Abstract

The aim of the paper is to use factor analysis to derive constructs such as firm performance, logistics performance, supplier collaboration and customer collaboration. Subsequently, structural equation modelling will be used to the relationship between these four variable. More specifically, it is hypothesized that customer collaboration has a moderating relationship between supplier collaboration and firm performance and that customer collaboration has a moderating relationship between supplier collaboration and logistics performance. It is also hypothesized that supplier collaboration has a moderating relationship between customer collaboration and firm performance and that supplier collaboration has a moderating relationship between customer collaboration and logistics performance. Furthermore, it is hypothesized that all of these relationships are mediated by process integration. Lastly, it is hypothesized that logistics performance results in higher firm performance. These hypothesis are based on existing literature and if they can be validated through structural equation modeling and other multivariate techniques, it would be significant contribution to knowledge for both academics and practitioners.
