Abstract

Evaluating the competitive position of location develops global logistics hub (GLH) is a multiple criteria decision-making (MCDM) problem and it is important for governor to implement suitable strategies appropriate its environment. SWOT analysis is very important in the process of strategic formulation. Under many conditions, the evaluative criteria (indicators) are mixed with quantitative/qualitative values and the values for qualitative criteria are often imprecisely defined for decision-makers. A quantified SWOT analytical method, that integrates the method of fuzzy Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) method, was proposed to provide more detailed and quantified data for SWOT environmental analysis to assess the competitive relation for locations develop different types’ GLH in Pacific–Asian region. Integrating the concept of Grand Strategy Matrix (GSM), a suitable competing strategy could be suggested for location developing GLH in accordance with its competitive position.
