There are many obstacles, challenges and associated matters related to the logistics, supply chain management and transportation system. These includes, among others, safety, cost and quality the necessitate real solutions and enhancement.In the process of evaluating the efficiency and the quality of the solutions, the notions and inputs from the expert is significant most important when there is limited means and restrictions.Despite the growth of the third party logistics service providers (3PLs) unsuccessful logistics decision making is still a growing concern in the transport and logistics sector. However, the introduction of ICT modelling solutions for enhancing the process of decision making by the 3PLs in the business of logistics outsourcing has been seen as a step in a good direction.The advancement and management of logistics and transportation system is germane in the economic and social growth of a country, hence, the need for decision-making procedure that must be founded on realistic method. Based on this background, this study adopt the ICT model solutions to propose a series of variable factors that influence the logistics decision making process in the context of Malaysia.It also looks at the benefits of each factor that is considered good in the process of decision making of 3PLs. The aim of the study is to offer assistance to 3PLs practitioners operating under the factors involved in the logistics outsourcing decisions.
