Abstract [en]

Research on inter-organizational supply chain interaction (IOSCI) for sustainability can be described as fast-growing and fragmented. It is uncertain to what extent logistics and supply chain management (SCM) literature has been able to close research gaps regarding e.g., empirical scope and sustainability dimensions addressed. A systematic literature review (SLR) is carried out to synthesize the existing knowledge and ongoing trends, and to propose a research agenda. The trend analysis shows that the gap between the environmental and social dimension is increasing, that Asian studies grow nearly exponentially, and that the focal firm perspective gains more ground. The research agenda calls for participatory studies of multiple actors and for studies addressing, e.g., the invisible logistics service providers. This study provides an important complement to existing literature reviews on sustainable supply chain interaction, primarily by its focus on the development over time, the empirical scope, the focus on publications in logistics/SCM journals, and its narrow focus on the interaction among firms in supply chains.

Abstract [en]

Purpose:  This study investigates supplier development from the supplier perspective. The purpose is to explore the supplier’s experienced challenges of being developed by many buyers simultaneously and over time.

Research Approach:  The research is exploratory, using a qualitative approach. The chosen investigative strategy is a methods triangulation study involving a case study in the heavy vehicles industry and focus groups with supplier representatives from an industrial network. Focus groups were performed in order to validate and further develop the case findings.

Findings and Originality:  The findings point towards challenges in supplier development due to frequent turnover of the buyer’s supplier development and purchasing staff, and the related changes in supplier development agenda.  They also point towards changes and developments of the supplier that does not reach the core of the supplier’s business, as different buyers request different developments at different times. This makes it the management staff’s task to present the right information at the right time to the buyer(s), rather than implementing changes based on the buyers’ supplier development work.

Research Impact: To date there is limited understanding of how suppliers perceive and experience the supplier development and the challenges they are experiencing. Through the network approach an increased understanding of challenges, owing to the many actors and interrelatedness between actors in supplier development have been created.

Practical Impact: This study sheds light on that different buyers affect one another’s possibility to develop the capabilities and resources of the supplier. This interrelatedness is something buyers should consider when implementing their supplier development

Abstract [en]

Purpose– The purpose of the paper is to explore the practices with logistics performance management in two textiles supply chains, and to identify the related best practices and barriers.

Design/methodology/approach– The method is a multiple case study of two textiles supply chains with a special focus on the rarely addressed interface between the manufacturer and the retail chain. The retail chains represent one large, global retail chain and one Nordic, comparably smaller retail chain. This paper is primarily empirical and describes practices for logistics performance management. The analysis discusses and explains best practices and barriers for logistics performance managements in textiles supply chains.

Findings– Differences were identified regarding practices, priorities and collaboration in the logistics performance management process. No textiles industry-specific practices were found. A way of exchanging action plans between the actors is an interesting best practice, which enables improvement projects even with long geographical distances. Barriers in the shape of difficulties in creating a collaborative culture were found; however, IT support seems no longer to be a barrier.

Research limitations/implications– Two cases are explored, why a broader study is necessary to confirm the results. The best practices and barriers identified are similar to those known from manufacturing companies.

Practical implications– The detailed descriptions of logistics performance management practices can provide insights for practitioners. Even if the studied supply chains are important for the respective actors, there is a potential for increased effectiveness in textiles supply chains.

Originality/value– Supply chains for textiles products “starting at a manufacturer and ending in a retail chain” seem to be an unchartered territory and not many studies have been performed.

Abstract [en]

Purpose

Research in the supplier development domain is primarily based on studies from the buyer perspective. This supplier development study has a qualitative approach focusing on the supplier perspective. The study aims to identify critical factors for the supplier development program from the supplier perspective.

Design / methodology / approach

In order to create understanding of factors critical for the supplier development program the Critical Incident Technique is applied, since it facilities in-depth explorative studies. The study involves three suppliers to one buyer in the Swedish heavy vehicle industry.  

Findings

The study concludes different critical factors influencing supplier development, such as formal structure of communication and competence level of those employed by the buyer. Further, suppliers stress their own proactivity as a critical factor.

Research limitations / implications

This explorative and primarily empirical study provides additional insights into the areas of critical factors for supplier development by focusing on the supplier perspective.

Practical implications

Supplier development is often enforced by the buyer and in order to succeed, knowledge and understanding of the critical factors from the supplier perspective are essential. This knowledge will allow the buyer to take these critical factors into consideration, will enhance the features and properties of the suppliers and increase the value creation for the end customer.

What is original/value of paper

This explorative study complements previous studies, as it focuses the supplier perspective from an empirical viewpoint
