logistics was the core competence of enterprises should be judged by four characteristic dimensions: customer value, value superiority, unique, extensibility.2. The logistics resources owned by the enterprises should be classified into three type: tangible resources, intangible resources, organizational capability.3.
