Governing for innovation in horizontal service cooperations

Steinicke, Silvia ; Wallenburg, Carl Marcus ; Schmoltzi, Christina (2012)

Purpose – The purpose of this study is to provide insights into the role of governance mechanisms in fostering innovativeness in horizontal service cooperations. Design/methodology/approach – Data were collected from 225 horizontal service cooperations in the logistics industry via an online survey. Structural equation modeling was used to analyze the empirical data. Findings – The choice of go...

Selecting the right supply chain based on risks

Wieland, Andreas (2013)

Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to propose a model that enables a company to select the supply chain strategy based on risk probability p (measure of how likely/often a detrimental event occurs) and risk impact i (expression of the significance of a loss when that event occurs). Design/methodology/approach – This paper discusses four supply chain strategies: agility, robustness, resilien...

The influence of relational competencies on supply chain resilience

Wieland, Andreas ; Wallenburg, Carl Marcus (2013)

Purpose – The purpose of this research is to explore the resilience domain, which is important in the field of supply chain management; it investigates the effects relational competencies have for resilience and the effect resilience, in turn, has on a supply chain’s customer value. Design/methodology/approach – The research is empirical in nature and employs a confirmatory approach that builds...

Partner management – managing service partnerships in the supply chain – a systemic perspective

Zybell, Uwe (2013)

Purpose – The purpose of the research is to shed light on the question of how elements of a partnership system interact to provide a basis for an enhanced performance management framework. Design/methodology/approach – A structured literature review is followed by a longitudinal case study (action research), which combines qualitative and quantitative analyses. Observations over time, documents...

Logistics outsourcing performance and loyalty behavior

Wallenburg, Carl Marcus ; Cahill, David L. ; Goldsby, Thomas J. ; Knemeyer, A. Michael (2010)

Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to examine how goal achievement and goal exceedance influence the aspects of loyalty in logistics outsourcing relationships.

Design/methodology/approach – This effort develops a conceptual model t...

Horizontal cooperations between logistics service providers

Schmoltzi, Christina ; Wallenburg, Carl Marcus (2011)

Purpose – This paper aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the motives, structure and performance attributes of horizontal cooperations between logistics service providers (LSPs). Based on an analytical classification model, distinctive types of logistics cooperation that characterize the logistics landscape are identified. Design/methodology/approach – Empirical data were collected on ho...

Horizontal cooperation in disaster relief logistics

Schulz, Sabine F. ; Blecken, Alexander (2010)

Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to further the understanding of opportunities involved in horizontal cooperation in disaster relief logistics. The potential and realized benefits of horizontal cooperation in disaster relief logistics, as well as related impediments are investigated. Design/methodology/approach – Case study research into three cooperative humanitarian organization initiat...

Dealing with supply chain risks

Wieland, Andreas ; Wallenburg, Carl Marcus (2012)

Purpose – The effects of supply chain risk management (SCRM) on the performance of a supply chain remain unexplored. It is assumed that SCRM helps supply chains to cope with vulnerabilities both proactively by supporting robustness and reactively by supporting agility. Both dimensions are assumed to have an influence on the supply chain’s customer value and on business performance. The aim of t...

Conflict and its governance in horizontal cooperations of logistics service providers

Wallenburg, Carl Marcus ; Raue, Jan Simon (2011)

Purpose – Horizontal cooperations of logistics service providers (LSPs) have becomeimportant for LSPs within the last decades.Owing to the high complexity of these cooperations as observed by Schmoltzi and Wallenburg, the potential for conflict is inherent. This research, therefore, aims to investigate how nature (dysfunctional vs functional) and extent of conflict impact the outcome of these c...

Developing a scale for proactive improvement within logistics outsourcing relationships

Wallenburg, Carl Marcus ; Knemeyer, A. Michael ; Goldsby, Thomas J. ; Cahill, David L. (2010)

Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to establish a scale for the measurement of proactive improvement, in general, and then more specifically in terms of cost- and service-focused improvement in logistics outsourcing arrangements. Design/methodology/approach – Upon completing a review of the literature, scale development is completed in five phases. The first two phases focus on item generat...

Proactive improvement of logistics service providers as driver of customer loyalty

Wallenburg, Carl Marcus ; Lukassen, Peter (2011)

Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to provide a differentiated view of relationship-specific proactive improvement of logistics service providers (LSPs) that distinguishes between the cost and performance and the effect that these two dimensions of innovation have on three distinct customer loyalty dimensions (retention, extension, and referrals). Design/methodology/approach: A confirmatory ...
