China is a disaster-prone countries, and the annual disasters are making significant losses of lives and property to the country and its people. Strengthening early warning and prevention to disasters are the responsibilities of the national and local governments. At the same time the degree of response disaster relief is also a manifestation of government capacity. Since the materials transportation under emergency scheduling has the following characteristics, such as sudden, uncertainty, unconventional, weak economy and so on. Therefore, to strengthen the research on the logistics corridor will give all the support to the local governments and the staff of emergency material supply centers. It has very important theoretical and practical significance, that provide scientific method to choice logistics corridor in order to enhance its ability to respond to emergency relief work.In this thesis, the subject is selection and evaluation of emergency logistics corridor. The concepts and theories of emergency logistics corridor are cited based on the research situation of domestic and foreign, and the elements to selection the logistics corridor is proposed. The corresponding evaluation index system is established based on the analysis and summarized in logistics nodes, transport network, transport and policy choice of the four factors as the index basis. Based on the analysis and comparison of various evaluation methods, in this thesis, it choices Catastrophe evaluation method, establishes the mathematical model of Catastrophe evaluation method and analysis the idea of the operation. Finally, a case study of emergency logistics corridor selection is given to verify the science and feasibility of the method. Conclusions show that this method is easy to determine the weights to avoid the subjective effects brought in line with the characteristics of dynamic response logistics, and it has good operability and effectiveness. The purpose of this thesis is to identify the factors that influence emergency logistics corridor selection and evaluation indicators, and to find the optimal evaluation model and algorithm based on the research of emergency logistics corridor. It can provide access for reference on the decision-making methods and theoretical guidance which can help government to speed up the reaction rate for the timely processing of emergency events and reduce the disaster on people’s lives and property losses.
