Abstract: 
Purpose: The modern logistics has a significant role in today's society, logistics cost accounts for 35% to 50% of the total logistics costs, so it has great significance to improve the transport performance of logistics enterprises. Design/methodology/approach: The authors selected the transportation performance evaluation index of logistics enterprise, with the aid of the fuzzy theory and analytic hierarchy process (AHP), adopted the combining method of quantitative and qualitative analysis, constructed the transport performance evaluation system of logistics enterprises. Findings: Through the model analysis, we know that the choice of logistics enterprises transportation performance evaluation index system is in the condition of relatively high, which has certain guiding significance to improve transport efficiency and reduce transportation cost for the logistics enterprise. Research limitations/implications: It has great significance to improve the transport performance of the logistics enterprises. But because of the experts' subjective factors, the selected indicators of the text can not accurately quantify. Practical implications: It has important practical significance to promote the development of modern logistics enterprises and save the social cost. Originality/value: Current research methods of transport performance mainly include the PDCA cycle model, key performance indicators (KPI), principal component analysis method and etc. The authors adopted the combining method of the fuzzy theory and analytic hierarchy process (AHP) research on transport performance problems.
