Location

Room 2905 B

Session Format

Paper Presentation

Research Area Topic:

Business Administration - Logistics

Abstract

Goals and Objectives

The objectives of the research are to:

-Carry out a review of literature to understand the current state of research on the concept of integration in a firm and compile a list of frameworks that have been proposed to explain its effects on logistics and firm performance

-Propose a framework on integration in logistics management that links it to logistics and firm performance based on the review of literature

-Test the proposed framework based on secondary data using factor analysis

Theoretical Framework

-The study tries to link integration with logistics performance and firm performance. The role of communication as a moderating variable will also be studied.

- It is envisioned that Transaction Cost Economics will be able to explain the possibility of collaboration and communication affecting integration.

Methodology/Data

A literature review will be used to review current frameworks that link integration with logistics performance and firm performance. The proposed framework will be tested using factor analysis. The test will be carried out on secondary data.

Educational/Field Significance

Integration is a concept that has been studied in logistics from multiple perspectives. The compilation of frameworks that address integration and its relation to firm performance will be a contribution to the field.

Proposed Significance/Outcomes

The role of communication within the constructs of integration and logistics and firm performance will be studied along with the role of supplier and customer collaboration
