To improve the success rate of the logistics system, a practical system architecture is proposed to design a fourth party logistics (4PL) system based on service-oriented architecture (SOA) and Web services technology. In the proposed architecture, RDF (resource descript framework) technique is used for the reunification of the logistics union data for system semantic integration to address the issues about the heterogeneous data sources of logistics. Meanwhile, a trust model for business process enactment is proposed, as well as the profit distribution model in 4PL is introduced to address how to build customer stickiness and retention, and create new opportunities, and activate the marketing consumption. Comparing with the traditional logistics system, the proposed system architecture has some advances in system expandability and friendly service.
