Abstract: Biomedical industry is an emerging industry in China, where new companies are not good at selecting special third party logistics. This paper analyzed the domestic and international research in this region first, then made some improvements and extension on capital asset pricing model for the choice of biomedical logistics enterprises, pointing out that the total relatively expected cost of choosing a third party biomedical logistics company should include risk-free offer cost, cost of risk loss, as well as the adjustment of risk loss influenced by the discrepancy of risk loss volatility between some third-party logistics and the market. Therefore, the factors used to appraise the third-party logistics in the biomedical industry are transferred to be the cost factors, and expressed with the form of price. Then, a case study is also given to get a better understand of this approach. Ultimately, this paper proposed an easy but feasible way to calculate the total relatively expected cost of choosing third-party biomedical logistics, helping biomedical products enterprises to choose the third-party logistics with quantitative standards.


Keywords: Biomedical products, Biomedical logistics enterprises, Improved CAPM, Total relatively expected cost.
